Never much understood "bouncing rubble" English changes like that, or "internet"->"cloud", "preteen"->"tween", etc. Can't tell if the trend is accelerating or it's just me getting old.

Around every two years they come up with something new, give or take a year depending on the topic. In general, I got the impression that once I've finally got used to using a certain term, it's no longer (politically or otherwise) correct, e.g. "STD" => "STI" ("disease" is obviously a bad bad word - unless you want to sell useless drugs for made-up diseases). It happens all the time.
