You can learn from anything to everything every single day, if you put your heart to notice the little changes in life around you.

Hard disk of 1956

When you look at this picture you might have thought that they are trying to carry some tray of things up to the plane, but "does it necessary to have such a big hole?" some might have asked.

And how much was the hard disk size?

5 MB
