GeneralReading between the lines...questions from non-IT people Pinmemberkmoorevs19-Mar-14 9:23 
I constantly hear non-IT types misusing terms. My brother in-law just texted to ask 'Does flash drives come from adobe? I cant view ESPN video...etc'. OMG | :OMG: I showed it to the wife who commented 'what a moron, he means a zip drive!'. WTF | :WTF: Unsure | :~
 
I tried my best not to laugh, or correct her. Roll eyes | :rolleyes: but I couldn't help myself.
 
Other commonly misused terms and what they actually mean to say:
0: upload - download, copy, import, export
1: file - folder (or the other way around)
2: database - any kind of file, but usually not a database
3: memory - hard drive space (or again, the other way around)
 
What are some of the funnier misuses of IT related terms you have heard?
