• The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows devices on a home network to share information with each other.

    It is typically used to store media files (photos, music, videos...) on a central server and allow devices like connected TVs or music palyers to access these media files directly through the network.

  • The part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently.

    This is why paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

  • The bounce rate is the percentage of visitors who leave a web site after viewing a single page.

    This is widely regarded as a bad thing because it may mean that visitors did not find what they were looking for and "bounced" away to another site. They left almost immediately.

    However, this is a broken metric in many cases. For example if you were looking for opening times of a retailer in your city and you found that info right on the homepage of the retailer, you will technically leave the site after a single page view. However it does not mean you did not find what you were looking for.

    Furthermore you may have visited some competing sites in a row, "bouncing" from on e to the next, still finding the exact information (closing times) on each of them in a single page view each.

  • XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language.

    It is a way of organizing text and/or contents with tags. Tags look like this:

    <sometag>some content</sometag>

    Of course, although possible, this is not designed to be read by humans. It is designed to be processed by machines. Typically one program generates an XML document and another one computes it to some further extent.

    And XML document very much looks like an HTML document, except that the tags are different.

    There are actually many different dialects of XML, each for a different purpose. Each of these dialects has its own tags. And even more tags can be added. Hence the "eXtensible" in the name.

    There is an XML dialect for writing web pages. It is called XHTML. It is basically the same thing as HTML except for minor syntaxic differences. For example in HYML you would write <BR> whereas in XML you would write <br />.

    Other XML dialects include RSS and Atom.
