Upgraded.

 An exchange I overheard between some girls at the homeschooling co-op that inventionsleeps is teaching at.  I think they were about 9 years old.  I just thought it was a funny example of how technology has changed the vernacular.

"We're going out to dinner tonight because my dad got promoted!"
"What's "promoted" mean?"
"It means.........he got...........UPGRADED."
"Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!"

I confess, I have come to think of birthdays as "leveling up". Upgraded is a marvelous way to look at a promotion. Language usage is a delightful thing.
