Style Changes at the NYTimes

The Latest in Style - NYTimes.com: "One broad category of changes was the deletion of some aging or outdated technical terms: CD-ROM, floppy disk, Dictaphone, Usenet, newsgroups, VHS, CAD-CAM and I.S.D.N. We have left a few historical relics that might require style guidance if they come up: CB radio, for example, takes no points. Listserv should be capitalized (it’s a trademark) but also generally avoided: say e-mail list instead."
