Word of the Year

by @ 8:01 am. Filed under Technology, Pop Culture

Steve Job the founder of Apple Computer has had an ongoing rivalry with Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft for years…Obviously, if we check bank accounts Gates wins hands down . He can buy Jobs 15 times over (poor Steve is only worth about $3.3 billion)…but Jobs recently gained a distinction that even Gates can’t buy. Steve has been so inventive in the world of technology that now he now has left his mark on our language. The word Podcast (derived from Apples iPod) has been selected as the Word of the Year by the New Oxford American Dictionary. Definition, please…Podcast- “a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the Internet for downloading to a personal audio player.” Good job…or should I say Jobs…I’ll bet Gates even has an iPod hidden in his desk drawer…I know I would if I was worth $51 billion.
