As it did last year
around this time, the Associated Press is making some tech-term related changes
to its style guide. Hence forth 'e-mail' will be 'email,'
'cell phone' will be 'cellphone' and 'smart phone' will be 'smartphone.' Game-changing? No. But it's interesting to see the language evolve. The terms are no longer merely abbreviations for things like electronic mail or cellular telephone -- they're words unto themselves.
