Marketers are always trying to come up with perpetually sexier names for products. Just walk down the aisle at a mega-store and be amazed at the different brand that appear. Gadgets, which used to be named by their hardware specifications, have recently attempted to revert to simple, fun, and iconic names—like the iPhone! But on occasion, these names are terribly, terribly wrong. Smartphones have been the largest culprit of over-sensualized gadget names so Intercom.io decided to make a comparison chart between the names of Android phones and type of condoms.
The parallels are casually terrifying.
Of course this all makes sense (kind of). Smartphones are things that you are supposed to touch and enjoy—they’re even supposed to feel good. Though, I can’t remember the last time I held a prophylactic contraceptive to my ear, no matter the “intensity” it promised.
