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.

And that's why I thought MiniDisc's were awesome and going to take over the world. The awesomeness of a cd combined with the protection of a diskette. If the price had dripped to $100 before they were obsolete I would have bought in.
