The Iomega Bernoulli Box was very early 80's. And Iomega had
been around doing some S-100 and other mini-compatible stuff for
a couple of years before the Bernoulli Box.
Some of their early products were like SyQuest's early 80's cartridge
drive offerings... but as far as I know not exactly compatible.
I seem to recall a S-100 product I once owned called "XOR/IOMega". Don't
know if it's the same thing.
Remember when a Mega of anything was a lot?
Talking about other companies that are still around... every time
I drive by EMC's local office complex I think about the PDP-11 and Nova
EMC memory boards I have. It's amazing, 30 years later and the
logo is just the same, although the company itself seems to have
completely forgotten anything before the mid-90's.
