GUI Design: will Egyptian Hyerogliphics replace CUA text menus?

I am excited to join Mike Magee´s latest tech site, "Tech Eye" ( as a regular writer, in addition to my ocassional INQUIRER piece.

Here´s my first article ... inspired by Google Chrome´s "Monkey Wrench" icon and the total disappearance of CUA menus.

Is this the future of GUI design, and are CUA menu standards going down the tubes, fast?. Should we despair?

And what´s with Google ignoring CUA on one app, but implementing CUA menus in Google Docs?. Guess that people ARE used to CUA style menus after all, huh?.

Feel free to read the article, and have your say in the comments section...
