Replying to:  New naming scheme by Tofuchong   Mar 10, 2013, 2:07 PM

Why get the One when you can get the One X!

by Rusty Shackleford    Apr 5, 2013, 1:27 AM

So the One X is the predecessor to the One.

I can't blame a marketing guru for this stupid decision because being utterly clueless seems to be a hallmark of a successful marketing executive, but somewhere in that chain of command in HTC there ought to have been someone WITH A CLUE who would have noticed that this completely violates decades of precedence established for the naming of technological devices.

I hope this hurts HTC's sales of this device substantially. I am so sick of stupidity like this in the world. I think this is even worse than GM's decision to sell the Chevy Nova in spanish-speaking countries ("Nova" sounds like "No va" in espanol which means "it does not go") It's not as funny as GM's bad decision, but I think HTC's decision is far more obvious in its stupidity.
