"It is a pity the Reg could not make it that clear in the first place. They seem to have lost all their science-qualified writers who could examine critically a press release or abstract rather than just copying the words."

Are you kidding me??? We used the correct term in the correct context, and we're the ones who screwed up?

So you're saying we have to caveat everything we write in case someone doesn't understand. You want articles that read like: "The board has 4GB of RAM – that's readable-writeable memory not read-only ROM - and an ARMv8 CPU - that's CPU not GPU..."

Get outta here.

PS: The article was written by someone with an astrophysics degree and edited by someone with an engineering degree.
