We are in 2019. Wait, really?! It seems that BMW is not.
I found a funny UX Design example from BMW these days.
Even if their headline is “Always ahead of time”, BMW is still using a Floppy Disk icon for the save action in their configurator.
And there are a lot of other examples where the Save action it’s associated with the Floppy Disk image.
Because this is the most common symbol used as well on the stock websites:
A simple search on shutterstock.com will show us a lot of results where the Floppy Disk icon it’s still en vogue:)
I think we really need to think about other symbols to replace the obsolete Floppy Disk icon.
I am now thinking about what will we tell our kids about the Floppy Disk. Maybe a visit to the Computer History Museum will help 😉
