Subject:Re: product lite From:Tina Cipolla <tcipolla -at- ACCUSOFT -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 10 Mar 1997 17:10:18 -0500
My company is planning to release a light version of one of our
products. Basically it is going to be the original product minus a
bunch of features; the advantage being that it will be sold at a
reasonable price for the average consumer. (Our regular market is
developers.) We are having trouble coming up with a name for the thing.
Almost every word I can come up with that could be used after the
product name has a negative connotation, which we don't want. The
general consensus around the office is that no one likes "lite" to
follow the product name but we have yet to come up with anything better.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. E-mail me unless you feel
your response is of interest to the list as a whole.
