Web clipping

(v.) Extracting static information from a Web site in order to display the data on a Web-enabled PDA. The idea behind Web clipping is to conserve the PDA's resources by extracting once any static data, such as graphics, logos, photos or even unnecessary text and storing that data on the PDA. The PDA will then make a wireless connection to a Web server in order to retrieve any dynamic content. Web clipping is a technology pioneered by Palm for its Palm VII handheld device.

(n.) An excerpt of data taken from a Web server.
