What is “disruptive” technology?

Vinod Khosla, a Forbes billionaire and very successful venture capitalist, says he looks for “disruptive” companies. This is probably a good description of the kind of company most VCs seek.  “Disruptive” implies game-changing.  A disruptive product solves a problem in a completely different way than any other solution.  Or it may solve a problem that has not been solved.  Disruptive products usually have annual revenue potential in excess of $100 Million, or more, within five years.
