Default French want new words for “smartphone”

Something a little more French

The French always have a problem when it comes to English words entering their language and have been desperately coming up with something to replace that nasty roast-beef eating words which come from the world of tech.

The official journal of the French Republic, the Journal officiel, has suggested "internet clandestin" instead of dark net. It's dubbed a casual gamer "joueur occasionnel" for messieurs and "joueuse occasionnelle" for mesdames. To replace hashtag, it's selected "mot-diese."
