Earlier this week the Washington Post pointed out something many of you may have already noticed: People are using fewer and fewer words.
Can you think back to a time when people would actually say, “just kidding” instead of “j/k?” Remember when Charles Schwab was Charles Schwab? Now, he’s just Chuck. At one point in time people greeted each other by asking, “What’s up?” What’s up was then shortened to “What up?” (Because dropping the “S” really saves that much time? Come on!) and now many people simply say “SUP?” What has the world come to? Tweets have even gotten shorter.
All this abbreviating and acronym generating has led to a lot of confusion. Especially here in the world of telecommunications. In this post, blogger and Managing Editor of the TDS Residential Blog Missy Kellor, explains the difference between 3G, 4G and 10G networks.
