The worst is when I'm recording something and people say I am "taping". Very irritating.
They were probably referring to the content not the medium. As in, "Casablanca is a classic film." I use film interchangeably with movie. I call the physical item of a VHS tape a tape and a DVD a DVD. However, I still use the word film.
Is it proper to say "typing" anymore or what term should be used?
