When did Programs become Apps
#1
I think I may have asked this question before but everyone is too lazy to respond with their piece of mind...

When and WHY did a "Program" become and "App"?

PROGRAM (7-characters) is shorter than an APPLICATION (11-characters) so WHY do we all drool over Applications?
Is it because APP is shorter than PROG in this world of utterly lazy hand-me-downs?

Even Microsoft has got onto the bandwagon by changing PROGRAMS to APPLICATIONS.

I would LOVE to know who decided all this crap.

I HATE "apps" - it reminds of all those utterly stupid programs out there that lazy people now depend on to check their heart-rate and whether they are sexually attractive on their phones.
