Dick Eastman gives us news about the coming end of the 3 1/2 inch floppy disc. Many of you already no longer use them, opting for CD-ROMs, DVDs, or USB drives. But even so, it is rather sobering when you officially bid farewell to a such a staple of storage. You might also have felt similar pangs when the old 5 1/4 inch floppy came to the end of its life cycle.
At any rate, Dick tells us that Sony, the disc manufacturer, will stop making the product in March of 2011.
