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.
