Ran across this old brick a few hours ago, digging through the cable graveyard.
Looks like an old iPod, right?
Well, not sure I ever played music on it.
This was one of the few options as a storage device for traveling photographers, way back in 2004.
S & I honeymooned on Safari (not the browser) in late ’04, early days for consumer-digital-photography.
My “big” chip was only 256 MB.
So Belkin made an adapter to dump the CF to the iPod.
What puzzled me, looking at it this morning was how thick it was.
Then I remembered: it had a spinning disk drive, not transistor memory.
Seems so old-fashioned now.
Incidentally, I bought this exactly 20 years after taking delivery of the first-ever Macintosh in early 1984.
That was the all-in-one with no hard drive. Instead, it had that multi-spin, multi-noise disk drive.
