The Original Computer

The Original Computer!!!! 

Memory was something you lost with age
An application was for employment
A program was a TV show

A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano
A web was a spider's home
A virus was the flu
A CD was a bank account

A hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

Hard to guess ?

An old photo

What is it ?

Hint: picture was taken in 1956...

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. 

And this was the 'portable' unit!
