I saw this earlier today from my Facebook feeds. Just thought that it’s worth sharing.
Memory was something you lost with age.
An application was for employment.
A program was a TV show.
A cursor used profanity.
A keyboard was a piano.
A web was a spider’s home.
A virus was the flu.
A hard drive was a long trip on the road.
And if you had a 3 inch floppy, you just hoped nobody found out.
What do you think? Can you relate? The computer and the internet indeed changed a lot of aspects of our lives – they altered the meaning of some of the common words that we used before.
What other words and things did the advancement in computer technology change? Care to add to the list above?
