Circa 1995 I purchased one of the first 100Mb.* HDDs imported into my country. The price was eye watering! In the vicinity of three thousand Euros, if my memory doesn't fail me.
People would come from other offices and companies to watch "The Beast", and in those days I heard lots of conversations starting with "remember when...?"
Six or seven years after that you could buy a memory stick of a bigger capacity for peanuts.
Interesting times, indeed!
