French term or phrase:puce (double meaning)
This is a 'lite' history of the effect of computers on society and, at the same time, on a major French auto manufacturer. The term 'puce' is used throughout the article to describe either the chip or the 4CV, one of their successful subcompacts. How can I convey this double meaning?
"Une diode, un transistor, un calculateur, une « puce »"
"Familiale et citadine, économique et confortable, la « Puce » sera jusqu'à l'arrêt de sa production, en 1961, la voiture du peuple français."
