    pushed

    I'm confused about the meaning of "pushed" in the following context.

    One customer lamented how some MacBook laptops were no longer including a Firewire port. Steve, who seemed to be less adamant about the Firewire protocol that Apple had long pushed in its products, replied, "actually, all of the new HD camcorders of the past few years use USB 2."

    Thank you.

    They pushed it, meaning that they included it in their products and touted how wonderful it was.
