Come again? Test your digital vocabulary. No. 2

You don’t bother speculating on whether the Bitcoin bubble will burst; you already know. Your day begins and ends with ‘OK Google’. You probably talk more to the search engine than you do to your partner. But this vocabulary may come in handy if you want to score a few points while making small talk. At the office they even make sense in terms of the future of work.
