MONTREAL — Much like “Hootsuite,” “Nvidia,” “Etsy” and countless others, the term “Aylo” is tech-sounding to the point of cliché. In this sense, it’s more or less the same as “MindGeek,” the company name it recently replaced: vaguely aspirational-sounding and totally meaningless. Neither suggests the company in question controls some of the biggest pornographic titles in the world. The only difference: “Aylo” has the benefit of novelty, while “MindGeek” is one of the most toxic names in tech.
