Huh. Odd that it's a trademarked term I've always heard it for such machines. I wonder if it was trademarked before or after the term became popular? I could almost see it being a generic-ized term like "styrofoam" or "thermos."

Anyway, it just grated whenever they called it a chain-reaction machine.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
