As an engineer(ing student </3), I object to the name MagnaTablet!... If an engineer was marketing something by themself, it would have a name more like: HCD4026 (Handheld Computing Device)

I love this forum 150% as much as I love the comic.

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.

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 <_<)

How? The product name wasn't really the joke.

Engineer jokes aren't meant to be funny.

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.
