I did read somewhere that a kid saw an actual 3.5 disk and thought it was a 3D print of a save symbol.It's unlikely we'll forget the floppy disk, as it'll probably be used as the "save" icon for the rest of time, and every so often a curious child will ask "what is that?"
I had to go to ebay a couple of years back to buy a VCR so I could play back the camcorder tapes I recorded in the early 2000s. I still need to buy one to play the HD camcorder tapes I recorded in the late 2000s.I know that archivists working in museums have to go onto ebay to buy Betamax and 8-track tape players so that they can convert video and music to more modern formats.
