500kb should be enough for anyone!

This URL has been making the rounds at Microsoft, someone found pictures of an old 500kb hard drive from 1975. It's amazing how fast technology changes; 6 years later the first IBM PC (model 5150) came with an optional (but almost everyone bought one anyhow) 180kb 5-1/4" disk drive; it took just 3 of those disks to exceeded the capacity of that hard drive, and you didn't need to wear a bunny suit to use them, either.
