4G World: OMG!

3:20 PM -- CHICAGO -- 4G World -- At a show where people will talk about the QoE (quality of experience) for mobile video with a straight face, there's no shortage of teeth-grindingly bad acronyms to choose from.

I think M2M2H is the stupidest shortening I've heard yet though. That's machine-to-machine-to-human to you and me. There are many things that are machine-to-human and vice versa in this world, those endless robo-calls I get from Dr. Cindy Trim (whatever you're trying to sell I'm not buying, doc) and this Website is arguably H2M2H if you leave out a couple of editing stages. I guess a conference call is H2T2Hs. It all just gets silly once you get beyond a nice simple M2M though.

re: 4G World: OMG!

We should get a list going of other stupid acyronms and telecom expressions. I don't think it'll be hard.

1. "like __ on steriods"

2. green!
