In the video above, floppydisk.com president Tom Persky describes his process of collecting and re-selling the archaic digital storage devices known as floppy disks, and casually drops the name of one of his clients: the US Government.

"We do sell to the US Government," Persky says. "There are a number of applications that the government has that call for the use of a floppy disk."

A NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS? I suppose you don't have to worry about your data being hacked from the Cloud if you keep it on floppy disks.
