Dumb Buzzwords Must Die

Are there others out there who are annoyed by the growing use of the term "future-proof" in tech collateral and magazine articles?
It doesn't even make sense, IMO. If something is fire-proof, it's impervious to fire. Waterproof = protected from water. I don't see how protecting me from the future is a positive thing. Yes, I know what marketers mean when they use the word in their copy...but that doesn't make it less dumb.
I thought we were finished with this buzzword / buzzphrase silliness.
