From the latest edition of CNN’s Computing News:
“Dell saying bye to floppy disk drives:
In what may be the wave of the future, Dell Computer said goodbye to the past on Thursday when it announced it would stop making floppy disk drives standard equipment on its higher end desktop personal computers. “
Hello CNN: Apple gave up on the tedious and overly small floppy drive years ago and, in fact, to give credit where it’s due, it was NeXT Computer that was the first to eschew the floppy drive. Grumble, grumble.
