Just for my own curiosity with all these acronyms, what does FOB stand for? I know you mean the key remote but what do the letters mean?
FOB is a very old acronym. It is a term modifying the price of shipped goods. It stands for "free on board." If a seller and buyer agree on a price of shipped goods with the term, FOB. at some port (e.g. "FOB, New York") it means that the price includes shipping to that port and "on board the vessel". The buyer is responsible for the cost of unloading from the vessel as well as shipping from the dock to the destination.
FOS, a similar term, stands for "free on side" and means that the price includes also the cost of unloading from the vessel to the dock.
POS, on the other hand is, I think, usually an abreviation for "positive", as in the positive terminal of a battery.
POS seems also to be used as an acronym. I do not think that it is complimentary or polite.
Now forgive me if I state the obvious, just in case Raja's question was serious,. Fob, as used in this forum, probably is not an acronym, but merely a word, "fob," meaning a sort of small device used on the end of a chain for decoration or handling, as in a watch fob on the end of a watch chain or a key fob on thened of a key chain. In recent years it has been adopted as the name for the remote control device that locks/unlocks our car,
