On October 13, 2009, Apple posted a tech bulletin about their new iFrame video format. On that same day, Sanyo sent out a press release about two new Sanyo cameras which support this new homophonic video format. Although I an intrigued by the new format, I am disturbed by their choice of this homophonic, heterographic term, as you will see ahead in this TecnoLinguistic article.
