Tech buzzwords – they pop up everywhere… It seems that every month we’re faced with learning a whole new set of acronyms and terms for techy ideas when we consume content online. Yes, it’s as if the IT industry doesn’t already have enough of them…
To most of us working within computing and cloud software distribution, tech terms are a normality, however, for millions of people terms like ‘HTML’ and ‘RAM’ are nothing more than letters on a page.
That’s why we decided to survey the public to see just how many people were lacking in knowledge when it comes to computing terms –our findings, which were insightful and somewhat amusing, showed that 23% of respondents thought that HTML is text-speak for ‘Hi There My Love’, and 36% believed ‘cryptocurrency’ related to funeral finance, among other results.
It seems plausible that the speed at which the technology landscape develops is the reason as to why we are faced with an ever-growing list of buzzwords and acronyms. So, as the industry keeps up the momentum and the words keep flowing, we’ve picked key computing terms for every letter of the alphabet (yes even x) and given the proper definition – we hope you find it helpful!
