ANSWER: While you can still see images of this as the "save button" on many programs, the floppy disk did indeed exist as format to save data on back in the "old days." We admit that this sounds a lot like the dot-matrix printer, I guess back in the '80s everything sounded the same.
Again, let us know (email@example.com) if you have any other suggestions.
