comment Save icon, is the floppy disk icon dead?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit: No, I'm not sure. I did have "external hard drives" in the back of my head as a nagging feeling to my comment, but I chose to ignore it.

comment Save icon, is the floppy disk icon dead?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit: A hard drive has never looked like that. Some computer cases may look similar, which also adds to the common confusion that the computer box is referred to as the hard-disk (and the monitor is referred to as the computer...)

comment Save icon, is the floppy disk icon dead?
@CharlesBoyung: I know. It was an attempt to emphasize your point. It may be poorly formulated, but my intention was to support your statement, and at the same time transfer that point to the floppy-icon used for save.

I think a green checkmark is closest to the best general alternative to the floppy icon.

@Chris: I up-vote this because of the last paragraph in the answer, not because it quotes a geeky movie. It may be that other up-voted this because it quotes a geeky movie, and so it is indirectly the reason that this was the first answer I up-voted here because it was on top...

comment Do user experience practitioners ever have to worry about code?
As Erik Reppen comments, it is a flip side that the UX designer might think something is not possible based on some basic coding knowledge, while a good programmer see possibilities to implement a better design. It is better to do as tpg2114 say; let the designers and programmers work together, so the designers can create a stunning design, and the programmers can give live feedback on how this is feasible or not. See this answer for more depth.

comment Should we re-think the use of the word “Save”
@AndroidHustle: "Put data on hard drive" would be a move in the wrong direction. When I say context specific actions I'm talking about what kind of task the user is working with, not the technical stuff that is actually happening in background (which is not really relevant to the user).
