4
The act of providing incremental updates to a piece of hardware such as a smartphone, CPU or wearable device in the form of marginal spec bumps instead of releasing a revolutionary device.

Usually requires you to buy an entirely new device to get, for example, slightly more internal storage space or a marginally better CPU speed.

Usually done by hardware manufactures such as Apple, Motorola and Qualcomm.

The goal is to make as much money off of existing technology as possible before spending money to innovate.
I really hope that Merrifield and the next iteration of it are good and I hope Logan is great too because no one is competing with Qualcomm so they are literally sitting on their asses trying get another year out of bumping clocks on Krait.

An "incentive" offered by companies where they charge you more money and then give it to you at the time of purchase. Also known as "customer cash," cash back is frequently a ploy used by car dealerships and more recently cable TV providers. It plays on greedy consumers' tendency toward impulse buying. To the dealer it sounds like "here's some of the money you're going to pay us" but to the average consumer it sounds like "I can go buy a new car AND a flatscreen TV!"
Come in today and buy a new car and get $2,00 cash back!

A place where companies outsource customer service or technical support, ostensibly because it's cheaper than having in-house support.
