Sony Releases A New Device

For all the technology haters out there..., this will take over the Kindle and the iPod put together!

O.K., it's only (kind of) a joke

OMG!!!! Shocking!
Do ADULT (decent looking) Americans really use such filthy language on public and on TV?? I thought that it was just pimply little 17yr old nerds, who can hardly speak English and can't spell, skulking in their father's basements, taking out their anger by trolling on the internet....
I wonder what Sony will think about the American market when they see this.

No, it's a satirical parody - more info here - although in this case the satire does seem to at a fairly low level...

I think, part of the satire is the type of language people often hurl at devices that don't do what they are supposed to do....

I dunno. I used to think The Onion was funny, but I think it's seriously gone downhill. There really wasn't much to that bit, other than the foul language, and repetition of the same joke.

But, no, such language is not typical, even in satire, and of course wouldn't even be allowed on American broadcast TV.

Heh, you've never heard a guy faced with a problem in his garage, or in his media room....

And no, this kind of stuff is not allowed on broadcast TV. Oh no, swear words!? Or a female breast!? Never! There might be kids watching.

Instead, they have shows with graphically mutilated bodies and opened up heads.

I honestly was shocked and didn't find it even in the least bit funny! All I could think about was the shock and horror and SHAME, of the poor mums of those people, (that is of course if people like that actually HAVE mothers) if they ever saw that show by accident!
What about their kids? What if their kids saw that show?

Uhm, I dunno..., maybe they'd find it really funny..., 'cause it kind of is.

Different people, different strokes. Sorry you were offended by a bit of cussing. I can think of a lot worse. No violence or harm done, though.
