companion : Java Glossary


generic name for a small hand-held device that integrates many special purpose computer functions, e.g. pedestrian’s companion. The term can also be more generally used for a portable personal computer interface as in surgeon’s companion that may be worn or embedded. The etymology comes from Clifford Simak’s tale about a man who befriended an alien plant and in return received a companion as a gift.
