New tech related words have been added to the dictionary
These are tech related words that you could correctly use in an essay, because these words are in the dictionary. Take that Grade 7 (Standard 5) English teacher.
Sadly as this dude pointed out, the verdict is still out on how to pronounce gif. The creator of the GIF says it is pronounced JIF but he is wrong.
The Stranger Things 2 trailer is out!
Not sure what I’m talking about, check out the Stranger Things edition of Bytesized here.
Stuff you can talk about this weekend to make you sound intelligent: Snapchat’s IPO
- Ahead of its IPO in March, Snapchat’s parent company, Snap Inc is looking to raise $3bn for what will probably be the highest ever tech IPO evaluation. We’re talking about $25bn!
- When Snap Inc filed its IPO papers, some eager beavers who thought they were buying Snapchat stock, were in fact buying Snap Interactive shares (video and dating app aka NOT Snapchat). Sucks to be them.
- While Snap Inc made $404m last year, they lost $514m. And here we thought it was a cash cow.
- The founder of Snapchat is only 26 years old.
