    1. revenue

      Why not just call it "total"?

    2. category

      Category sounds like something broader that would contain this product, not a variant of this product (and therefore more specific than the product 'name').

      "variant" would have been a better choice

    1. the body of law derived from judicial decisions of courts and similar tribunals.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The defining characteristic of “common law” is that it arises as precedent.

      The way "common law" sounds and is used, I would have thought it meant law that is common (in common between) many countries, laws that can be found on the books in all of these many places. (Kind of like commonwealth.)

      But, although it is common to many countries, that is not its defining characteristic. Its defining characteristic is actually something quite different.

      Since the term is so far removed from what it actually means, I would even go so far as to say it is a mild euphemism.

      Much better names for this exist: judicial precedent or judge-made law are the clearest options. But even "case law" is a better term.

    1. Google Analytics Premium (later to be renamed Google Analytics 360)

      Google Analytics Premium was a better name, because it is very clear what it is.

      Google Analytics 360 sounds dumb to me. What does 360 have to do with anything?

      Reminds me Xbox Live 360 (and, though an unrelated number, Office 365). Are they copying Microsoft?

      Reminds me of YouTube Red. Where do they come up with this stuff?
