As storage solutions get continually more compact and efficient with each passing year, it can seem unbelievable just how far we’ve come. A one-gigabyte file is easily stored in the cloud these days.
But back in the 90s and early 2000, we stored our files on things like floppy disks. And it would take 711 1.44 MB floppy disks to store one gigabyte. That’s a whole lot of floppy disks. Thank goodness for the cloud, right?
