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.

Yeah, I was just thinking, "Crap, where am I going to get floppies for my Amiga 4000?" Then again, I have always had bad luck with floppy drives, and disks becoming bricks, but for some reason... only PC floppy disks. The Amiga and Atari STs I have still work.
