EEE-nough already ~ Bad Product Names

EEE-nough already

The Asus EEE PC


Technically it's not spelled with all capitals, Eee. However, it is still an initialism. What it stands for is a bit redundant: easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play.

Guess they needed to resort to tripling of the letters since the i-craze, e-craze, x-craze, what have you, is so cliche now.
What's to stop someone from seeing "NEW EEE PC" and thinking it has to do a shoe size width? Also, wouldn't you want your products being AAA quality rather than low-grade sounding EEE?

The Asus EEE PC is a good model though. It made it into my shorlist of possible new PCs. Now that you mention it, I can't figure out what the EEE is about.

I am glad I am not the only one who dislikes this name! The laptop is adorable, but the name, eee...I don't know, just don't like it.

Yeah. Agreeable.! Now I found someone in common with me on that. ha.

I have to agree on the name, though the amount of mods that are so easy to do it are increditable. Well, easy if you have a degree in electrical engineering...

Eee is rather low grade sounding. It also reminds me of Eeek!, which is a scream of fear and tells me to run away.

Not a pretty name choice.

:O)

2 many dang "e"'s. It confuses me with all of those vowels stacked up.

Jesus what were they thinking? Too many e's connected together for me.

That's really funny... I came across a group the other day which seemed to be using the hyphen in all their URL's rentin-marbella.com I'm now looking for funny versions with hyphens because Spanish names can be quite funny !

Maybe a re-designing of the logo may help a little bit.

I don't like the name either. It's kinda dumb how each E stands for a phrase and not a single word. 3E is too simple if they wanted to live by the Eee concept?

eee PC!! maybe "PC with 3e" could have been a better name

wonder how many man hours were spent thinking up that creative beauty?!

I´ve a Eee Pc and it´s a great laptop, but the name and logo are so bad.

Hypnosis Melbourne said...

What on earth were they thinking when their marketing team pulled this one out of the toilet? eeeek!

Krakow tours said...

The eee sounds to me exactly like the sort of noise you don't want your computer to make. So to associate that with your brand seems very silly.

The logo is not good. It look somehow disturbed.

That people don't have imagination! My 3 years old nephew would do it better.

TV Wall Bracket said...

May not be the best name, but this product has been selling itself just fine. Perhaps it's supposed to be suggestive of "Wii", a console that actually panders to a very similar crowd as this PC?

Maybe a re-designing of the logo may help a little bit.

I really like ASUS brand because their laptops are durable but I don't think I like the eee name either, it sounded funny and low grade computer. Maybe they have to change the name to something better..one E is enough I guess. I like your post!

2019.12.04台北市知名酒店經紀公司近期正在尋找酒店工作,或有意在公家機關內上班的人請注意,台北市政府依各轄內機關酒店上班人力需求,近期有66個機關釋出150個約聘僱酒店打工人員職缺。但因各酒店兼差需求人力職務、業務不同,因此薪資落差不小。例如北市府資訊局釋出的聘用高級研究員職缺,其月薪依學經歷,最高可達新台幣70000元,但台北市制服店、便服店、禮服店、鋼琴酒吧、日式酒店、飯局、傳播等服務員職缺,月薪僅給70000元。此次北市八大行業約聘僱人員招募自即日起~酒店兼職12月9日(週一)止受理報名,預計12月14日(週六)、12月15日(週日)舉辦甄試。

2020.04.04酒店工作印象中的和現實面有很大落差嗎?
現實和酒店上班印象中當然有很大的落差啊
因為我們一般收到酒店打工訊息 大都是從電影報章雜誌而來
而會有新聞報導價值的酒店PT新聞 通常是很特別很誇張的 這些新聞報導也許是有些接近酒店上班事實 但不是八大行業全部
(就如同捷運上有電車痴漢 但不是每班車隨時隨地有色狼啊 我們也常安全到家啊)
加上一般人的想法 這行總是只有負面 (當便利商店店員也會遇到砍人強劫)
其實凡事都有負面啊 端看自己怎麼面對
這行雖然不是賺錢最好的方式之一 但卻是最快的方式之一
我們只建議多了解多比較 看完環境 再做決定
別人只說這行的美好 但我們強調得失之間 去創造自己想要的生活
給自己一次機會 跨出第一步 若自覺不適合這行 就盡早打消夢幻的念頭 趕緊找其他出路 不是嗎??

