    Inb4 how do they work? These are magnetic disk mounts that allow you to stick CD's/DVD's/video games to any magnetic surface. Of course, with a little ingenuity you could probably slap a bit of sticky tape on the back and stick them to ANY surface. Then maybe your roommate w... / Continue →

    Another day, another person playing the Imperial March on pieces of obsolete computer equipment (another 3.5" floppy attempt HERE and a hard drive version HERE). Admittedly, this is probably the best-sounding one to date. My last date? She sounded like a banshee screaming li... / Continue →

    Technology, you know? It comes and goes so quick. One minute I'm stuffing 5¼" floppies into a Commodore 1541 disk drive to play Bounty Bob, the next I'm carrying around a lifetime of music on a stick smaller than the Naked Wizard's penis. Kidding! It's actually bigger, but ... / Continue →

    Apparently this is some sort of Samsung advertisement showing what you can do when you RAID 24 256GB solid state drives together. The fun includes: achieving a transfer rate of over 2GB/sec, opening all of Microsoft Office in a half-second, opening all 53 programs in the start... / Continue →

    That's right, March 8th marked the "historic demonstration of the first CD prototype codenamed 'Pinkeltje' on March 8th, 1979." Well congratulations, compact disc, I almost forgot you were still here. While many would argue that the CD is on its way out in favor of smaller, h... / Continue →

    While this little gallery of cars undoubtedly showcases some seriously geeky automobiles, I don't know if they're the geekiest. I'd like to think the Zelda-mobile and the AeroCivic would be in the running for top prize. That said, I would still never be caught dead in one of ... / Continue →

    Nice, but where's the 3½" floppy for us less fortunate guys? Or, for The Superficial Writer, a 2" flash drive? Haha, I peeked over the urinal divider! Why We Always Write to the Hard Disk [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Star Wars Imperial March played on a 3 1/2" disk (the 5 1/4" floppy's rigid little sister). It's just as awesome as you thought it would be. Unless you thought it wouldn't be awesome, in which case you're wrong. Just like I was when we were playing al... / Continue →

    I thought Iomega went under after my 100MB Zip drive broke and I called them to complain for a few hours about the much needed documents (read: porno) that I now didn't have access to. Well it turns out I was wrong, the company still exists. They were flashing around their new ... / Continue →

    Designboom is selling floppy disk CDRs. They're really just little 80mm disks in the little cases, but whatever. Each has a 200 MB capacity and comes with blue, red, green and yellow labels for customization. You can get one for $14 or 4 for $32 (including shipping). They'r... / Continue →
