Has the flash drive officially replaced the Floppy disk and CD ROM?
Who doesn't remember the floppy disk right? If you had an important file or a bunch of important files, you'd save them to your floppy disk for safe keeping. You'd also add them if you plan on exporting them or transporting them somewhere else. Like a trip to the library or a friends house for example. CD-ROM's were used for the same purpose. But most people used CD-ROM's to transport programs, computer games or music that they were going to take with them on a trip.
Then came the USB flash drive. Which could hold lots of data. Currently on the market there are USB drives that can hold a little over 500 GB's of data. There's also a Kingston HyperX Predator drive that can hold 1 TB of data! But along with being able to hold far more data than your average Floppy or CD-ROM drive, USB's were also smaller and more compact than CD-ROM's and Floppy disks. Which made for better and easier transportation.
A lot harder to damage too. CD-ROM's for example were subject to getting scratched up or cracked. Floppy disks meanwhile could get dusty or bent and no longer function properly. USB flash drives aren't indestructible, but based on how they're built they are much sturdier than the former. Which begs the question, have they officially taken the place of CD-ROM's and Floppy disks in our tech lives? I know some people still use CD-ROM's to backup their OS installations but there are flash drives that can be used for that purpose also.
