It has the unfortunate transition of an 's' and includes a 't' in the second syllable. Where does it go when the market ascribes a short moniker? Key Tech would have been better. Short and no where to go with it."

You quote

"The first thing that popped into my head before reading your blog is "Keystone." I know you and you have nothing to do with oil and gas but the word Keysight doesn't sound tech."

I might also point out that "Keystone" was the name of 3 (now failed) nightclubs in Berkeley, Palo Alto and San Francisco. It's also the name of a really bad beer made by Coors.

When I Googled "Keysight", the first link that popped up in the search was this one: http://keysightinc.com/index.html. Weight loss and lottery decoders… Hmmm… They might want to slip Eric Schmidt some cash!
