I fear the world is spinning too fast

So I’m sitting here with an external hard drive that is smaller than my little finger and holds what used to take four hundred floppy disks. I think it’s probably significant that the clerk thought to use the floppy disk analogy rather than a CD analogy.  He probably thought I’d be more apt to relate to the older model.  Now my problem is I can’t figure out how to plug it in.  Sigh.
