Government Agencies Still Using Floppy Disks

Decades behind


If handed a floppy disk, most teenagers today wouldn't know what they were looking at.

According to a report in the New York Times, the Federal Register is still receiving couriered documents on floppy disks and CD-ROMs, despite technology existing that would digitize the process.
