The floppy disk has been around for over 25 years, and according to Wikipedia – most manufacturers stopped supporting them by 2010. The floppy is pretty iconic, and you would think that anybody who’s been using the computer for a decent amount of time would know what it is. Especially since a lot of software still use the little floppy disk icon to signify the “save document” function. Anyway, you get the picture. Here’s a video of some 5 and 6-year-olds that have that been asked to tell me what a floppy disk is. Viewer discretion is advised: You’ll feel pretty old.
