The End of the Floppy Disk?



The BBC is reporting that superstore PC World will stop selling floppy disks when current inventories run out. The article has a rundown of the various stops along the way that have led the floppy disk to this point. The only time I use a floppy disk anymore is for a BIOS update. Even though there are other methods available for that know, I guess you could say I’m just old fashioned.

That said, in my industry, most control boards for stage lighting use floppy disks to save current lighting plots and cues for a show. Wonder when we’ll see those not inexpensive pieces of technology come standard with optical drives?
