"We don't need no stinking floppies!" That's what Apple said when they decided to exclude the popular removable media drives from their entire Macintosh line. It really is a step in the right direction. Floppy disks are an unreliable method for backing up a computer, as they degrade and lose magnetic integrity over time. Besides, these days most files are too big to fit on a floppy, and small files can easily be e-mailed to another computer. But what about all the poor souls who bought a new computer and need to read their old floppy disks? They can either buy an external floppy drive, ... or cram their floppy disks into the built-in Zip drive and see what happens.
