This Giant Chunk Of Metal Is 4KB Of Memory

What's this gent holding? A toaster? Farm equipment? Part of an engine? Wreckage from a destroyed tank? Nope — that's 4KB of old-fashioned IBM memory. That's enough to hold 12 per cent of my Facebook profile picture!

Editor-in-Chief of CNET Reviews Lindsey Turrentine discovered the rugged computer antique in her grandfather's barn. Not a bad catch! Turrentine pointed out the wonderful irony that the image itself is 692KB — meaning she'd only need to find 172 more of these memory modules and a tractor trailer to transport the pic around.
