Hard Disk Drive Patent- Historic Technology Patents Series
Back in the bad old days of the 80's, the amount of data you could process on your PC was limited to the number of floppy disk drives you had. PC users became proficient in swapping floppy drives back and forth, reading some here, writing some there, and Heaven help you if inserted one out of order.
Then in the mid 80's, you could buy something for your white desktop PC called a 'hard disk drive.' These things held a whopping 20Mb of data - the equivalent of hundreds of floppies. PC users stared at each other slack-jawed, wondering how in the world they would ever use that much space.
This plaque bears the text and image for one of the original patents for the hard disk drive - truly one of the game-changers for computing. This would look fantastic in the office of any computer-oriented person - be they someone new in the biz, or actually old enough to have used one.
