What words have entered the venacular in the last decade?  I was wondering this as the person beside me discusses when SUV became common usage ...I also heard someone say "LOL" in a conversation!

So, what's new?

There are new words, and new uses for old words
(we've seen e-mail "forwards" about the new uses for words like "network" or "mouse" et al)

Snail-mail
Cyberspace
DVD (not that new, but new)
IPOD
Download

High tech kinda stuff.
