Why is everything "Product" these days? Doesn't anyone make automobiles, action figures or fruitcakes anymore? And why is all information "Content?" It as if there were a movement to purge the English language of specificity.

I understand that many companies make all sorts of different things, and that sometimes, a generic term for stuff is handy. But terms like "product" and "content" seem to be very much removed from the actual things, almost to the point of complete separation.
