Perusing a trade magazine, I came upon an ad for a blood pressure monitor, Kinetik.  It bragged that it is the “first in the WORLD to be tested and approved by the British Hypertension Society’s validation service.”

eeeeew.  Now thats really something….

How meaningless is that? It’s likely some guy’s friend with a fancy title.
