There will always be a place in my hard for these two bits of lost tech.

I don't even remember floppy discs and cassettes were part of my life at two, but my parents talk about them so fondly I can't help but feel sad that they're gone.

My favorite of these.
Don't feel bad cassette tape, I still like you. Come over, you can play what you got in my cassette player.
I don't care if it's just some stupid recording, or half of the film is wrinkled. I just like to hear you crackle and spin around.

(just don't invite floppy though, I don't really know him well)

Still using you two every day. My boombox ain't as awesome when it isn't spinning real cassettes, and a computer just doesn't sound right without the sound of a diskette being read and written...

Floppy disks and cassettes will never be forgotten! :dummy: At least, these vintage technologies have an unique feeling, hearing the loud cracking of a floppy drive and subtle noise of a cassette is unique. ^^

I always think about the book on tape thing... "When you hear this sound... *BLINGBLINGBLING*... it's time to turn the page."

Some of you are feeling bad for these items. This is because you are crazy. They are obsolete and the new devices are much better.
