Bernoulli drives looked like they were going to take over storage for machines like the beeb at one point, and the Bernoulli box was invented by Iomega a couple of years after they started out back in 1980-81. Whether Bailey and Norton had the beeb in mind as a target is anyone's guess, but one can imagine the Beeb (with a big B) might have been interested in bringing the beeb (little b) to their attention, given big B's requirements for storage in some applications.
