When I was in high school I thought the SuperDisk was going to revolutionize portable data storage. In my mind, it was a sure-fire success.
For those of you unfamiliar with the SuperDisk, it was basically a bigger, faster version of the 1.44MB floppy disk developed in the mid-90’s. I mean, think about it, we were used to carrying around 1.44MB floppy disks, and along comes this amazing device that has 100 times the capacity and is the same size! With the growing popularity of the even-larger capacity Zip disk and the rapidly declining cost of CD-R and CD-RW media by the year 2000, the SuperDisk soon faded away into obsolescence.
