Remember floppy disks? I wager there's a good chance that many of us haven't even touched one in years, unless you work in an IT field where they are still useful as a workaround for booting trouble.
Well, whether you're still using them, simply have "fond" memories of how you used to need a dozen of them to install a program, or you're scratching your head and have no idea what the heck a floppy disk is, it's time to say goodbye. Sony is officially putting the 3.5-inch floppy disk it introduced back in 1981 to rest next year, marking 30 years of the floppy as a format. Come March, 2011, the company won't be producing them anymore.
Somehow we don't imagine we'll see people crying out like they did when Polaroid film was discontinued.
