Floppy Disks Getting Rarer

I didn’t even know Sony was still manufacturing floppy disks, but they’ve announced that production will be ended early next year.

I still have a bunch of these in a shrink wrapped box (just in case I ever want to save a new file on my Commodore 64) — but those are even more rare, because the Commodore drives use an older double-density format.

Remember those floppy disk cases that let you organize the disks like they were paper in file folders?

Interestingly (well, to me), I have old floppy disks from the eighties that have outlasted burned DVDs and CDs from the early 2000s.
