    Does anyone else want to scratch your eyes out seeing the same things over and over in every review or positive post lol?

    Daily Driver (Mine has 4 wheels, not 4G)
    Rockin' (if you don't have a distorted electric guitar, you are not rockin' anything....)
    Cute nicknames for manufacturers (Sammy? Really?? My mother's dog is named Sammy)
    Buttery smooth (Butter is buttery smooth, not your OS)
    Power User (which you become after your power breakfast, put on your power tie, and make your power moves)
    Ecosystem (Not that irritating, just overused)
    Cloud (Remote storage has been around about as long as networking has been around. One company put's an "i" in front of it and now suddenly everyone has to have one...)

    Just felt like venting today lol

    Vent away! I agree with "daily driver" and "buttery smooth": all that's colorful has long ago been drained out of that figurative language. They ain't nothin but cliches now.

    The new kneejerk cliche, though, is "snappy" (along with "snappier" and "snappiest"). It shows up in damned near every forum post, article, review, and video that contains even the slightest mention of the Pixel or Pixel XL: "I just can't believe how snappy this phone is!" MF, please.

    Should of
    Could of
    Would of

    As brought up before by Paul627g I think, and others, this has unfortunately become part of the English language.
    It's formerly gutter talk by people who don't wont speke proper like.

    A tv newsreader and a radio presenter recently both interviewed asking but.... could OF.

    It's HAVE, people!

    There's no logic to could of.


    have have


    it's have :sob:

    I tell you one that drives me nuts for some reason: "jank" and every hipster/cool way to say the word. I don't know why, but it seems like everyone on earth says that. One particular podcast that I listen to says that at least half a dozen times during each episode.
