I’ve just been reading a hilarious review over at Engadget of the installation process for the software that comes with Microsoft’s new Zune device. Apart from the fact that the software clearly isn’t finished and has a high stinkage factor, what caught my eye was some of the language used in the screens. In particular:
What the heck does Welcome to the social mean? It’s not even English! Actually that’s not quite true. Around here it’s slang for the dole office. I’m sure that’s not quite the sleek and sexy iPod-bashing image that Redmond’s marketing supremos had in mind for the Zune!
