From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   address
  
      1. {e-mail address}.
  
      2. {Internet address}.
  
      3. {MAC address}.
  
      4. An unsigned integer used to select
      one fundamental element of storage, usually known as a {word}
      from a computer's {main memory} or other storage device.   The
      {CPU} outputs addresses on its {address bus} which may be
      connected to an {address decoder}, {cache controller}, {memory
      management unit}, and other devices.
  
      While from a hardware point of view an address is indeed an
      integer most {strongly typed} programming languages disallow
      mixing integers and addresses, and indeed addresses of
      different data types.   This is a fine example for {syntactic
      salt}: the compiler could work without it but makes writing
      bad programs more difficult.
