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.

To be honest, I only had to do what you say once or twice, but I get your point. And reading through this thread, it seems that I was able to buy pretty much every faulty 3.5" diskette on earth. I lost countless hours and money to those things. So please forgive my bitterness.
