So the 3.5-inch floppy disk had slightly more capacity than the first
mainframe computer tape (1.44 MB vs. 1.4 MB).

Subject: Historical note - Univac 1
Tomorrow, June 14, 2011, is the 60th anniversary of the dedication of
the first commercial computer purchased (Univac 1, purchased by the U.S.
Univac 1 used magnetic tape with a capacity of 1.4 MB
A recent SAS installation depot we downloaded required weighed in at 22
GB (24,055,939,072 bytes). By my calculations, SAS could have been
delivered on a minimum of 16,387 Univac tapes . ;>)
