As Goedel has shown every logical must ultimately circular. The circle has
to be widened enough to include terms whose meaning is agreed upon by all
involved parties so that a common understanding can be reached.

Marketing speak is valid in a certain business context and has some
meaning that are often offensive to us since it does not map clearly to
our engineering concepts and strict definitions that we like.
Nevertheless lots of users use the terms in the marketing sense and
engineers get sucked into other meanings of words.
