As you know, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on airplanes recently. In the April version of the Delta Skymag, they had a hilarious section about new slang words that have been created due to the infusion of technology in our lives. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I did:
Blackberry Jam: A delay caused by a person walking slowly, nose glued to their PDA.
Brickberry: The old clunker of a phone you’re using while your iPhone is being repaired.
Defaced: When a person is deleted from someone’s list of Facebook “friends”.
Designated Texter: Someone who receives and responds to the driver’s text messages to ensure passenger safety.
Kthxbi: A quick ending to an online conversation that’s going nowhere.
Shypod: Someone who won’t share his or her iPod for fear of being exposed as a disco/country/Neil Diamond lover.
Textrovert: Someone who’s comfortable revealing emotion via his or her thumbs.
