JavaScript isn't Java.

Samsung QLED isn't QLED.

Brand marketing :blobcatinnocent:

@polychrome remember when the name JavaScript was chosen because it was intended to be a way to extend Java and so Sun promoted it as

· Web · 1 · 0 · 1

@espectalll I thought it was chosen because Netscape thought it'll sell better with Java being super hot at the time.

@ilovecomputers @polychrome imagine if people told Sun now that JS was going to eat up the whole Java business and spawn even more rivalry (Electron, WebAssembly)
