Tech words redefine Oxford dictionary

Author: JT Smith

From an AP item posted at CNET News.com: "The technology bubble may have burst on the world's trading floors, but the
industry's stock is still rising in the "Concise Oxford Dictionary."

The latest revision of the dictionary, launched Thursday by Oxford University Press, has such
high-tech words as "MP3" for the music file, "e-book," for a paperless book and "i-Mode" for
Japan's wireless Internet service."
