    OT: Why is everything an "app" today? One should think the term "application" has been purged from the English language.

    We've been saying "app" since the 80s. It really took over about 15 years ago, when the retail mainstream started asking about every new piece of hardware in terms of its "killer apps" (again, an 80s tech magazine phrase). Apple's store for iPhone was immediately called the App Store because the abbreviation was common, and that was nearly 10 years ago.

    I'm not sure why you see it as a new development.

    Just forgot to put it on a postcard when sending the cards.

    Sorry, my bad.

    More OT:
    We must've been living in different versions of the 80s. It's true that the term "killer application" was coined in 1987 and that Bill Gates (of all people) used "killer app" back when the Microsoft Anti-trust hearings were conducted. But I'm not asking about the origin of "killer app" or "app". I'm asking why everything now has to be referred to as "app".

    From where I stand the term came into general use when Apple insisted on calling those small programs with limited functionality for their smartphone "apps" (probably they did so for other reasons as well). Apparently, this means we all have to use it now (and honestly, people are free to say whatever they want). Nevertheless, the term "app" is slang, and it just irks me, when slang gets elevated to the status of a proper noun, and a technical one at that. Yeah, I'm weird that way. And what's wrong with using "application" in written text, anyway?
    End OT (and no more on this matter from me)

    I've always used 'app' for programs on pocket devices, 'application' for more stationary things, which is why I think something like the Surface can have apps or applications depending on if they're being launched in metro and are designed around touch interaction.

    Re: MSI releases statement regarding GeForce GTX 1000 review cards

    I don't recall anyone using "app" in this sense in the 1980s. Maybe Apple users did, but that was never a mainstream expression. It's far more recent than that.
