When the fuel in a vehicle hits the inside of the tank hard enough to shake it, nearly always cause by making sudden, unplanned turns. Tank slapping is a symptom of bad driving.

Many cars use special baffles to help reduce this.

Can also include the rider's legs on a motorcycle.
Leaving the last bad corner on Snake Pass I missed the apex and over corrected. When the tank started slapping I thought I was a dead man.

The creators of the BIOS system most computers are based around. Unfortunately arrogant enough to publish their BIOS code in a context akin to saying, "Look, this is how it's done. If you do it in a similar way we'll know where you got it from."

Phoenix Technologies where the first to successfully cheat the challenge; one team of scientists simply worked directly on the IBM BIOS and made an exhaustive table of commands and responses, another team who had no knowledge of IBMs existing code were given the table to write a new BIOS.

This is how IBM lost their monopoly on PC design, how the first buyers of Phoenix BIOS, Compaq placed themselves on the market, and generally a nice example of David and Goliath.
The IBM BIOS standard becoming ripped off has both advanced compatibility and held back the market at once, but at least it's basically open-source.

The name of a boutique in Los Angeles that became so infamous that it became a dictionary word, although I've yet to find it in a dictionary.

A book by Bret Easton Ellis about Victor, a delsuional youth who can't work what's going on or where he is. Essentially a made up world of glamor. The title is based around the idea of fake becoming reality, a bit like MTV. Naturally Victor's been on MTV, trouble is he doesn't seem to know when he's on it.

Awesome. Cryptic. Has been called the book of the 90s.
Violent, poetic social commentary from the writer of American Psycho.

One of the only computer builders to make cool looking systems. Even pricier than Mac and occasionaly the same system can be built by selecting a cheaper model and adding the extra stuff as options, but still totaling less.

Stunning cases and the first builder to offer liquid cooling on desktops or replacable graphics cards in laptops. They even respray mice and keyboards to match their cases.

Oh yeah, the coolest thing; the eyes on them change color to let you know the battery status. Awesome.
He bought an Alienware laptop for the lan party and all the jealous 1337 nerds shunned him like a Mac user.

You can always buy a cheap one and put a really high-end graphics card in later.
