Icons Of The Last Generation

Scott Hanselman humours about the icons that do not make sense in this generation. I personally, though, still like some old icons, like the calendar or telephone or the microphone. Today’s devices are so software-oriented that their physical design do not emote the functionality as well as their older versions. Everything from TV, personal computers, tablets, music players to phones – all seem to be rectangular, buttonless with glass surface. And each of them seem to be able to do the other’s job. Of course, not to say that the icons should not evolve, but I can’t help but like the TV icon over anything that works like a TV today!

    I like what you have to say. I agree completely. What is new today will very soon be old. I too, hope the keep the TV icons.

Say your thought!
