Celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the Hard Disk

It’s been a long hard road for the hard disk drive, but the device has reached the top of its game after 55 years in existence. The original commercially released unit by IBM looked more like an old jukebox rather than a modern day HDD, but it was a start. The unit leased for $38,400 a year and held a whopping 5MB storage capacity. You’ve come a long way, baby! Happy anniversary cool
