Media Works, has come up with a list of new terms from the 2006 landscape of new technology.
One of the standouts is the new associated definition of Zune, Microsoft’s iPod knockoff.
ZUNE: Microsoft’s new music player. Also [slang]: a poseur; a wannabe. Usage: “Dude, you look like such a Zune in that shirt.”
Another fun one pertains to all us bloggers out there:
SICK MINUTES or SICK HOURS: Minutes or hours taken off of work when a person comes down with one or more viral videos, the watching of which entirely precludes productivity. Sample usage: “Jim’s going to be late for the meeting — he came down with a viral video and had to take some sick minutes, so he’s scrambling to finish his PowerPoint.”
