Depending on your age, the 3.5-inch floppy disk will either look familiar or totally archaic.  It held just over 3MB of data and was the second iteration in portable data for the computer.  Before that it was a 5.25-inch floppy that held less data, was about twice the size and was literally floppy, hence the name.  The 3.5-inch floppy USB drive merges a bit of the old with the new and gives reason for not only this article but a little reminiscing, something I’m doing a lot of as I get into my 30s.  It looks like a concept only, but of all the flash drives we’ve seen in recent years there is no reason why this one shouldn’t get produced.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
