Refers to the blatant gimmick used by computer and telecommunications corporations of presenting their product as being cutting edge and cool by adding an "i" to the start of the product name. The excuse given usually being that the product is "internet capable" even though many other similar products of have been "internet capable" for years without their manufacturers believing it necessary to emphasize the fact by putting on an "i" on the beginning of the name.
Hey, man, are you gonna buy one of them new iphones?

What's the 'I' for?

It's 'I' like in Internet.

Um, so? Cellphones with internet links have been around in Japan and South Korea for at least 4 years before that thing came out. I-this, I-that. Wtf? More damn i-hype!

Get the i-hype mug.
What you scream into the ears and faces of all that dont believe the genuine leap in skill you just experienced.
Alternatively, either when you know solidly you're more than capable and people question it even in the face of concrete evidence, or when you are indeed a bad ass but your self image is a tad less than your actual self.
