Basically, the latest press on the iLoo concept can be summed up like this:
“Ok, ok, the iLoo wasn’t a hoax after all, we just said it was one. Then we realized that while this plan worked to get you to stop laughing at us for inventing the iLoo in the first place, now you were laughing at us for claiming that it was an April Fool’s Day joke, just a month late. Crap, that backfired too. Still being laughed at by everyone. The truth is, we really have no clue what is going on, but it was a crappy idea so we pulled it from the market.”
Good idea, Microsoft! [via Mike]
By the way, one of my pet peeves is when you ask someone a question and they answer by saying, “Do you want me to tell you the truth?” No! No! Lie to me! I love it when you lie to me! Of course I want the truth – that’s why I asked the question! Don’t you just hate that question?
