SanDisk's little microSD card sucks up 400GB

David McCarthy

1st PCs

My first ones were all bought by my employer (I was very persuasive), as I couldn't afford anything at the time.

Don't know the make of the first one but it was huge, had two 8" floppy drives and no hard disk. I think the screen was from Israel.

Company mainframe at the time was ICL with cat's cradle of metal rings for memory.

Second was a Torch micro, built in Cambridge, based on BBC micro ... 20MB hard drive.

Ah, the joy's of non MS operating systems and applications!

Happy days!
