    Velo

    Just saw a commercial for a product called "Velo". No, it has nothing to do with cycling. It's for some nicotine pouches. Maybe not a trademark infringement, but feels like some sort of infringement nonetheless.

    Insert something clever here:

    I guess with all the bad publicity with vaping they think this will be an alternative. I suppose it has the advantage that you can use it while riding.

    It's is kind of an odd name choice. Much like being a porn star named Virgin.
