Your most hated meme/ term/ phrase in tech?

For me, it is "future proof". Nothing is future proof, dummy! My god, does it annoy me.

Next to that is people who shorten "mobile phone" to "mobile" and "microwave" to "micro". Those last two actually make me almost want to slap them across the face with all my might.

So what are your tech-related pet peeves in vocabularies?

In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.

Not much of a saying, but it really grinds my gears when people claim on there resume that they're "good with computers" then they get in here and don't even know what Task Manager is.
ditto.

My mobile said it was futureproof, but I proved it wrong by zapping it in the micro.

Not really a phrase but when people click the scroll bar and drag it down really makes my skin itch
I do this because my mouse scroll wheel is starting to squeak and I have to replace it.

Don't hate me :(

application or program is fine, but can't stand the term app
script? code? function?

I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.

 

This is NOT the signature you are looking for.

In my hometown, "computer" includes the case, guts, monitor, keyboard and all the other stuff. But when they're referring to the case and its guts, they call it "CPU" which I get annoyed every time I hear it.
I like puter :D

A guy at my school talks about how he knows a ton about "microchips" (a brand) and always tries to help people with their problems on the computer. Usually it's a very simple issue, and he usually tells the person some random response like "You need to defrag your hard drive" or "You need a new CPU". When I overhear him "helping" someone, I usually just sit back and watch :P.

When people say I have X gigs of memory, it's gigabyte not gigs...
Giga or Jiga :D

When people call a monitor a computer and the actual computer a CPU, also when someone says a "Mac" is better than a "PC" because they are both Personal Computers.
