60 Gigahenries Per Second

I found this ad recently on Slashdot:

60 Gigahenries Per Second

60 Gigahenries Per Second

It prominently shows the text “60GH/s”, which seems quite peculiar to me. That is the proper way to write 60 gigahenries per second. The unit Henry (H) is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. I’m sure inductance plays a role in whatever the product is, but I doubt that henries per second is something worth advertising. I think henries per second is equivalent to ohms (Ω), the unit of electrical resistance. I’m sure there are cheaper ways to get something with 60GΩ, like use the insulation on whatever electrical cable is nearby and decide that the difference in resistance is within the margin of error.
