The Floppy Disk Drive

The floppy drive has become essentially obsolete. Only capable of storing 1.44 megabytes of data per disk; it has very limited usefulness. Storage space on CDs and DVDs is hundreds or thousands of times greater. Quick and easy portable data storage is conveniently handled by USB flash drives.

Once all software is designed to support other mediums, little or no need will exist for the trusty old floppy.
