Who remembers the 5 1/4 floppy disks? One of the initial storage mediums that were introduced. I had boxes full of them, mostly stored with games. The days we used to work in c prompt! Then along came the 3 1/2 disks and we marveled at the shrunken size and increased capacity (if I remember correctly).
My days in university, when my Power Point Presentation had to be stored in at least 6 such disks!
Now we have a plethora of storage devices, USBs as common as a cup of tea. And they come in all sorts of cute designs. This is mine, a gift from my seven year old nephew. 🙂
We come from a generation that can actually say, “Cell phones didn’t exist.” I wonder what the coming generations will replace the words “cell phones” with, when we are long gone? Will there come a time when they speak of the current high tech gadgets in the past tense?
