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.

Well, I am surprised they are still being produced at all. And now we have the cards and sticks and what-not... I wonder what will be next ... maybe instead of a USB stick, a bluetooth device? They probably already exist, don't they.
