Hi MathsIsFun;

Looks good and is easy to understand. Good work.

But I would still buy the Canon.

hi MathsIsFun,

Another clear explanation with good examples; well done!

I'm just wondering if it is 'safe' to use actual company names.

Could you be open to legal nastiness, because, for example, Canon might argue you have promoted a rival's product unfairly. I think UK exam boards get around this by making up names eg. Sany and Conan. Just a thought for your protection. ???

Good idea Bob. Sany and Conan sound fun! Also Sonu and Canan ... or Soni and Canyn?

On second thoughts, you'd better make Conan the preferred make. Else out of the legal frying pan and into the barbarian fire.

Hi,

How about Cannon and Sonny?!
