Pair of Twiggys

Superdrives (floppy drives) are starting to be a problem on 68k Mac systems 
because they fail (motors die, heads get ripped off, etc).  The later ones 
with the black flap (cost reduced) found on PPC systems seem to last. Same 
problems with the IBM PS/2 floppy drives.

Twiggy drives seemed to be junk even new, which is why they changed the 
model to use the Sony 3.5" drives.

I always wondered about the wisdom of single-sourcing storage devices
such as the Next optical drive, the Twiggy or the SuperDrive of the
early Macs.
