To Floppy Drive or Not to Floppy Drive?
That is the question these days.
Why is there a floppy sign on the computers anyway? That is so 1980’s. Most young users don’t even know what a floppy drive is anymore.
It could have been changed to a CD ROM icon years ago, but that is already outdated by now. Even if it was changed to a USB icon, that is on its way out too. External hard drives are more unusual as not everyone utilizes it. A cloud icon could be used for demonstrating that one is saving a document on a cloud-based network. However, all of these icons would vary depending on what the consumer chooses to utilize as a method to save work. In addition, they will most likely be outdated in a few years and replaced by something newer.
How about a SAVE Icon? One that simply says the word “Save”. It streamlines the purpose of the button making it timeless for future inventions to come with more memory and processing speed.
