I think this just highlights that the setup (panel 1) had a fair amount of humor potential, which the second panel wasted on a not-joke.
How? The product name wasn't really the joke.
Yeah, but the product name could have been a joke, and the ad could have featured a bunch of extremely technical specifications that no one would understand, maybe it could have had a space for the megapixels on the product's camera and then refused to give them, because megapixels don't actually determine the camera's quality, etc. I dunno, I'm not a comic writer. I just feel like Zach could have done much more with the premise.

Engineer jokes aren't meant to be funny.

Seriously, he didn't make the product fail at marketing nearly as much as it would have if an engineer did it D'= (An engineer would probably package it in a brown cardboard box too <_<)
