    News. I utilize a simple linguistic device to diffuse technological and consumer product ‘hype’. I simply put … ‘Not-so’ … prefixed to the concept. Not-so smartphone. Not-so plug and play. Not-so new. Not-so improved.

    After using the ‘not-so’ prefix one can achieve a relative calm and find a place in the not-so old school.
