I don’t want anyone to take this seriously, but following a recent corporate PC software upgrade which included Microsoft Outlook 2007 and IBM Lotus Notes 8, I was browsing through the new menus and observed that the “Save As” menu button (for Outlook) and the “Save” menu button (for Lotus) both use obsolete floppy diskette Icons:
Microsoft Outlook “Save As” button
IBM Lotus Notes 8 “Save” button
I’m slightly embarrassed to say that I heavily used and distinctly remember floppy diskettes, but I’ll bet there are a lot of people using these applications who have never seen a real one, which begs the question: what do these icons mean to them?
Just having some fun…
