Welcome to the World of Tomorrow!

From TDWTF Sidebar:

The usage of floppy disks has declined tremendously over the years and people who are new to computers may have little or no experience with them. i never gave this any thought until recently when I was helping a co-worker with Microsoft Word.

I noticed that she always saved files by clicking on File –> Save. So I just casually mentioned “You know, there’s another way to save files that I think is easier. Just click on the disk icon”.

She stared at me blankly. So I pointed to the floppy disk icon. This was followed by a long pause and then she said “Oh ….. I thought that was a TV.”

Fast-forward ten years or so: Co-worker, now senior level, is explaining to a new employee how to save more efficiently. New employee says, “What’s a TV?”
