INFOGRAPHIC: A Guide to New and Outdated Tech Terms

Why Trust Techopedia

One interesting thing about the fast pace of technology is all the new language that comes along to describe it. Just as words like VCR, compact disk or floppy disk drive might already be meaningless for younger people, many of the terms we use today are already on the endangered list, and may soon fade into the background as technology continues to move forward.

This infographic by Lebara Mobile looks at words that are endangered, words that have taken on new meaning, and even takes a stab at predicting some future terminology. Which tech words do you think have staying power, and which will become obsolete?

Oh, and if you run up against a tech term you don't know the meaning of, check out our comprehensive tech dictionary for answers.
