1956 Hard Drive

I received this via email, so of course it may not be true *grin*.
The email states that it's a hard disk drive  back in 1956... with 5 MB of storage.  In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the  first 'SUPER' computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a 'whopping' 5 MB of data.
