Iconoclast

I am wondering how long this icon will keep meaning "Save" to anyone:


This icon does not mean anything for my kids already:


For them a phone is either cordless or cellular: no funny roundy thingy on it!

Coming back to my first example, the last time I have used a floppy disk was in 2005: is it time to overhaul our icons?

Actually, when was the last time you saved anything by clicking on an icon??? ;)

But it's indeed a good point :)

You're right: shortcuts rule!

I guess this is what we call "Legacy"...
