Sometimes old words are adopted by new technology, and used in a new way, requiring a new definition. But new technology moves quickly, and sometimes after we’ve used the technology a while the initial definition needs an update to something more accurate. That’s when it’s time for NEW NEW DEFINITIONS FOR OLD NEW WORDS.
Today’s word: SYNC
Old Definition: short form of either the noun synchronization (to be in sync ) or the verb synchronize (to put in sync); harmonize (-ation)
Old New Definition: verb or noun form still apply, but referring to the technological process of making multiple devices/platforms such as home computer, cell phone, laptop, ipod, iPad all have the same data at the same time.
New New Definition: for no useful or excusable reason, this application will make at least four copies of all your shit.
