Exaggerated tech terms

"If you can’t dazzle them with your wit, bamboozle them with your bullshit." - Anonymous

My favorites from ComputerWorld's10 most exaggerated tech terms -

Valued Partner: Except when that partner decides not to renew its licensing agreements, and then the vendor treats that valued partner the way Michael Corleone treated his valued brother Fredo.
Don't Be Evil: How 'bout just a teensy, weensy bit evil when we feel like it, because we have good intentions?
Facebook Privacy: FB's privacy policies (automatic opt-in!) seem to change as often as Zuckerberg's T-shirts. 
Thought Leader: If you've ever had a decent thought (or perhaps even two or three insights) that you Tweeted or shared on Facebook, that does not make you a thought leader (or guru or influencer or expert). 
Generally Available: If a vendor's product is still having its "tires kicked" by a "select set of customers" (otherwise known as beta testers) and has got more bugs than The Roach Motel, then it's not close to GA, folks.
