As much as I love reading Wired, I find it a bit tiresome how they go completely over the top in using overtly techy terms when more normal (and accurate) ones would do. For example on the reviews page, Iain Banks is described as writing ‘post-cyberpunk novels’. Well, that’s interesting, because the last time I looked at them (a few hours ago) they were just plain old science fiction.
Likewise for the phrase, ‘every cast member was cyberscanned into a 3-D synthespian’ for describing how character models were made for the upcoming Matrix game. You’d think that Wired would be above this sort of thing.
