Samsung Epix: A Naming Blunder of Epic Proportions?


Introducing the new Samsung Epix smart phone with a whopping…….wait for it……..2-megapixel camera!!! Guys, if you’re gonna include the term “pix” in your phone name it’s gotta have more-than-ordinary picture capabilities. My Blackberry Curve, hardly a substitute for a point and shoot, has 2-megapixels. And, while I’ve only read a few reviews of the phone (generally good, but still mixed), Epix is a really hard name to live up to. At least for now I’ll trust that the phone is as grand as its name implies. Overpromising: one of the biggest naming and branding mistakes.


Abbott's new line of biowearables takes fitness tracking further by calculating glucose, lactate, and even alcohol in the blood. But does the name add up?
Car Thing, Spotify’s entry into the world of smart devices, has gotten mixed reviews. The product may be wow or wanting, but how's the name?
The military uses them. Apple uses them. Pretty much any kid with a walkie-talkie uses them.
