The original floppy was an 8 inch, single sided disk first developed in the late 1960's as a result of research efforts by IBM. The first floppy disk drive systems became commercially available in 1971. They cost more than a new PC costs today.
The floppy disk was introduced in the 1970's, and it revolutionized data storage in the PC. It ran strongly for some time, but faded in the 1990's. It is rare to see a working machine being used in this day and age with a floppy drive in it.

IBM discovered the floppy disk, don't ask me where =P im guessing IBM NewYork but that's a guess
Alan Shughart - Melili100 :)
IBM had a team of employees do this.
a floppy disk slot is what you put the floppy disk in on a CPU
A floppy disk is a magnetic disk used to store computer data. A floppy drive is the drive that the disk is inserted into to read and write data on the floppy disk.
Avril Villaranda invented the floppy disk in 1978
the 8-inch floppy disk which held 79.7 kilobytes.
no the floppy disk rotate slower its because hard disk rotate faster then floppy disk
As an improved method for storage and transportation of computer data.
The 3½ inch floppy disk has 1.44 MB disk space. The 5¼ inch floppy disk has 1.2 MB disk space. The 8 inches floppy disk has about 1 MB disk space.
It's higher than Floppy Disk Associate, but not quite Floppy Disk Board of Directors.
To read a floppy disk, you insert a floppy disk into a floppy disk drive. Not all computers have floppy disk drives. Typically desktop computers or ones that stand on the floor have floppy disk drives. New machines today allow a USB thumb drive (USB flash memory storage device) to be used in place of a floppy drive. All modern computersy have USB connections. If you need to read a floppy disk and you computer does not have a floppy disk drive, you can purchase a USB connected floppy disk drive for your computer.
A floppy disk DRIVE can read, erase and save information on a floppy disk. The disk can't do it by himself.
For putting a floppy disc in. Floppy discs were used a lot in the 1970's as CD's were not invented until the 1980's
what are the strengths of a floppy disk
The term "Floppy disk" is also used in German as is "Diskette" or "Floppy"
