The Floppy Disk means Save, and 14 other old people Icons that don’t make sense anymore


hanselman.com

What happens when all the things we based our icons on don’t exist anymore? Do they just become, ahem, iconic glyphs whose origins are shrouded in mystery?

Floppy Disk – Save

Save? Save where? You know, down there. Adding the Arrow to the 3.5″ floppy makes me smile. Is it pointing to under my desk? What’s a floppy? Why not a USB key? Maybe a cloud icon? That will be easy since there is only One Cloud Icon in the world.

Radio Buttons – Mutually Exclusive Choices

Why are they called Radio Buttons? Because my car radio used to have buttons where only one could be pressed at any time.  I miss my 8-track.

Clipboards

Seriously, short of a doctor’s office or the DMV when are we coming in contact with clipboards? And why is the clipboard the icon for Paste? Why not Copy? Or “fill out form?

Bookmarks

We used to use smaller flat dead trees to keep our place in between the dead trees we would read from so that we didn’t lose our page. No, books didn’t “keep our place when we turned them off.”

Address Books and Calendars

We would write down all our addresses and phone numbers in a dead tree and carry it around with us. Sometimes we’d manage our calendar that way also. Everything was bound together with metal spiral loops. Let me check my Filofax.

USB stick with anti-terror training found outside police station

Superintendent Bryan Lawton, of GMP’s Specialist Operations Branch, told the Press Association: “We are aware of an article relating to the finding of a memory stick belonging to GMP by a member of the public.

“We are currently looking into who this device belongs to, what information is contained on it and the circumstances surrounding its loss.”

Data security firm Check Point said the incident emphasises the wider problem of poor portable data storage practices among many corporates.

Terry Greer-King, Check Point’s UK managing director, said: “This incident shows yet again why data on USB drives must always be encrypted. Guidelines to staff, and security policies don’t stop devices being lost or misplaced, and these simple accidents and human errors will turn into real problems if data isn’t protected.

“Companies should ensure all data copied to USB sticks and CDs is automatically encrypted, and the use of all non-authorised devices controlled.” ®

Keychain cops

By John Leyden

A memory stick containing anti-terror training manuals and other sensitive material was reportedly found on a street outside a Manchester police station.

The Greater Manchester Police-branded stick, which also held personnel files, was found by an unnamed businessman outside a cop shop in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, the Daily Star on Sunday reports.

The device was branded with the GMP POTU initials of the Greater Manchester Police Public Order Training Unit and contained 2,000 files including some produced by the National Police Improvement Agency about counter-terrorism tactics. Names and ranks of officers were also found on the reportedly unencrypted device after its finder plugged it into his PC. Leer más “USB stick with anti-terror training found outside police station”

SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive Weighs as Much as a Penny

Smaller is better — that must be the slogan that SanDisk is banking on with the creation of the Cruzer Blade, which takes small to a whole new level, especially when it comes to USB flash drives. This newly announced piece of tech is about the size of a paperclip, and it actually only weighs about the same as a penny. Yes, that’s ridiculous, but there’s still plenty of space on the inside to actually be worth your while.

SanDisk Cruzer Blade

Capacity wise, the Cruzer Blade comes in a range of 2GB to 16GB, and obviously the prices reflect what you’re getting. Starting at the bottom of the spectrum, you’ll be paying $14.99, all the way to the top of the list, where you’ll be smacking down $77.99. And just because it’s small, doesn’t mean that it can’t transfer your data in a reasonable amount of time, as SanDisk says it can handle it just fine. It comes with a two year warranty, and it’s available right now.

12 Portable Apps for Web Designers

12 Portable Apps for Web Designers

A web designer must always have his or her tools handy. Of course, that is most often the case when you’re working from home or from an office where you have your own work computer.

But if you are constantly on the move or are doing a lot of demonstrations to your customers at their place of business, you’ll need to carry your programs with you.

Scenarios That Benefit the Use of Portable Apps

Most designers just carry their laptop with them. But that is not always possible, and many times, the client wants you to show them how the site or application will look on their own computer, projector and other equipment.

In addition, there are those unfortunate times when your computer crashes and breaks with all the data on it and no ways to retrieve it.

In those cases, a good backup (or even primary) solution is to carry your own toolset on a portable flash/USB drive.

The Feasibility of Using Portable Apps

There are a lot of great applications for web designers that will work without needing any installation, and they make an excellent choice for a portable USB drive.

With today’s USB stick sizes and prices, you can easily have all your work with you in your pocket at all times, and be able to work from any computer without needing anything else.

Here are some of the best portable apps for web designers that are a must-have. Leer más “12 Portable Apps for Web Designers”
