A Byte of Fun

by Krishna on April 6, 2007

Here are some words before they changed their meaning:

gate window bit chip mouse
button apple web net folder
bold paste save log hit
menu server excel access mail
page label feed star home

If you don’t know the original meaning of the word, either you are too young or spending too much time with technology. Of course, you can always find the meaning by trying a “define: word” search using Google.

It is interesting how many words go out of common circulation because of scientific and technological advances. And how much our lifestyles have changed because of the Internet, cell phone and other gadgets.

The good thing about all this is that each of us has a wonderful set of bed-time stories for our grandchildren. They will probably have no idea about what we are talking about and the stories we tell will sound like amazing fairy tales.
