Re: Please stop.
This is one of the reasons I so vehemently hate Apple. Their marketing department constantly changes technical terminology. For instance, their Mac vs PC commercials convinced people that any device running Windows was a PC, all the while the Mac's they were advertising were in fact PC's themselves. They did the same thing when they released the iPhone. They knew their hardware wasn't up to par and that iOS wasn't a fully functional OS. So, they were forced to brand their phone as a smart phone, because it wasn't as fully featured as the PDA phones of the time. But because of their marketing department another technical term (the PDA phone) died when Apple decided to rename a category of devices. I could go on and on. The bottom line is that its unethical for a company's marketing department to change technical terminology in order to deceive their customers. And the mislabeling of all these networks as 4G was an egregious infraction.
