Avatar(from the English. avatar - impersonation) - the image that the user chooses as his avatar. It is mainly used in web forums, blogs and instant messaging (IM).

Account(zharg., from the English. account) - an account on the Internet that identifies the user and the services provided to him.

Alphaorbeta(English alpha, beta - about a software product) - usually the addition in the form of a Greek letter means that this version of the software (program, operating system,firmware) is test and inconclusive, i.e. The application will be unstable. The higher the letter in alphabetical order, the closer the version to the final one. For example, the beta version is later than the alpha version.

Andryusha, bucket, bucket, green robot Attached Image- the slang name of the Android operating system.

Apat(from English up - up) - to raise the topic in the list, by publishing messages that do not carry a semantic load, for example: "really nobody knows?" or "an!" Also used the Russian version of "up". Lifting the topic is a violationforum rules(paragraph 4.13). In each section of the forum, topics are displayed page by page and sorted by the date the last message was written (with the exception of the topics fixed by moderators, they are always on top). Members typically read topics on the front pages. Therefore, some are raising the topic in order to increase attention to the issue under discussion.

Upgrade(Eng. upgrade) - improvement, modernization.

Update(English update) - update.

Watermelon(talk from English browser) -internet browser.

hardware acceleration- execution of a program or decoding of a multimedia stream in the optimal mode for this hardware configuration. A program optimized for one hardware configuration will not run optimally on another, i.e. will be executed on software acceleration.
Modern central (computational) processors in computers, including pocket computers (smartphones), can cope with any task from adding two numbers to the capabilities of artificial intelligence. However, the versatility of the CPU leads to the fact that it performs some tasks better and some worse. Any processor is always better at coping with the task for which it is intended. Modern central processors include a lot of diversified blocks. If the processor processes the data stream using software acceleration, then arbitrary blocks are involved. When tasks are performed on those blocks for which they are intended, they say that the task is performed on hardware acceleration, which is several times faster than software.

Attach(English attachment) - file attached to a message or letter.

Outlineers(eng. outliners) or else this class of tools is called “free-form database” - “free-form database”, i.e. free from format and positional restrictions. It sounds scary, but in fact it is difficult to come up with something simpler and more useful - in fact, the outliner is an analogue of the mechanism for managing multiple hierarchical file systems, each of which is stored in one physical file. To this we add the “insensitivity” of a good autliner to the formats of information fragments hidden in it (these can be HTML and rtf fragments, images, etc.) and the “file non-inflation” property, i.e. the presentation’s compactness (in fact such a sharp “landing” from general ideas to hard requirements of reality is not a whim - some outliner implementations, for example, store one hierarchy in an rtf-format file, characterized by extremely inefficient representation of binary data, which simultaneously inflates the file and leads to Coy "extravagance" of the program, bringing all its advantages to zero).

Battery- short for battery, rechargeable battery, source of electrical energy.

AFAIK(English, abbr. from AFAIK - as far as I know) - as far as I know, as far as I know.

Ad-hoc- decentralized computer network. This is a computer-to-computer network where there are no controls, such as a server. In networks of this type, all devices connected to the network are equal.

Adb(Abbr., from the English. Android Debug Bridge) - a console application for the PC, which is used to debug Android devices, including emulators. Works on the principle of client-server. When you first start ADB with any command, a server is created as a system service (daemon) that will listen on all commands sent to port 5037. For more information about how ADB works, seehere

ADSL(abbr., from the English. Asymmetric digital subscriber line) - asymmetric digital subscriber line) - technology of broadband (high-speed) access to the Internet through existing telephone lines. It requires the user to add an additional ADSL modem to the network, from the company providing telephone services, to upgrade the PBX. In order to allow simultaneous use of telephone conversations and Internet access, an additional filter is required in the telephone network (splitter). A distinctive feature of this technology is the low speed of the outgoing channel, an order of magnitude less than the speed of the incoming channel.

AS, AS- ActiveSync. A program for synchronizing mobile devices running the Windows Mobile operating system with a personal computer.

A-GPS(Assisted GPS) is a function used to speed up positioning (both during a cold start and a hot start). For A-GPS operation, hardware support is required (a special chip). A-GPS speeds up positioning in two ways. First, by downloading satellite position data (ephemeris) from the Internet (this can happen eitherWi-Fiso throughMobile Internet). The second, determining the location with an accuracy of 2 km to 20 m at the base stations of the cellular operator (measuring the distance to the stations by the signal level). For the performance of the second method, it is required that the device support the work in cellular networks and be connected to any network. For the first method to work, in addition, an active connection to the Internet is required. In most cases, A-GPS is used in conjunction withGPS, but there are devices in which only A-GPS is integrated, the positioning accuracy is greatly reduced.

