Save Icon

Just noticed that the Save icon is a floppy. Neither of my kids have ever used a floppy, but I know they have seen an old box of them at some point. I'm not sure they would connect the icon with the item. I know when they think of saving they are not thinking of floppies. Yet the icon persists. It has a life of its own beyond the representation of the long past item.
