And branded.

I don't recall that anybody referred to "DASD" connected to our IBM 1401;
it was just "disk".  Were we just a weird corner (I wouldn't swear they
didn't use some weird term like DASD in the manuals, just that none of the
people I worked with used it)?  Or was that a later term, say from the 360
generation?

(When I worked on the 1401, we were in fact well into the 360 generation
chronologically, just not at the place I was working; that was in 1969,
and we moved from the 1401 to a DEC PDP-11/20 just a couple of years after
that.)
