If you’re a geeky parent, this might be an upgrade on “A is for Apple.” Oh, wait. That part doesn’t change.
Most of these should be familiar to most netizens but, just in case you’re mystified, here’s a digital nursery rhyme to help you remember:
A is for Apple, user-friendly as can be
B is for Bluetooth, which connects printers to me
C is for Core Duo, a faster computer chip
D is del.icio.us, a social bookmarking trip
E is eMule, a file sharing client
F is for Facebook, a social networking giant
G is for Google, which searches most knowledge
H is for Holon, an Israeli college
I is for iPhone, a touchscreen smartphone
J is for Java, a language well-honed
K is Kazaa, another file sharing service
L is for Linux, an open source OS
M is for MSN, Microsoft’s portal
N is for Napster, which made record companies mortal
O is for Office, for presenting and writing
P is for Playstation, for gaming that’s exciting
Q is for Quicktime, used for videos large and small
R is for RSS, syndicating to us all
S is for Second Life, the 3D metaverse
T is tagging, creating folksonomies of verse
U is for USB, the universal connection
V is for Vista, Microsoft’s OS correction
W is for Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia
X is for XP, the standard OS selection
Y is for YouTube, of online video fame
Z is for Zuma, a free silly game.
Now that you’ve relearned your ABCs, next time won’t you sing with me?
Happy naptimes, future digerati.
