There eveidentally was as a load of equipment I obtained last year included a
cassette drive that was marked IBM and had the DIN plug on it. I didn't hang onto
it as someone that had previously stored the load of equipment was nice enough to
apparently use the cassette as a wheel chock so therefore it was slightly out of
square. Of course it became part of our ever continuing history buried in
numerous landfills across the US.
