It's certainly nothing new.

My father was upset at "like" v "as"
One of his friends was upset at "utilize" v "use"
A friend gets very upset with traffic reports at "to upright" v "to right"

I'm still tilting at 1,024,000 as a "megabyte".

I don't mind the creation of new words.  For example, "hassle" is fairly
recent.  But, let's try to avoid misuse of the words that we have.