AMOLED(eng., abbr. from active matrix organic light-emmiting diod) is a technology for the production of electronic devices for displaying graphical information in which each point of the image (pixel) is formed using organic light-emitting diodes. Unlike technologyLCD, AMOLED eliminates the use of screen backlighting, because own luminosity of the diodes is sufficient for most cases of domestic use. Therefore, AMOLED has a higher image contrast (several orders of magnitude higher) thanLCD, as well as the almost perfect brightness of black (almost zero).

AOSP(English, abbr. from the Android open source project) - an open source project of the Android operating system. The project allows anyone to get the Android code in its original form. Google, as the developer of the operating system, puts all Android sources into AOSP, including the kernel, operating system and applications. The operating system sources are needed to createfirmwaredevices, while the drivers themselves write drivers. Project sitesource.android.com

APN(eng., abbr. from Access point name - access point name) - identifier of a cellular mobile network that allows a subscriber to access data services (forMobile Internetand MMS). APN settings for each mobile operator has its own.

Wipeorwipe(from the English. Wipe - wash, sweep) - this is cleaning. The concept used in the Android operating system.To whip(to make a wipe) means to perform a wipe. Most often, when people talk about wipe, they mean a full wipe (ie, wipe data / factory reset - reset to factory settings, full analog hard reset in Windows Mobile), when performing this action, the data and cache logical partitions are completely cleared on the device’s built-in storage device, the “.android_secure” folder and ext partition on the memory card (if any), i.e. All user data is deleted and the settings are reset to the factory state, only information on the memory card will remain.
Important note. If you changed the system data (the contents of the system logical partition), i.e. something was replaced in the operating system (for example, they installed the driver, got superuser rights), performed an update, or deleted the system files, such data will not be restored.

Varez (from the English. warez - slang version of "wares", an abbreviated plural of "software" - software) is a commercial program distributed free of charge by illegal means without the permission of the author. Be sure to contain changes or additions to use it for free.

Waffle - establish connection by Wi-Fi .

Wafer - slang name Wi-Fi .

Fan - slang name of the Android Wear operating system.

Weight (colloquy) - the amount of data / information on the drive, measured in byte Oh.

Winda - the slang name of the Windows operating system.

Vidyuha - video card or graphic card.

Screw , winch (English Winchester) - short for "Winchester", the same as HDD .

Vir - colloquial abbreviation from computer virus.

Hang - fall into the unresponsive state (of a computer or operating system), i.e. a state in which the program does not respond to user commands.

WCDMA (English, abbr. from Wideband code division multiple access) - most often used as a generic name for standards UMTS and HSPA i.e. WCDMA is synonymous with high-speed Internet access. Although in fact, WCDMA is not a data transmission standard, but a technology of broadband code division multiple access, on the basis of which all high-speed data transmission standards are built ( EV-DO , UMTS , HSPA , LTE ).

Wi-Fi , Wi-Fi , Wi-Fi (English, abbr. from wireless fidelity - literally wireless accuracy) - a wireless communication standard designed to organize wireless local area networks and transmit data wirelessly. A mid-range wireless channel, usually one transceiver, allows you to cover an apartment or office. Wi-Fi operation is carried out over the radio channel at 2.4, 5 GHz frequencies and is defined by the IEEE 802.11 standard.
IEEE 802.11 standard specifications
IEEE 802.11a
IEEE 802.11b
IEEE 802.11d
IEEE 802.11e
IEEE 802.11f
IEEE 802.11g
IEEE 802.11h
IEEE 802.11i
IEEE 802.11j
IEEE 802.11n
IEEE 802.11ac
Devices that support the IEEE 802.11a standard work in the 5 GHz frequency band and provide a bit rate of up to 54 Mbps.
Now the most common 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n.
Devices with IEEE 802.11b support operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band and provide bit rates up to 11 Mbps. Devices with IEEE 802.11g support operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band and provide a bit rate of up to 54 Mbps. Devices that support the 802.11 Super g standard are capable of providing bit rates up to 108 Mbps. Devices supporting the 802.11n standard allow operation in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands (some devices support simultaneous operation in two bands), provide a bit rate up to 600 Mbit / s, support multi-antenna technologies (MIMO), new coding and modulation methods. In fact, most devices to which manufacturers assign support for the 802.11n standard only partially support its specifications; therefore, such devices ensure a bit rate of no more than 300 (less often 450) Mbps; there are no multi-antenna systems in mobile devices, and therefore MIMO is not supported, so the maximum Wi-Fi connection speed is even lower. Devices with the standard 802.11ac are the most modern solution, allow you to work in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands (some devices support simultaneous operation in two bands), and provide a bit rate of up to 1300 Mbps.
Remark 1 . In order for the channel to transmit at the indicated speeds, both devices must maintain the required standard.
Remark 2 . The user data transfer rate is usually 2-4 times lower than the bit rate specified in the device characteristics. With the deterioration of the environment and noise conditions, the user data transfer rate decreases even more. Part of the bandwidth is allocated for service needs, even in ideal conditions, the user data transfer rate cannot exceed 98% of the bit rate at which the devices operate.
Remark 3 . The specified maximum bit rate in the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards is achieved only when using multi-antenna systems on both devices involved in data exchange.

