Everyone talks about the Save Icon being a floppy disk, but I'm here wondering for how long the cartoon representation for "having an idea" will be an incandescent lightbulb. I bet many children haven't ever seen one in person by now.

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
