The Evolution of Data Storage

Over the past couple of weeks I became addicted to the shows of tested.com, especially the episodes in which Adam Savage of the MythBusters shows the guys around his cave and storage where they geek out about model building for films and the ones in which Adam builds amazing stuff from scratch.

In this episode however you will learn about Bits and Bytes and the evolution of data storage – how physically big they used to be and how huge a computer needed to be today if you would use the old IBM parts. Spoiler: humongous!
