Google better watch out



  •  I was surfing the web looking for a robotic vaccum cleaner. Thy don't sell Roomba in Europe (a WTF in itself) so I was looking for info on an Electrolux Trilobite. I found it being sold on a local eshop and since I found the product there I used their search function to look for a Roomba (just in case). No luck so I looked around a bit and then entered 'trilobite' in the search field to go back. No product found.

    Odd.

    I went back via back button and copy-pasted the product name in the search field and this time it found it. I typed it by hand and it didn't. Turns out the product name on their page was in uppercase and I was typing in lowercase.

    Their search engine is case-sensitive.

    That was supposed to be humour... ah, never mind



  • - I wanna trilobite!

    - You can't have one.

    - I WANT A TRILOBITE !!

    - Ok, ok! here, take one... sheesh!



  • TRWTF is robotic vaccume cleaners... Although they are GREAT toys for cats, too bad they are expensive as hell.

     

    Edit: we need a robotic remote-controled vaccume cleaner with bright glowing red eyes and a hand to poke cats as I make it chase them all over the house, making it also sparkly clean!

    Cats can be more entertained by a shoe string than even the most expensive toy... although they did love my RC helicopter until they destroyed it.

    I tried that. My cat just gives me a look like "you really think I'm going to fall for that?"

    She does like the little rabbit fur mice dipped in catnip though ... and newspapers and bags and cardboard boxes ...
