7 Very Entertaining Tech Statistics

b2ap3_thumbnail_you_have_no_idea_400.jpgDo you think you are up to date on your tech jargon? A recent study conducted byVouchercloud.comasked 2,392 adults multiple choice questions about the definitions of common technology terms. The findings suggested that many of the people were not as current as they thought they were. 

The interesting thing about this study is that 61% of the respondents said that, “It’s important to have a good grasp of today’s tech speak.” We agree 100%.Staying current with trends in technology is important if you want to succeed in today’s work place .Unfortunately, based on the results of this study; it looks like there’s still a lot of educating to be done regarding the meanings of even the most basic tech terms!

  • 77% of respondents could not identify what SEO means. SEO stands for “Search-Engine Optimization”
  • 27% identified “gigabyte” as an insect commonly found in South America. A gigabyte is a measurement unit for the storage capacity of an electronic device.
  • 42% said they believed a “motherboard” was “the deck of a cruise ship.” A motherboard is usually a circuit board that holds many of the key components of a computer.
  • 23% thought an “MP3” was a “Star Wars” robot. It is actually an audio file.
  • 18% identified “Blu-ray” as a marine animal. It is a disc format typically used to store high-definition videos.
  • 15% said they believed “software” is comfortable clothing. Software is a general term for computer programs.
  • 12% said “USB” is the acronym for a European country. In fact, USB is a type of connector.
