BREAKING: Sony discontinues floppy disks.

Apparently. Does anyone care? More than that, how could Sony be discontinuing a format today that my close, personal friend Steve Jobs discontinued YEARS AGO when he removed them from the iMac? Am I suck in another Groundhog Day-esque loop? Christ, I hope not, I just told my wife my idea to buy her a facemask so I can pretend she’s Steve Jobs anyone but her when we’re having nuptials, and that’s a reaction I never want to have relive.

    Walt – how do I upgrade my PC’s bios without floppy disks? This announcement has me genuinely concerned.

    Newer motherboards can have their BIOS updated via USB.

    I know it sounds dorky, but I had a “funeral” for the floppy disk.

    I filmed the entire thing:
