a.k.a. plain vanilla

In tech talk, it means the standard version of a hardware device or software program, with no extra bells-and-whistles. It is commonly used to describe something plain, as in, "The days of the plain-vanilla car radio are over, now that they've come out with a color TV, a VCR, and Nintendo for backseat passengers."
