I still have a punch, to cut the second read/write notch when flipping 5 1/4 inch floppies in an appleIIe
Time to do some cleaning dude. Actually the 8 inch and 5 1/4 were called floppies. The 3.5 inch version was sometimes a floppy and sometimes not. I think Apple wanted to distance its hard case floppy from the others and emphasize the perceived superiority of their product so tried to create a separate product group for it. Today it would be the iFloppy. There were also 3 inch and at least one in the 2 inch category which were attempts to lock in people to one specific vendor. Today you'll have to contact almostbob to find one.
don't know what apple wanted but I never heard or read of the 3.5 being any thing but a 3.5 floppy to be read by a floppy drive,I never ran into 8 inch floppies guess at that time I was busy playing race car driver. Later---
