Photo-a-day 45/365 Floppy discs

I remember when these were the amazing new portable digital storage medium, displacing the 5.25" floppy.

We thought they were great because they were better protected from fingerprints and scratches and they held so much more data.

Now I'm just throwing them away because they're completely useless. I don't even have a floppy drive in my main computer any more. (Though I can still read them on the laptop.)
