Floppy disk, a relic of the ’90s for save dataStill resisting. A 73-year-old American who works in the field says he sells about 500 machines a day and reports business expansion.
Tom Persky, who lives in California, is in charge of the “floppy disk” store. The company recycles floppy disks, which are then sold to those who still rely on the technology.
In an interview with Reuters, Persky says the equipment is still used in the embroidery and aviation industries. “If you built an airplane 20, 30 years ago, or even 40 years ago, you would use a floppy disk to get information in and out of some of the avionics on that plane,” he says.
“Floppy disks are very reliable and very stable. Plus they have the added advantage of not being highly pirated,” Persky says.
He says that in the 1990s, he worked on software development for a company that burned the system onto floppy disks. After disconnecting, he started investing in equipment and said he was excited about it.
