Its use in the tech sector is a simple corruption, by marketing types, of the original use. There's no magic in that; marketing people co-opt words from other fields and corrupt their meanings all the time, and it was ever thus. To be fair, though, your original post did sound as if you were looking for the earliest use of the term, not specifically the earliest use in tech marketing.
