20 Things Gen Z Will Never Understand
1 Floppy Disks
News alert to all the kids out there: the save icon actually has an origin. It’s called the floppy disk. These handy little disks were at one time used to store all your data in the early days of the personal computer.
In the “I’m getting old” department.., a kid saw this and said, “oh, you 3D-printed the ‘Save’ Icon.” pic.twitter.com/rwgCpSjfDQ

While kids today can click into the cloud and find all their information, saving your data didn’t use to be that easy. In fact, it was pretty darn difficult to keep all that computer stuff straight. Plus, floppy disks didn’t even have that much storage space! Gen Z-ers can click a button and have all their information stored away. At one time, that was only a dream.
