Well I know that you all don't use this obsolete storage device, but here's some facts.

Did you know that you can put 24 minutes of crappy 8 kbps mp3 media? The audio doesn't sound that good, but atleast you can still understand the lyrics of the song. Sounds are encoded at 8000 Hz samples per seconds. higher than that can make it sound even worse.

Wasn't expecting that's possible get .mp3 files with a such low bitrate. A 3.5 inches floppy disk, the latest used and most diffused ones, is capable of 1.44 MB.
