the end of an era

welcome to the 21st century my friends- floppy disks are out After 30 years as a mainstream form of data storage the floppy disk is now being killed off. Following on from other manufacturers like Apple who dropped it in 1998 and Dell in 2003, Sony is the latest to stop producing floppy disks. Its not surprising really, as you can store more information for a fraction of the cost on a USB drive or a CD. So if you are still fiddling around with floppys then its probably time to upgrade!
