Technology is changing everything including our very language and the way that we speak. It's responsible for the creation and use of new terms and new words. And if you don't want to appear out of touch, you definite need to be hip with the jargon. In fact, some 'slang' terminology becomes so mainstream that anyone would be lost without some of these terms.

Here are a few of the latest:

"1. BLAMESTORMING: Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.
2. MOUSE POTATO: The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch potato.
3. SWIPEOUT: An ATM or credit card that has been rendered useless because magnetic strip is worn away from extensive use.
4. 404: Someone who's clueless. and last but not least 5. CROP DUSTING: Surreptitiously passing gas while passing through a Cube Farm." Stats for Blamestorming, Mouse Potato and Swipeouts Trending: Older & Chilly
