Definitions for four color glossies
The New Hacker's Dictionary
four color glossies
1. Literature created by marketroids that allegedly contains technical specs but which is in fact as superficial as possible without being totally content-free. “Forget the four-color glossies, give me the tech ref manuals.” Often applied as an indication of superficiality even when the material is printed on ordinary paper in black and white. Four-color-glossy manuals are never useful for solving a problem. 2. [rare] Applied by extension to manual pages that don't contain enough information to diagnose why the program doesn't produce the expected or desired output.
