Unless you indicate what vintage it is, your anecdote is worthless!

Random: this morning I saw an 8mm film projector in front of a neighbor's house. I wanted to take a picture (or better yet actually) show my kids, and see who could figure out what the item is.

I'll have to take a pic next time I'm out there. It was probably from the tail end of car phone days (though I doubt it was his first) so nothing crazy vintage wise.

I remember the mob scene when Circuit City had a 25MB flash drive as a Black Friday doorbuster. Think it was maybe $40? The crowd was storming the counter to try to get their hands on one.

IDK, the audio seems to indicate two additional names, but I can't make it out clearly.

Took a picture. Only one daughter made an attempt (tape recorder) and got it wrong (I guess my kids never heard that GIYF).

My father worked at a large secular music company as a mastering engineer, and they were the first to master in digital. He started working there in 1980. Music was stored on an external drive - he showed it to me - the size of a large gaming desktop, connecting to the computer with four cables the size of the space inside the hole when connecting my thumb to my index finger. The total capacity of the drive was 1.4GB (two albums - the original and the copy), and it cost $5000 at that time (whenever it was).

@Something Fishy you might appreciate this (if there isn't too much of a language barrier)
