“P” that came in our life last decade

Alphabet, 3D Albhabet, Letters, Color

The letter and techie with “P” that entered our lives.

The word that came in use last decade starting with P has just popped up!

well, it’s because the word is Pop-up

– this new word has two meanings for the modern age. Anyone who uses the internet will recognize pop-ups as being annoying advertising windows that ‘pop up’ in the corner of your screen when you’re browsing the web. It also describes a whole new shopping phenomenon. Pop-up shops are shops that ‘pop up’ only for a short space of time, often in disused shopping centers and markets and specially designed pop-up shop areas. They can be boutiques selling unique items that are locally produced, or artwork to clothing, food, and drink to books.

pop-up is a graphical user interface ( GUI ) display area, usually a small window, that suddenly appears (“pops up”) in the foreground of the visual interface.

Peak

Yes, mountains are known for literal peaks, but we’re not looking at the mountains now. We’re checking out the peak adventurers in the foreground. This is “metaphorically extended” to mean “being at the height of popularity, use or attention,” according to Merriam-Webster.

Page View

A company’s success could be determined by how many page views they have, which is another way of saying the number of people who have visited their website.

 

Let’s move towards some techie term

Tesla Powerwall

As solar power becomes more and more affordable–it’s cheaper than gas and coal in many parts of the country–the new challenge becomes finding a way for your home to store excess energy and use it when needed. Tesla’s Powerwall, launched in 2015, offers that ability with a high level of sophistication, letting you program your usage to collect energy during off-peak hours, then consume it at peak times. As states begin to implement energy pricing that varies based on time of use–California, Arizona, and Massachusetts already have–that means it will save you even more money while also putting less stress on local power plants. Tesla Powerwall

The Powerwall and Powerpack are rechargeable lithium-ion battery stationary energy storage products manufactured by Tesla, Inc. The Powerwall is intended to be used for home energy storage and stores electricity for solar self-consumption, time of use load shifting, backup power, and off-the-grid use. The larger Powerpack is intended for commercial or electric utility grid use and can be used for peak shaving, load shifting, backup power, demand response, microgrids, renewable power integration, frequency regulation, and voltage control.

 

Four letters. Thousands of devices. Millions of hours. Billions of downloads. One game. You know the rest.

    Important P words.
    Our world has really “progressed” technologically.
    Another P is pollution- that has risen in the past decade.

  11. Those are definitely P’s that didn’t exist in the last decade. Hopefully the pandemic that has gripped the world will pass soon!
