That one is not even close to the first. The first one I saw,
which probably was not the first either, was in the spring of 1984.
An LMS CM-100 (I think that's right). Proprietary interface, big
box, top loading with a clear lid (you could watch your CD spin).
LMS stood for Laser/Magnetic Storage, Inc. which I think was part
of (or maybe spun out of) Phillips-Dupont Optical (PDO).
