Dear Gizmodo,

Virtually every use of “teed off by” on the web is in reference to someone becoming annoyed by golfers. Given that, perhaps you should reconsider this bit of release-euphemizing:

“Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y-series consumer notebooks are all going 16:9 widescreen, teed off by the 16-inch Y650, …”

I suppose I’d get a bit teed-off if my sibling had 16 inches, too…
