Scott Hanselman: The Floppy Disk means Save, and 14 other old people Icons that don't make sense anymore

A really amusing article about GUI design, focusing on icons that don't make a lot of sense or are hopelessly outdated.

Of course, some of these are more wrong than others, but it is a good read.

Unfortunately, trying to come up with replacement icons for some of these (especially the floppy disk) that will be intuitive to novice users is not an easy task.
