    there was a time when "gay" ment happy and "lol" ment you couldn't spell. Technology has changed our way of talking, what is some new words we say that just a couple of years ago had a different meaning?

    Gay still means happy. :D


    Only slightly tech related, but more forum and grammar nazi related:

    Irregardless - It used to mean absolutely nothing and still really does.
    Deceptively - Still used by people and still doesn't really mean anything.



    Reality used to be where most of us lived. Now it is a type of tv show.
