Spooky-Scary Tech Terms

“In our never-ending quest to gather terms and information for
Webopedia’s growing database of computer, Internet and technology
definitions, we have found many acronyms and tech terms that strike
us as being odd, weird or just plain spooky!

“Some acronyms we have found are better off classified as
tongue-twisters, while other terms are words we use in every day
language and can’t figure out why the word was chosen to represent
an aspect of technology — terms like Zombie or BLOB, for
example.

“To celebrate Halloween tech-style, we’re bringing you a fun
— but totally legit — list of some of the spookiest
acronyms and tech term oddities we’ve come across while compiling
the Webopedia database. Who knows, maybe one of the following tech
terms will spawn a costume idea that will bring first place at this
year’s office (IT) Halloween party.”
