This ad is probably from the mid-1980s. A massive 26MB hard drive for only $5K. As the ad points out, that’s less than $200 per MB. Now that’s a deal you couldn’t have refused. We should note that $5K in those days is equivalent to $10K in today’s dollars. Imagine, paying $10K for storage just enough for a few mp3 songs!
The advances in computing, storage and communications have been beyond imagination. What’s yet to come cannot also be imagined. I am always amazed.
Anyway, what’s on your mind?
