Victorinox Makes 1TB Swiss Army Knife 143

judgecorp writes "The Swiss Army knife has been available with storage for some time — now there is a 1 terabyte version. It comes with two bodies, so the storage can be swapped out into a flight-safe version with no knife or scissors. The company left the price off its release, but sources suggest it is $3000."

    Uh... read the specs again... that's 1 *TB*, not 1 *GB*.

    Then again, I remember when the only storage computers had was 4KB of RAM... and I'm sure some on here can remember when you had to fit it all on a punch card. Those were a bit bulky to carry on a flight, I'm sure.

    Warning: Pure nostalgia only below!

    I still have a working 10 meg MFM hard drive, that requires two 5.25" bays to mount in. My 8086 only has 8 bit ISA slots, and the only IDE controllers I've come across have required 16 bit ISA or PCI.

    Before I gave up the display shelf space, I had 4 drives sitting next to each other to show off how physical size is shrinking while storage size is growing.

    Left to right is:
    10 MB - 2x 5.25" bays and 8" deep (And about 10 pounds)
    300 MB - 3.5" IDE drive
    750 MB - 2.5" IDE drive
    1 GB - 1" wide Compact Flash card

    Now I just need to add in a 32 GB micro SD card...

    Not to mention a few boxes of 8" floppy disks, and a crate of 5.25" floppies (Back when floppy disks actually flopped!)
