Cynthia Tamworth on how she uses Floppy Disks (as quoted in the BBC):

I buy these little beauties for a quite different reason. The floppy disk costs an average of £3.66 for 200, however they have a resale value of £5.50 at any good computer recycling centre, so I buy them in bulk and simply sell them directly at a profit. Take that, Bill Gates.

This list was spurned by Sony’s late to the party decision to no longer sell Floppy Drives. Reading through the list I couldn’t help but remember my middle school summers that I spent at my Father’s company formatting floppy disks to be reused and checking that there were no ‘important’ documents on them. Good times.
