I did read somewhere that a kid saw an actual 3.5 disk and thought it was a 3D print of a save symbol.It's unlikely we'll forget the floppy disk, as it'll probably be used as the "save" icon for the rest of time, and every so often a curious child will ask "what is that?"
I had to go to ebay a couple of years back to buy a VCR so I could play back the camcorder tapes I recorded in the early 2000s. I still need to buy one to play the HD camcorder tapes I recorded in the late 2000s.I know that archivists working in museums have to go onto ebay to buy Betamax and 8-track tape players so that they can convert video and music to more modern formats.
Danny, what a blast from the past. This might have been the least well known of all Sony products (of those which were mass produced.) But weren't they the Giant back in the "Walkman" days? ---- How that changed. Sony now is just one of many fighting a losing battle with the smart phone.
