@krisi before they call it Sunsight or something equqally creative

Sunshight, maybe? 

Our employer has recently embraced a new accounting system called Syteline, the most overblown, complicated, and useless piece of crap I've ever been forced to use.  We in engineering refer to it as " Shyteline ".

Note to Marketeers - do not use the word "Site" or Sight" in your new ultra-creative product name - too many ways for it to be ridiculed.

True, it too a while for teh Agilent' name to be recognized...but it was HP doing the recognition...and at least it sounded like a technology company...who came up with Keysight???

Agilent was not 'well recogmized' when they split from HP either.  The principles of the company and product strength are what made Agilent well recognized.  It looks like they are taking the same approach with the latest split.  I agree the chosen name is not the most appealing.

Strange move...they dillute dthe brand name to zero...from well respected HP to well recognized Agilent to no name Keysight...maybe they are priming themselves for aquisition by China Inc

I understand why the changed the name, but I think they could have gotten something better. Agilent was a good name and they had a strong brand. If I saw "Keysight Technologies" written on my multimeter I would think it was made by some no name Chinese company.
