Razers, razors, Razrs and blades. What's the difference?

Because not everyone knows.

There's been some confusion, so let's get this straight:

This is a razor.

This is a Razer Phone. With an 'e':

This is not a Razr phone, no matter what the company says:

(It's smaller than the regular Razer Blade.)

This is a Razer Blade Stealth running Blade Shadow, because I'm a ninja like that.

You know, blades, shadows... ninjas? Ah, forget it.  

These are Blade glasses:

To recap: 

  • Razor makes things with wheels for kids
  • Razer makes things with three-headed snake logos for gamers
  • Motorola still makes phones, but no longer makes Razrs
  • Altered Carbon is a poor substitute for more Blade Runner
  • The next time I see a product called "Blade," it had better damn well be able to open a can of tuna.
