Earlier technologies like magnetic tape 🧲📼 required that the CPU starts from the beginning of the tape and go through it till it gets to the data it needs

It can randomly go anywhere in RAM!
Random Access is probably not a great name! 🤮
It should have been something like DAM (Direct Access Memory) 🙃
