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.

Can we please just kill off floppy disks already? And while we're at it, kill off the best reason to use floppy disks as well: Windows XP and its stupid "You can't install on a SATA hard disk without putting SATA drivers on a floppy" installer.