The standards define the typical range of wireless devices. For 802.11g indoor devices:
• 30–40 meters at a speed of 54 Mbps;
• 80–100 meters at a speed of 1 Mbps.

• 150–200 meters at a speed of 54 Mbps;
• 400–500 meters at a speed of 1 Mbps.

WiMAX (eng., abbr. from Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a telecommunications technology designed to provide universal wireless communications over long distances. Combines the advantages of technology Wi-FI and technology data transmission in mobile cellular networks. WiMAX is a network of larger scale, such as the scale of a city, the range of a WiMAX transmitter reaches 50 km. WiMAX allows you to maintain connection and transfer data even when the user moves with great speed. One WiMAX transmitter provides a larger connection (rather than Wi-FI ) the number of users without losing speed. In addition to Internet access, WiMAX can be used for high-quality voice and video communications, broadcasting radio stations and television.

WP (English, abbr. from windows phone) - an operating system for mobile devices, developed by Microsoft. Often confused with Windows Mobile, even though these operating systems have the same roots, they are completely different and not compatible with each other.

CDMA-OneorIS-95(Eng., Abbr. from Interim Standard 95) is a standard for digital mobile cellular communications, code-division multiplexing. Allows you to transmit speech and data in digital form over the wireless channel. In the first revisions of the standard, the maximum theoretical data transfer rate was 14.4 kbit / s, in the last one the speed rose to 115.2 kbit / s. Is the predecessor of the familyCDMA-2000.

Is an evolution of the standardCDMA2000 1xRTT, doubles the channel capacity (data transfer rate) of each subscriber and the maximum possible number of subscribers. It uses both technology of code division of channels, and technology of temporary division of channels. Allows you to transfer data with a maximum theoretical speed of 3.2 Mbps, in practice, the speed is 500-1000 kbit / s.

SSD(English, abbr. from a solid state drive - solid-state drive) - non-volatile information storage device without moving mechanical parts. Considered as a replacement for hard drives on personal computers. It is necessary to distinguish solid-state drives based on the use of volatile (RAM SSD) and non-volatile (NAND or Flash SSD) memory. Subject on our forumSSD - flash-based drives.
Architecture and operation

These drives, built on the use of volatile memory (the same as used in the RAM of a personal computer) are characterized by super-fast reading, writing and searching for information. Their main disadvantage is the extremely high cost (from 80 to 800 US dollars per gigabyte). Used mainly to speed up large database management systems and powerful graphic stations. Such drives are usually equipped with batteries to save data when power is lost, and more expensive models have backup and / or online backup systems.

A peculiar kind of such drives is the RIndMA disk — a secondary PC connected to a fast RAM network connection with a software RAM drive. Such a computer is an order of magnitude cheaper than specialized solutions, but is not recommended for use in data-critical applications.


Drives built on the use of non-volatile memory (NAND SSD), appeared relatively recently, but due to the much lower cost (from $ 2 [9] per gigabyte) they began a confident market conquest. Until recently, they were significantly inferior to traditional drives in reading and writing, but compensated for this (especially when reading) with a high search speed of information (comparable to the speed of RAM). Now, Flash solid-state drives are being produced with read and write speeds comparable to traditional ones, and models have been developed that significantly exceed them. They are characterized by relatively small size and low power consumption. They have already almost completely conquered the mid-level database accelerator market and are starting to push traditional disks in mobile applications.

Onscreen sensors in mobile devices are of two types: resistive and capacitive. Resistive sensors allow you to enter with any object, as long as the upper sensor layer on the screen is closed with the lower one. The top layer must be flexible, therefore it is rather soft and scratch-prone, especially when usingcomputer pen. Capacitive sensors have good sensitivity and responsiveness, but work only when you touch it with your finger (as well as other organic objects and special “big” styluses). They are located under the surface of the screen, so when using such sensors, it is possible to cover the device with glass or scratch-resistant plastic. Capacitive sensors are fundamentally less accurate than resistive.
