Graphics and icons

Many organizations develop regional or international standards in computer graphics. The development of useful symbols in the computer industry is not an exact science. Standards are constantly changing and are not always universal. For example, the Apple trash can icon is not considered an effective "delete file" icon because trash cans of this type do not exist in every country. The meaning of the icon is not clear in every market.
