Hardware, Embedded Systems Invented by IBM, the death knell sounded by Apple. Sony has announced it is going to cease selling diskettes altogether, with the last bastion being Japan. Sales will be ceased there too, even though Sony still managed to sell 12 million of them there last year. While Memorex and Imation still produce and sell diskettes, this move by Sony surely means it won't take long for the rest of the market to vanish, too.

one wasn't enough

Ha, I remember trying to convince my mom that my Mac Plus needed an external floppy drive, because just one wasn't enough. I eventually got it, and then a 20MB hard drive, too. And my friends were jealous!
