Time to upgrade save icon

Google -retro Google is celebrating its 17th birthday and has a lovely image of retro technology. I have a nice purple lava lamp next to my computer. My old csi monitors are in the garage waiting until I can lift them to recycle them. Why did we ever use such hefty monitors? My retro laptop comes out occasionally and I have an old word processor which prints one line at a time to thermal paper.

But what about the save icon? I have floppy disks.I know what they are. I regret not having a floppy drive any longer. 1.44MB of data was huge. How did we manage all that storage? Yet the floppy icon lives on as the save icon. How many will still know what it represents? How many will have seen a floppy disk? Isn’t it time to move on and upgrade the save icon to something more relevant?
