Technology terms that aren't borrowed?


While reading this post:, which talks about the original meaning of the word 'troll', I was reminded again that so many words in the computer/technology world are borrowed from the outside world. Like 'computer', 'monitor', 'printer', 'mouse', 'keyboard', 'tablet'

Even 'Internet' could be said to be 'inter-network' - both of which were around before the Internet.

How many 'tech' words can you think of that aren't borrowed?Not including trademarks, like 'google'. The only one that comes to mind right now is 'byte', although I know there must be others.
