Computer technology has become a major part of people's life.

This technology has its own special words.

One example is the word "mouse".

A computer mouse is not a small animal that lives in building or open field.

It is a small device that you move around on the flat surface in front of a computer.

The mouse moves the pointer or courser on the computer screen.

Computer expert, Douglas Engelbart, develop the idea for the mouse in the early 1960s.

The first computer mouse was a *** *** of wood with two metal weels.

It was called a mouse because it had a tail at one end.

The tail was the wire that connected it to the computer.

Using a computer needs some training.

People who are experts are sometime called "hecker".

A hecker is usually a person who writes soft *** program in a special computer language.

But the word hecker is also used to describe a person who trys to steal information from computer systerns.

Another well-known computer word "google", spelled g-o-o-g-l-e.

It is a name of  a popular search engine for the internet.

People use the search engine to find information about almost any subject on the internet.

The people who started the company named it googol, because in mathenmatics.

Googol spelled g-o-o-g-o-l, is an extremely large number.

It is a number one followed by one hundred zero.

When you google a subject, you can get a large amout of information about it.

Some people like to google their friends or themselves to see how many times their names appeared on the internet.

If you google someone, you might find that person's name on a "blog".
Blog is a shorten name for a web log.

A blog is a personal web page. It may contain stories, pictures, comments and links to other websites.

Some people add information to ther blogs everyday.

People who have blogs are called blogers.

Blogs are not the same as ***.

*** is unwanted sales messeges send to your electronic mailbox.

The name is based on a funny joke many years ago on a British television show *** *** ***.

Some friends are at a eating place that only serves a process meat product from the U.S called ***.

Every time the friends try to speak, another group of people start singing the word *** very loudly.

This interfere with the friends' discussion just as unwanted sales messeges interfere with communication over the internet.
Truth  is stranger than fiction, because fiction is obliged to stick to possibility. Truth isn't.
