Found in the basement earlier this evening:
I realize my hand looks like I’m the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man, but I promise, I am not 60′ tall nor a gazillion pounds.
I was lucky enough to grow up in a house where we always had computers in the house, since somewhere around the mid-to-late 80’s. We had a 2,400 BAUD modem and AOL v. 2.0 (if not earlier) when graphics were optional. Somewhere around the mid 90’s we got the first Iomega Zip 100mb drives to replace floppy disks. Wikipedia says this old Iomega stuff is actually collectable, but whatever.
EMC bought Iomega for $213mm in ’08, wonder what they’re carrying the assets at now…
Remember when a 100mb, 250mb, or a whopping 1 GB (Jazz drive) was a big deal? Now, we’ve got thumb drives that hold several times that and 7+gb of capacity in our gmail inboxes.
Time flies, eh?
