Actually, I think CD-ROM deserves a nomination. It's an optical floppy
/without/ any protection from outside forces whatsoever. It's actually quite
horrible. It's also a read-only memory. Granted, there are burners trickling
down the market now, ten years after the introduction of the medium, but to
write anything to a CD, you have to go through an intricate mastering process.
At least cassettes usually had a simple user interface.

En ligne avec Thor 2.6.
When cherry tree blooms, people go and walk there, eat dumpling, bring sake
and talk each other such things as "A superb view!" and "Full of spring here",
and they become very happily and cheerful. But this is a lie. People gather
below cherry trees and get drunk, vomit, fight, which are happening since the
old days of Edo period. From long time ago.
