  • Do you speak technob*ll*cks?

    Then I read the rest

    The incorrect spelling of 'conectivity' didn't bother you, did it?

    There's more wrong with that sentence too.

      Indeed, but is it a sentence?

      I suspect that Aria scraped it off some marketing website.

      That sort of phrase comes out of "brainstorming" sessions in marketing.

        Yup we certainly don't write all the product descriptions from scratch, most of them are from manufacturer sites. Most likely it's a simple translation issue.

          And marketing people aren't human anyway so can't tell if it is wrong, nor do they care!

            Now now. That's racism.

                When we allowed "science" to slide from a noun to also being used as a verb we lost the right to protest at these language abuses...
