Quirky news from the world of geek­dom

HANDY DE­SIGNS FOR DEIN HANDY? Got a phone with a case on it? Is it a plain colour or does it have some kind of de­sign? A friend of your hum­ble writer loves her wa­ter-filled case with bright pink glit­ter. But per­haps you’re the sort of per­son who’d like to have a per­son­alised case with a pic­ture of your cat or spouse. If that’s the case, stay away from ‘my-handy-de­sign’ on Ama­zon, be­cause this bot has more than a few dig­i­tal loose screws. Apart from a few not-too-bad stock pho­tos of sun­sets and wood­land, it’s also cre­ated cases fea­tur­ing pic­tures of an in­grown toe­nail, a pile of con­tra­cep­tive tablets, a woman hav­ing fa­cial hair re­moval treat­ment, a preg­nant woman ly­ing on a bed with a pil­low cov­er­ing her face, and a pic­ture of lots of dif­fer­ent kinds of shaved meat. While a few users have left tongue-incheek com­ments on these items, we’d be sur­prised if any­one had ac­tu­ally bought one of them. This bot needs to go back to art school.
