    This is a waste of time and energy. Saving will be dead by the time they come up with something to replace that icon. Apple has been working to do away with save buttons and web apps like google docs reaffirm this. In the future this will be the standard.

      I think I agree with you. If I weren't lazy, I'd hunt down the link about why the concept of "sync" is dumb. Why do we have save/sync everything all the time? Should it just be safe, in sync.

      I've been working with a startup for a few months (my first job like this) when it hit me, "I'm not backing up anything on my work laptop." One of my co-workers pointed out that there was no need: all our code was on Github, all our files were on Dropbox, and even every app I use every day could be quickly downloaded and installed (Adobe Creative Cloud included).

      So happy not to have to be concerned about backup anymore.
