Ransomware is a subset of malware in which the data on a victim's computer is locked, typically by encryption, and payment is demanded before the ransomed data is decrypted and access returned to the victim. The motive for ransomware attacks is nearly always monetary, and unlike other types of attacks, the victim is usually notified that an exploit has occurred and is given instructions for how to recover from the attack. Payment is often demanded in a virtual currency, such as bitcoin, so that the cybercriminal's identity isn't known.

modular smartphone is a smartphone made using different components that can be independently upgraded or replaced in a modular design.

Convergence is the coming together of two different entities, and in the contexts of computing and technology, is the integration of two or more different technologies in a single device or system. A good example is the convergence of communication and imaging technologies on a mobile device designed to make calls and take pictures - two unrelated technologies that converge on a single device.

Technically, a speaker capable of anything beyond just emitting sound can be labelled as ‘smart’. So the fact wireless speakers feature Bluetooth, NFC, speakerphone abilities and can be controlled by apps already make them smart speakers. What you can do with a smart speaker depends largely on which AI your speaker has inside it - Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri work in different ways and work with different apps and services – and the extent of your smart home. Alexa and Google Assistant both work with the big ones: Spotify Connect (you'll need a Premium account to voice-control streaming), TuneIn Radio, Philips Hue, Nest, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT (If This Then That), Kayak and, naturally, Domino’s Pizza.

A massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) refers to videogames that allow a large number of players to participate simultaneously over an internet connection. These games usually take place in a shared world that the gamer can access after purchasing or installing the game software. The explosive growth in MMOGs has prompted many game designers to build online multiplayer modes into many traditionally single-player games.

A method of wireless data transfer called NFC (Near field communication) that detects and then enables technology in close proximity to communicate without the need for an internet connection. It's easy, fast and works automagically.

Transactional data is information recorded from transactions and can be financial or work-related. Retailers capturing information on customers purchasing habits have valuable transactional data which allows them to cater to the whims of their customers. Transactional data describes an internal or external event which takes place as the organization conducts business and can be financial, logistical or any business-related process involving activities such as purchases, requests, insurance claims, deposits, withdraws, etc. 

Net neutrality quite simply describes a set of regulations that prevent internet providers (UK examples being Virgin, BT, Sky and Plusnet) from throttling internet speeds to certain services such as Netflix or BBC iPlayer. Currently when you browse the internet