2020.04.15酒店工作在台灣指的是有公關陪酒的場所。台灣在一名「酒店小姐」確診武漢肺炎(COVID-19、新冠肺炎)引起軒然大波。德國之聲專訪資深「酒店上班」干部談政府勒令八大行業酒店和舞廳停業的影響,也看看其他國家是如何處理疫情中的特種行業?
8日一名「酒店打工酒店小姐」確診後,台灣在4月9日宣布酒店舞廳全面停業。這個工作的神秘性質引起各種窺視和討論,許多人也擔心特種行業成為防疫的破口。在台灣的「酒店PT」工作了10幾年的酒店上班M小姐接受德國之聲訪問,她直言酒店停業只是讓產業「地下化」,對於防疫更加不利。她說:「像酒店還要來上班打卡,可以管控到上班的小姐有誰,客戶也是要透過我們這些干部。如果有小姐確診,公司都會有資料。」她說酒店停業之後,「傳播」變多了,更加危險。「傳播」指的是隨call隨到的陪酒服務。M小姐說這些傳播可能叫小姐到KTV或者其他一般夜生活的地點上班,反而沒有任何管控。就她來看,在「酒店」還可以做消毒,但許多從事這行的年輕人離開「酒店」之後普遍沒有衛生觀念。她說:「他們反而更不怕,我覺得漏洞會更大。」
M小姐也說,政府全面圍剿特種行業讓社會「失衡」,也可能讓治安出現問題。她說:「黃賭毒或是兄弟也都是靠八大。這就像公司如果現金花完了可能會倒閉,我們這行是如果大家都很窮的話,就可能會產生社會上的問題,像是強盜或是搶劫。」她口中的八大就是特種行業,與情色、性產業、性工作有或多或少的關聯。面對無預警遭停業,台灣目前有「酒店」業者發起聯署,要求政府提出配套措施,並希望政府補助「無兼職、無勞健保等,僅以酒店工作收入為生活依據的公關」。關注性工作者權益的日日春協會也要求政府說明法源依據,強調政府「把酒店舞廳等陪侍業當軟柿子開刀,且吃定社會不會為性產業工作者講話」。

2020.07.14不敢來酒店上班-酒店打工的原因在酒店上班必須經營的【人際關係】酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容會影響妳的收入!
我在酒店上班的日子這行業所面對就只是"人" 你把人性搞定了 其他就簡單了很多人離開這行時會覺得應對進退的能力變好了。
因此人際關係-酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?真的是非常的重要 在這行就是大家常說的【手腕】。
手腕不只是對客人 對其它人【姐妹們 業績幹部 店家行政和少爺】酒店小姐去酒店上班都一定要出場接s嗎?也是非常重要!
1. 酒店小姐上班通常會取什麼名字?和其它姐妹的互動關係要好:姐妹們在上檯時可以互相幫忙!
今天你幫她 下次換她幫你 和客人不會天天碰面,但她們可是天天見面的人若在同包廂時 同事彼此默契良好 氣氛很熱絡 客人自然開心 姊妹們賺起錢來也開心不是嗎?
2.和幹部關係也要好:因為店裡客人都是幹部們努力帶進來的 ,一家店的生意量絕對是靠大家的努力,所以要有幹部緣 當幹部喜歡你 她帶客人來消費時 就會特別說你的好話 讓客人選擇妳 增加上檯機會。
3.和行政關係要好:他們可都是很辛苦的呢!一個月薪水又沒有我們多 每天要做這麼長的時間 且他們腦裡有很多寶等我們去挖掘呢!若他們給妳工作上的方便 是好處多多(如遲到不扣錢)(甚至請假可以不用補班)
4.和少爺關係要好:千萬不要覺得他們只是服務生 想想自已喝醉時 少爺是會適時的保護你 貼心的送杯熱茶 和他們好最簡單的方式就是~幫他們跳小費!
這是一種學習!將來會受益無窮的!

2020.08.19不敢來酒店上班-酒店打工的原因風月場所無真愛!酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容一名林姓男子半年前賭博贏了500萬元,追求的一名我在酒店上班的日子酒店妹「娜娜」(化名)隨即答應與他交往,後來覺得娜娜把他盤子,需索無度,日前與她分手,不料卻遭一群惡煞擄走,以當初詐賭為由,酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?勒索300萬元,直到熟識的酒店老闆出面才獲釋。林男懷疑娜娜聯合擄人集團,獲釋後至今不敢回家,警方發覺,該集團以有錢人為目標設局犯案,且不止一樁,正積極偵辦中。由於娜娜惡行成了酒店業的害群之馬,八大行業已發布通緝令要把她揪出來。據了解酒店小姐去酒店上班都一定要出場接s嗎?,20歲出頭的娜娜原是一個乖乖女,下海當酒店小姐後,酒店小姐上班通常會取什麼名字?一夕間從清純妹變成狐狸精,傳聞專門勾搭有女友、已婚的多金男客下手,先設局讓對方暈船,再從中索求捧場、借錢,不久前曾介入男客家庭,被正宮抓姦,要求她出面負責,這次疑聯合擄人集團勒索,手段令人咋舌,惹怒八大行業對她發布通緝令。據「自由時報」報導,娜娜17歲時因為缺錢,想盡辦法到酒店上班,直到18歲才如願下海,因為敢玩、不在乎「身體界線」,很快被男客捧為紅牌。但娜娜隨著價值觀改變,加上後來生活圈漸漸複雜,與3、4年前相比判若2人,專勾引多金、已婚或有女友的男客,索求資金、捧場,由於手腕高明,年紀輕輕就從小姐成為酒店幹部,但日前介入男客家庭被正宮抓包,這次又疑聯合擄人集團綁架林男,恐遭抵制踢出八大行業。
