Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
Yes. Unfortunately, it all goes beyond presentations. Perhaps I am entering a phase of skepticism.

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
<but it's still "buyer beware" of the puffery in the marketplace of sellers.> @DonBrowne that's good advice for anything that hops on the tech du jour bandwagon for marketing, whether it's big data, AI, or 5G.

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
Yes, it does seem that exaggerated claims or inventing new phrases for services are becoming more common. I have been noticing the various internet service providers pitches lately as competition grows, some more truthful than others but it's still "buyer beware" of the puffery in the marketplace of sellers.

@Susan that is very true. Accordingly, we have to not take presentations at face value.

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
I wonder how much of this is actually different or "game-changing" and how much of it just a sales pitch to sell hardware. 

"If you think your WiFi is great now, just wait until you try WiFi 6."

"Why is it Wifi 6?"

"Well...Because...6 sounds like more than 5."

Re: Why not dial it straight to eleven?
I didn’t realise there was a Wi-FI 1-5 either. How can it be?
