Reference

Acronym Geek m.acronymgeek.com Look up acronyms. Easy to use and returns a lot of results for business and organizational acronyms. But for a service with ‘Geek’ in its name, it seems to be missing most computer related acronyms. It didn’t have SAN – “Storage Area Network”, SAS – “Software As Service” or AJAX – “Asynchronous JavaScript and XML”!. For tech acronyms, I prefer m.all-acronyms.com
