    I noticed today that that Broadcom has made a grammatical mistake in the name of one of its products.


    The correct name should be Analytics on Premises.

    The reason why is because it's supposabley written by the German's. They had two choices. Irregardless, the result is neither good, well or acceptably. Should of used the proper form the word stems of off to insure proper spelling. The affect is that customers feel badly about this, and it effects their reputation, does not farther the cause, and loose them customers, resulting in many less customers. If their not getting it right, they should lend a dictionary for themselves, were not overlooking this more longer. For all intensive purposes, this usage of language literally blowed my mind, ruins my live, and I loath it, to, so I will now lay down and stay moot. But I hope their will fix it momentarily.

    (Sorry, could not resist. And if anyone wants to count, I counted 29 mistakes, and "irregardless" is, surprisingly, not one of them)

    ;)
