TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Actually, no, every tech writer who works with medical devices knows
that it's *right*: "Medical devices" do include software-only products.
Just a guess here: Ours isn't the only industry with terms that sound
counter-intuitive to those who've never worked there.

Subject: Re: FDA (b)anality
Other than Brian's comment being hilarious ...
If the FDA wants it, go with it. To me it is not worth the neural cycles
fighting over one word in a statement nobody is going to read,
especially when it is simply semantics. Move on to other, bigger, more
Sure, to you, me, and every other tech comm'r, we know it is wrong.
We're a weird breed.
