What's Dumber: A Stupid Name or Meaningless Model Number?

By Sam Biddle on at

Motorola's got a new tablet called the Xyboard. That's an asinine name for anything. On the other hand, Samsung sells a beautiful 55-inch LCD TV called the UN55D8000, and Sony's awesome 3D helmet is labeled the inscrutable HMZ-T1. What's worse?

A lot of products are given some pretty dumb names: the Xoom, the Bionic, the MOTOKRZR of yore—but is a bad name you'll remember worse than a string of gibberish numbers and letters that you'll forget?
