Talk:gig

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I remember a time when I yearned for: if we had a spare $1,000.00 it was possible to "get a gig" - meaning a 1 gigabyte hard drive. Technology improved so fast that I don't know if that sense of "gig" ever entered the lexicon. --Stranger 23:01, 30 August 2005 (UTC) According to another on-line dictionary, "gig" can be short for gigabyte. It doesn't specify hard drive, DRAM, or what.—This unsigned comment was added by 206.53.197.12 (talk) at 00:19, 13 October 2007.
