“P” that came in our life last decade
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.
A 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.

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.
