In this Buzzwords lesson, we introduce you to some words for some popular mobile phones. What kind of phone do you have? Are you a "Crackberry" user? Or do you prefer the iPhone?

Thank you for posting! I too am learning Japanese and find flashcards VERY helpful. :D


@Ahmed

Thank you for your kind feedback. I think we call them "phone addicts." :)

Hi! very interesting lesson.I never had a crackberry nor an iPhone. I was wondering if there is any buzzword describing people who are addicted to their mobile phones

I don't have neither a CrackBerry nor an iPhone. I'm using an AT&T Tilt, which is also a Pocket PC. I can live without my phone even though I use it for a lot of things like note taking in class, personal calendar, stop watch, alarm clock, games and most importantly Stackz - a very helpful flashcard app that I'm using to learn Japanese. The only thing I can't live a day without is herointernet and air. Who's with me?

Thanks again, but my programming skills are even worse than my English, unfortunately.

Eismann,


If you don't mind, I'd like to give you some corrections to help you with your English!


Apps is just a short term for โ€œsoftware applicationsโ€. ->

Apps is just short for โ€œsoftware applications.โ€


we have to distinguish software users actively use (Applications) from software that is started and used automatically (operating systems, services, demons). ->

Hi Salivia :)


The abbreviation for the word "abbreviation" is internet slang! The one that I know use is: abbrv. But of course it's different for everyone ;)


And thank you for your suggestions. We do a similar type of lesson at some of our other sites. We call it Idioms and Phrases. So it's definitely a possibility for us to do the same lesson here!

Some more buzzword suggestions. Probably not the most current ones but I did not found them in the German-English online dictionaries:

"social networking"

"social engineering"


There was also a buzzword for letting the internet users produce the content of your web service. Something like Cyber Harvesting. But I forgot the actual term. :roll:

I would not say that an App is a special application because there is nothing special about it. Apps is just a short term for "software applications". In the past people just called them "software programs" or "programs" or even "progs". But at some point in computer history some person decided that the term program is too general and that we have to distinguish software users actively use (Applications) from software that is started and used automatically (operating systems, services, demons).
