How fast technology moves

I had a bit of a double-take this morning that I wanted to share.

The first computer I used (an Apple IIe) had 64 kilobytes of RAM (actually, I guess it’s technically more correct to write kibibytes). The densest permanent storage I had access to were single-sided 5.25-inch floppy disks (I remember feeling quite proud when I got my first “notcher” which allowed me to put a professional-looking write-protect notch on the other side). I had to look up the exact number, but the Apple DOS 3.3 format stored 140KiB per side of a 5.25-inch floppy.
