Palabras de Tecnología - Spanish Technology Vocabulary

While many hi tech words are adapted only slightly for Spanish, like the word computadora, others like cibernauta are completely different.

Regardless of how funny some may sound...learn the words below and you'll impress your latino or Spaniard friends with your hi tech jargon.
