Just Kidding

Apparently, Microsoft’s iLoo was an April Fool’s joke… announced in May. Just goes to show that Microsoft really can’t make any ship date.

May 14th: …or not…

Now, Microsoft’s saying the iLoo was a real project. MS was so embarrassed by the public reaction to the announcement that the folks in the MSN group tried to find a way to cover their asses. From the article:

But Microsoft switched its story Tuesday and said that the iLoo had been a legitimate project by its British MSN Internet service that was terminated after the initial announcement prompted controversy, ridicule and disgust.

At first, I was trying to figure out what sort of twisted individual would think this was a good idea. Then it dawned on me that this was a natural pairing. After all, any potty-trained youngster can tell you that crap belongs in the toilet.

    Heh–good one :-). Honestly, I could never bring myself to believe that that was serious, no matter how many people insisted that it was true!
