Win 320GB Seagate FreeAgent Go portable disk!

SeagateSeagate wants to celebrate 30 years in the industry. They have announced a contest. To win one of five beautiful “Seagate FreeAgent Go” disks you must submit them your photo. But it is not as easy as it must be a 30 years old! They accept photos made in 1979. It is the year when they first hard drive ST506 have been released. It was as huge as 5MB of storage… really! And it was pretty much for the 1979. More details is available on the contest page. Good Luck!
