In terms of websites relates to the ability of a user using assistive technology for magnification to screen reading or the use of other technology such as captions to best use a website. There are standards set for accessibility by the W3C, an international standards organization for the Internet. There is also Section 508 standards for US government sites and others looking to be most accommodating to users with disabilities.
The amount of information that a connection to the Internet can process at any one time. You can think of bandwidth as the size of a pipe. If you have a small pipe, less water can pass through. If you have a larger diameter pipe, than more water gets through. If you have more bandwidth (a faster Internet connection) than more data gets through and the inverse is also true.
DSL and Cable have relatively large pipes where dial-up is a very small pipe. The bandwidth for a large site might be equivalent to a water main.
ChatMust be enabled before it may be used. Select circles that can see when you're online by clicking the drop-down arrow next to "Chat" and select "Circles." Google+ chat list will automatically show people you've chosen to chat with in other Google services (iGoogle, Gmail, etc.) If someone is not already a contact, you may invite them to chat in the Chat search box.

Contact Relationship Management DatabaseA Contact Relationship Management Database is designed for tracking information and clients and others that organizations interact with. CRM databases are designed to show the relationships between contacts, their organizations and the actions that they take. For example, one might buy widgets and attend trainings on how to use their new widgets. This help you sell more of these things or other projects.
Content Management System (CMS)
A CMS is a website that uses a database to deliver content to viewers. CMSs make it possible to easily to change content on a page without having to make changes to the code of the page. A good CMS will also make it so that you can change the content independently of how that content is displayed.
Email Service Provider (ESP)Services like Constant Contact that help you do mass emailing. These services will help you follow the Can SPAM law, maintain your list, and design emails that will work for your email recipients.
Extended CirclesExtended Circles include the circles that you are in as well as those in circles related to yours. Your extended circles are like your circles' circles.
For example, Heather is in one of your circles, and Mitch is in one of Heather's circles. You are not connected with Mitch and he's not in any of your circles. If Heather chooses to have Mitch visible on her profile, and you choose to share with your extended circles, it is possible for your content to appear in both Heather and Mitch's streams. You can not see a complete list of the people included in your extended circles because of permissions and frequent changes. Google+ uses your extended circles to generate recommendations for connections.
Fields are added to content types to provide users of the site the ability to enter specific content for each type of content.
In Drupal 6.0 The CCK module is used for fields. In Drupal 7 this is part of Drupal core.
Google+ BarAppears at the top of Google services, your connection to Google+. Allows users to share what's on their mind, view notifications, access their profile, and provides instant access to a variety of other Google products and services. For example, to get to Google+, click +[yourfirstname]. You may also sign into multiple accounts at once and switch between accounts through this bar. Here, you will see your full name or email address and a photo or avatar, allowing your to identify which account(s) you are signed in to.
Hard DriveThe Hard Drive or Hard Disk Drive is the primary long term storage for most computers. When you start your computer the information needed to open Windows or another operating system is loaded from the hard drive. Software like Word or QuickBooks as well as your files are also saved on the hard drive.
Content added to a database so that it can be easily found when it is searched for. Windows indexes files so that when you search for the file your system can quickly produce the results. Google and other search engines index websites so that web users can rapidly search their databases of websites for the information they are looking for.
IndexingWhen files are added to the computer their key contents like their file name, tags , other attributes and in some cases their content are added to an index. It is far quicker to search an index of the information than it is to search each file when you want to find information. Windows Vista was the first Windows operating system to include full indexing of files and that is why searching for information in Vista is so much faster. Google and other search engines work on the same principal but on a broader scale for the Internet. A person adds content to their website and then Google is always looking, using software called bots, and when it finds new content it adds it to its index. Once again it is significantly faster to search an index than to search every word of the file. Imagine if Google did not use indexes and each time you wanted to find something every page on the Internet had to be searched - it would take weeks.
Instant UploadTool that allows users to instantly upload photos as soon as they are taken from their mobile devices onto the internet.

Open SourceRefers to software that makes it code open to the public. Generally open source projects are free and have many people contributing to them. Some of the popular open source projects are becoming well known. For example OpenOffice.org Linux and Drupal (the platform that this site is created in.)You can also go to the The Open Source Initiative website.
Operating SystemAn operating system is an application like Windows or Mac OS which allows the user to access the computer's functions.

Your full name and gender are the only information that is required on your profile. You may also edit any information at any time. You can choose visibility settings for specific profile sections, allow people to contact your directly via your profile, display people in your circles on your profile, and choose whether your profile is indexed by search engines. The Posts Tab in your profile organizes all the posts shared by the profile owner.
A bar code in the shape of a square that holds more information than the bar codes we see at the grocery store. Using the camera on a phone one can scan the code and be directed to something on the Internet, to call a number, or to find a place on a map using a smart phone.
Another popular use of QR codes is to place them on business cards and link to your business card data.
The QR code on the right is an example and goes to mobile.denverdataman.com
RouterA device used to share an Internet connection with other computers. Often a router will also have a firewall included in it as well as other tools for managing and securing an Internet connection.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a tool that helps you get current information from a website without having to actually visit the website. Each time the site is updated with a new posting, you will receive notification and details of the new information through your RSS subscriptions, which can be sent via email or sent to a personalized RSS page/reader. For example, without RSS, you would need to visit your favorite blog every few days to check to see if any new blog entries have been posted. With RSS, you will be notified through RSS emails or through your RSS site each time the blog is updated. It’s efficient and convenient.
RSS consists of a few components. The first is the feed which is created by the website owner. Website owners add feeds to their site and then advertise them with subscribe links or this icon.
The person gathering or aggregating the feed needs a reader or aggregator to collect the feeds. I like Google Reader and the RSS Reader in Outlook 2007/2010. You can watch this great Common Craft video to see RSS illustrated.
