When will companies realize that naming their entire product lines using an externally random* string of numbers and letters is not a good idea.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, just look at printers (or anything!)

*externally random is a term that I made up. It refers to something that seems to make no sense from an outside perspective. A good and annoyingly frequent example is using acronyms without defining what they refer to first. these acronyms *have* a meaning but to the outside observer they are as good as random. in short: not effective.
