I found an awesome video which shows the history of media storage (oh my god it took me back) which got me me thinking about how far we have come from the days of spending vast amounts of money on floppy disks, zip drives and CD’s to paying a few pounds/dollars a month for storage online.
To put in perspective, check out this picture
When looking at the picture I can’t help but think that will there be a time when there is too much data and not enough storage? Or if the devices today will ever be able to keep up with the demand? Either way it’ll be interesting to see and in today’s world to technology, anything is possible
Either way, we hope you have taken a moment to reflect on data storage and hope you’ll appreciate where we are and where we have been.
Have an awesome day and enjoy the video
In 1996, two graduates, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, from Stanford University built a search engine but it wasn’t until the graduates filed for registration in September 1998 for the domain Google.com, and officially on the 27th September 1998 the world was introduced to a website with nothing but a search bar and button.
13 years on, “Googol” is the biggest search engine on the Internet creating over 19 BILLION searches a month.
Happy Birthday Google and thank you for your help in allowing the world to broaden their horizons on the random stuff we ask you!
