Federal Agency Still Uses Floppy Disks

Yes, you read that right:

Floppy disks, whose use peaked when MTV still played music videos, are no longer featured in any of today’s (or yesterday’s, or last week’s) computer hardware. But still, the Government Printing Office, which runs the Federal Register, accepts documents on CD-ROMs and floppy disks, but not flash drives, SD cards, or email.

Which still puts them ahead of Healthcare.gov.
