KILLER APPLICATION: A computer program that is so incredibly useful, popular, and profitable that the company responsible for development achieves enormous growth in a relatively short time period. Several computer companies developed killer applications during the 1980s and 1990s, which contributed greatly to the computer revolution. The Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program was among the first, and perhaps most noted, killer applications. This program motivated millions of businesses and consumers in the early 1980ds to purchase personal computers.

KINKED-DEMAND CURVE: A demand curve with two distinct segments with different elasticities that join to form a kink. The primary use of the kinked-demand curve is to explain price rigidity in oligopoly. The two segments are: (1) a relatively more elastic segment for price increases and (2) a relatively less elastic segment for price decreases. The relative elasticities of these two segments is directly based on the interdependent decision-making of oligopolistic firms.
