We use a platform called Aptible at work that I use somewhat infrequently.

Thanks to a wide range of sci-fi stories, I invariably try to type it as "ansible" the first couple times and have to stare at the screen for a few seconds to remember what the heck our deployment platform is actually called.

Now I wanna read Hyperion again. Also, I just looked it up and (re-)learned that the term was originally coined by LeGuin, rad!
