If SD cards are thin and flat and in a similar shape of floppy disks why don't we just make floppy SDs with tons of storage, amirite?

The voters have decided that swiggybaby is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

For the people born in this millennium: a floppy is a fysical version of a "save-button".

When you say tons of storage, what do you mean? Terabytes? That is out there now.

Jam that in your raspberry pi.

Storage density and access latency is inferior for spinning media.

A floppy disk was a round magnetic disk inside the square plastic protector so you can handle without damaging the data, maybe a better question is: why aren't 3.5" SD cards.

What would that be exactly? Would it spin for some reason? Or would it just be an extra large SD card?
