Chris Morton asked, "What's in a name?"
"...a new standalone software product "B"..[has]...the ability to export data sets to our preexisting, flagship medical device on which the "B" data sets converge with our "A" software....I'm looking for a word that conveys its integration with "A" ... I'm looking to convey the notion of "A, now with plugin B". ..Can you think of a name that connotes plug-in,
yet isn't so geek-oriented?"
Since the whole world is adopting "Apps" on cellphones and tablets, I don't see why you don't just call "B" the new "App" for "A". Geeky or not, it's what everyone is calling all sorts of things.
