Why ask why

Uncle Walter has reviewed a new thing called the “Eee Pad Transformer Prime”. In his review, he said:

Asus and Nvidia build in three battery modes, and I tested only the one called Normal. Unfortunately, Nvidia now says that nomenclature is misleading, and that Normal is really meant for only high-performance tasks. So, early next year, when it switches to the next version of Android, it plans to rename Normal as “Performance,” to steer users to a less power-hungry mode called “Balanced.” I can’t say how the Prime’s battery will perform in that scenario with the new OS.

Ben Brooks asked:

Why ship the tablet with a battery mode mislabeled?

A better question might be, why ship a tablet with a battery mode?
