PR-magdeddon! is a new feature here on Channel Marker, where we call out vendors for press releases that aren’t exactly the most clear and concise things in the world. Check out last week’s debut if you missed it and then read this week’s worst offenders. If you’re brave enough to try and decipher what these press releases mean, leave a comment.
