The History of the Floppy Disk - Input Output - 0 views

  •  
    In the fall of 1977, I experimented with a newfangled PC, a Radio Shack TRS-80. For data storage it used-I kid you not-a cassette tape player. Tape had a long history with computing; I had used the IBM 2420 9-track tape system on IBM 360/370 mainframes to load software and to back-up data. Magnetic tape was common for storage in pre-personal computing days, but it had two main annoyances: it held tiny amounts of data, and it was slower than a slug on a cold spring morning. There had to be something better, for those of us excited about technology. And there was: the floppy disk.

Building a PC? You Need This Chart - 2 views

  •  
    If you've ever built your own PC, you know it can be a rewarding and cost-saving experience. But unless you're really fluent in pin counts and socket shapes, remembering which pieces go where requires a lot of Googling.
    Reddit user Proteon shared a fantastic image that itemizes all the ports, connectors, sockets, cards, slots and cables you'll need to identify when piecing your baby together. The valuable resource quickly reached the front page of /r/pics, and Redditor zeug666 pointed out in the comments that the poster was created by deviantART user Sonic840. There's a larger and more up-to-date version on his profile which we present to you here.
