Hardware, Embedded Systems "In the first purchase of his collection, Sellam Ismail loaded the trunk of his car with old computers he stumbled upon at a flea market for USD 5 apiece. He soon had filled his three-car garage with what others would consider obsolete junk. Years later, his collection of early computers, printers and related parts is piled high across shelves and in chaotic heaps in a 4500-square-foot warehouse near Silicon Valley. And it is worth real money."

I have listened to a speech that Sellam Ismail did where he talked about how his hobby/obsession grew. He actually performs a valuable service of recovering data that is in old formats that are not available today.
