Popsockets at McDonald's - I'm shocked

I would not have thought that this might happen but it has: For the first time in my life I have come across an English word at a McDonald’s in Germany that I don’t know. And yet here it is: popsockets

I saw it today at the McDonald’s of my choice.

I help out a middle school English teacher in Lahore, Pakistan and one of her students used this word in an essay and the teacher too was baffled. Kids today!

I’ve recently read that more than 4000 words are added each year to the OED each year. Maybe popsocket was added in 2018?

PopSockets® is a registered trademark. I wonder if that affects whether it is added to dictionaries?

I guess it will fall into the same category as other brand names that have been added to dictionaries such as Twitter, Google, Facebook and Rollerblade.

Barnett collaborated with Speck Design for his iPhone case plan and went to Kickstarter to share his thought in order to get reserves. This thought was at last rejected and PopSockets were planned without the case.

Barnett took the accordion configuration, took out the case, added a tacky gel cushion, and presto! PopSockets were conceived. You could now fold your earphones over its took plan or position it to go about as a kickstand on your cellphone.

and now people are buying Blank popsockets bulk :laughing: :laughing:
