RIP Diskettes

Dell has put the nail in the coffin of the good old Floppy Disk. They will be removing disk drives from their higher end machines, and where Dell goes, others are soon to follow.

The technology, whether you are talking about the old 8-inch, 5 1/4 inch, or the more sturdy 3.5 inch disks, has changed very little in the last 30 years, but new technologies such as CD-RW (Writable CD’s) and USB Keyfobs have made the Floppy Disk a thing of the past.
