[Computerworld] Today's $60 1TB drive would have cost $1 trillion in the '50s - Page 7

post #61 of 79
Shouldn't there be a temporal policy against this? If someone goes back and gives a 50's IBM engineer a Core 2 System, and they reverse-engineer it, it could change history.

I agree. SSD is the next big thing. I can see a 1tb SSD at a fair price (I wish within 5 years...) and that will be awesome for storing important files. Less worry in keeping your files and of course faster.

And you'd need a 1.21 jigawatt-powered flux capacitor to run your laptop..and if it ran faster than 88mhz, it would light on fire and shoot you into another dimension, where you're a werewolf playing basketball.

Heck, if you were to bring a first gen. Pentium 60mhz cpu back to the 50's, we'd probably be living on Mars by now.

After StorageTek, I went to work for an oil company servicing tape drives and disk drives. The crown jewel at that time was a 500mb disk array that took 2 people to move and cost $40k! If it broke, I was responsible for replacing the bad part (even the heads), calibrating it and restoring it to service. I also used to repair floppy drives...

Now I am dated...
My step father used to work at a place that had those 1301 drives and there where support engineers once and twice a week to fix or simply check on the drive since they weren't allowed to touch it.

Kinda like how it's with the electricity grid in houses today. Only electric engineers are allowed to do changes to it
Uhh.. Thing

Yea to many problem arise with traveling back in time. I don't think it will ever be possible. Obviously forward travel is very much possible, as it's already been done on a small scale.

i can picture this being on troll science!

1, Buy 1TB Hard Drive
2, Make time machine ( follow one of the many tutorial on www.trollscience.com. )
3, go back to the 50's and sell Hard drive.
4, repeat until $ = ∞
