Mash-up - a.k.a web mapping - location-based advertising
Advertisements that are matched to your physical location. For instance, if you're a teenager and you're driving by the local mall, your cell phone may suddenly ring to notify you that there is markdown on sweaters, discounted just moments ago in a brand-name department store. That's a location-based ad.
There is a lot of marketing hype surrounding this scenario, but the infrastructure for this kind of technology is in fact rolling out in Europe, Asia, and parts of the United States.
Merchant services - Outsourced payment-processing services, usually for credit, debit, and ATM card transactions. Merchant services vendors may also handle check guarantees or e-payment processes for e-commerce sites. Payments are processed either through point-of-sale terminals, electronic cash registers, stand-alone PCs, LAN systems, or directly on the Internet. Generally, in exchange for a fee, the vendor will handle authorizations and deposits and will give the merchant a consolidated monthly billing statement. You must be cautious about choosing a company for merchant services because many of them are notorious for sending spam. That's less of an issue when you apply for a merchant account, since you do that through your bank.
Meta tag - An HTML tag that contains information about a Web page. Some search engines, such as AltaVista, use spiders that index Web pages based on meta tags. So, in theory, an HTML or Web page author can control how a site is indexed by search engines and how and when it will be called up during a user's search. Within the meta tag, a keyword tag defines the primary keywords of a Web page. The meta tag can also specify an HTTP or URL address for the page to jump to after a certain amount of time (this is known as client pull). So, a Web page author can control the amount of time a Web page is up on the screen, as well as where the browser will go next.
Mozilla - Mozilla is a free, cross-platform open source Web browser and application framework. The Mozilla Suite is available for many Operating Systems and includes a Web browser, mail and news reader, HTML editor and an IRC client. Mozilla comprises the Gecko rendering engine which is also used in other browser products such as Mozilla Firefox, a cross-platform browser and Camino, a web browser for Mac OS X. Mozilla Thunderbird is a cross-platform mail and news reader.
MySQL - MySQL (pronounced "My-Ess-Kew-El") is a free, open source database, commonly employed with most of the popular server-side scripting languages including PHP, JSP, and ASP.
