What exactly is “zero distance communication”?
Talking to yourself!!
Speech at the United Nations or talking to a 16 year old.
Zero Distance Communications.
1. Talking to a dummy load?
2. Talking to girl friend or wife if they ticked off at you.
3. Trying to communicate with IRS.
The current state of my project
Another meaningless “buzzword” like “empowerment” et al created by the corporate world meaning how they attract/communicate [with] customers by using all forms of seemingly unrelated mediums. It’s how they communicate with the “Baby-boomers” (flyers, newspapers, email) and the “Millennials” (the Cloud, Facebook, Twitter).
Apple tried “zero distance communication” (stupidly) by flooding everyone’s iPhones with the latest U2 CD without asking for permission. Which prompted one millennial to Tweet: “Who the hell is ‘U2″ and why the hell are they in my playlist?!” Ouch!
BTW, the “proper” term is “marketing”.
BTW: Was this just a rhetorical question? (Which is also rhetorical, BTW) 🙂
Unfortunately in the world of radio communication, “zero distance” isn’t exactly considered a feature. 🙂
I can’t find the banner myself and their Chinese site also doesn’t feature this slogan, but I can already make an educated guess based on my experience with how the Chinese think. If you want to communicate and there is distance between you and the other party, it could become a bit problamatic. By using Woxun radios you can communicate over a distance while it seems there is zero distance between you and the other.
And then….if I really translate “zero distance communication” it comes out as “令距離溝通“ or “溝通令距離“ which a Chinese phase meaning good/proper/clear communication. So there you go. Another good example of Chinglish in our daily lives. Zaijian from Taiwan.
Found the banner and they already have changed the slogan into “Super signal, Long Distance Communication.” Liked the other one better.
Good answers and a great explanation, Hans. But I’ll add one more:
The easiest way to get DXCC.
I figured it meant talking without pushing the PTT button or trying to talk with no power source
