How little you understand marketing.  :-)

I still remember when multi-media started to be a buzzword a local office
supplies chain here (Grand & Toy) advertised "multi-media disk storage
boxes."  How was it multi-media?  It could hold both 5.25" and 3.5"
floppy disks.

A product is what marketing says it is.
