Again, sorry for the delay… More extenuating circumstances :P This question will also stay up till about 1900 hrs IST tomorrow.

Answer:

  1. Iomega’s entry into the market was with the Bernoulli Box, a high capacity floppy that utilized Bernoulli’s principle to get the data surface and read head to behave with each other.
  2. An aerofoil; Lift caused by Bernoulli’s principle

Basically, (2) was a clue to (1) :P

    They both utilize Bernoulli’s principle.

    Bernoulli\’s Box by Iomega

    (Just when I thought that the Stats class at ISB won\’t be of much use to me)

    that’s iomega’s bernouli box drive, which is supposed to use bernouli’s principle, which is what is the essential funda behind aeroplane flight, etc.

    Iomega’s Bernoulli Box and an airfoil both use the Bernoulli effect to function.

    Zip drives were based on something called the Bernoulli box, which used the Bernoulli principle in its functioning.
