Sunday Chatter – 5/2

Remember That Thing Called a Floppy Disk?

A Floppy what? The ancient Floppy Disk you may have used in the 1980’s and 90’s is actually still around, despite many retailers no longer carrying them in North America. However, the old technology is still huge overseas, where the USB drive hasn’t completely taken off yet. Tech guy Chris Pirillo examined this issue earlier in the week and says the disks are still being bought and sold in the U.K., where millions of them are moved in the marketplace each year. The computer I bought in 2004 (that I still use today) has a floppy drive. Actually, it’s completely useless and I never used it even in 2004.

Why Your Target Demographic is Important

Many Internet marketers don’t take the necessary time to study and understand their target demographic when it comes to marketing to a certain group of people. They may think they know what their audience likes and what appeals to them, but you have to take into consideration every variable and situation possible. If you misread or misjudge your demographic, that could lead to losing out on a lot of potentials sales/profit. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a list of free tools to analyze niche demographics? Zac Johnson did all the heavy listing and provided that list to his readers this week. Thanks, Zac!

Mathematics — Man vs. Woman

It’s not really related to blogging or Internet marketing, but fellow blogger John Chow posted a hilarious list of man vs. woman mathematics. What do you get when you pair a dumb man with a smart woman? Marriage. Zing! That’s just a sample tidbit of what you can expect when you view the entire list.

    I saved some Flexible disks back home in the UK. They are brand new, but the old style ones that are like 7.25 inches in diameter, It’s so long that I don’t remember exactly anymore. I thought they might become collectible.

    And thanks for highlighting the John Chow post, I missed that one and had to comment on it. :smile:
