Here are meanings to some technical acroyms you need to know as you dive through your journey in tech…
PDF stands for “Portable Document Format”. Essentially, the format is used when you need to save files that cannot be modified but still need to be easily shared and printed. Today most devices have a version of Adobe Reader or can open a PDF in an Internet Browser.
HDMI means “High-Definition Multimedia Interface”, a standard for simultaneously transmitting digital video and audio from a source, such as a computer or TV cable box, to a computer monitor, TV or projector.
JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. The JPEG file type is one of the world’s most widely used image file formats.

A hard drive or hard disk drive (HDD) is a type of data storage device that is used in laptops and desktop computers. An HDD is a “non-volatile” storage drive, which means it can retain the stored data even when no power is supplied to the device
A solid-state drive (SSD) is a new generation of storage device used in computers. SSDs store data using flash-based memory, which is much faster than the traditional hard disks they’ve come to replace.
