Pet Peeve

« previous next »

I have a little mini-aneurysm every time I hear a sales-weasel say "software program". It sometimes makes sense to say "computer program" in some contexts where there might be ambiguity with some other meaning of the word program, such as a theatre program, but there is no context where "software" is ambiguous. "Software program" is a redundancy like "ATM machine" and every time I hear it gives me the mental image that all the appliances in the sales-weasel's apartment are blinking 12:00.
