OK, Max. I admit that I missed your subtle reference to "Startrek TNG." But seriously, how do you pronounce TNG as an abbreviation?

@Junko: So, what exactly does TNG stand for, then? 

TNG = "The Next Generation" as in "Star Trek TNG"

Max, damn it, you are falling back onto the word "smart" again, calling it "the smart choice"

That was deliberate -- it was a joke -- combining Jefe's NG suggestion with the "smart" you loath so much LOL

Hi, Max. So, what exactly does TNG stand for, then? 

And of course, Max, damn it, you are falling back onto the word "smart" again, calling it "the smart choice"!

@Junko: NG won't work. That sounds like No Good!

How about "Bluetooth TNG -- The smart choice!" LOL

Smart is the hype now. We have the examples of the past, remember the e- (when e-mail started the branding of everything with e-everything) years ago, or the i- when the i-pod triggered the i-everything, or the web-everything, etc. Later we could have the NG (Next generation) or whatever becomes catchy and hype... but beware of the lawyers in case someone claims patenting the catchy apendage.

I just want to make it clear -- I meant no offense to Bluetooth SIG by writing this piece. However, as I stressed in this blog, I am so weary of the world of smart everything. Am I the only one feeling that way?
