snorage
 n.Note: A derogatory play off of the word “storage,” referring to digital data storage devices. «Such a bidding war brings some unaccustomed excitement to what has been referred to as the “snorage” market. It also reflects the growing demand for storage services and the particular value placed on Data Domain’s “deduplication” expertise, which saves space by eliminating the enormous amount of a company’s duplicate data.» —“China hands HP a corporate quandary” by Andrew S. Ross SFGate (San Francisco, California) June 8, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
