Trending – completely inane, even in windows 8


Trend is a noun.  It means “A general direction in which something is developing or changing”.  You can’t add “ing” to the end of a noun and pretend it’s a verb.  So the non-word “trending” is just that; a non-word.  Now Microsoft is computering this in Windows 8, with a “trending” tile on the start screen (see how stupid it is adding “ing” to a noun?)
