Prevue Channel Guide Startup & Boot Fail

Remember those incredibly annoying days of the scrolling “what’s on TV” now? (I guess they still have those on some basic cable plans.) This is a great boot fail of the Prevue Channel Guide.

Granted, this is from 1993 and was probably powered by a computer that now comes in a basic children’s toy. Still an annoying guide one way or another.

Google Translate Fail – When Is A Word the Exact Same Word?

Google Translate is normally pretty helpful. Except when it provides absolutely NO value whatsoever! Just translate this fail!

Wow Google…I didn’t know that word meant exactly the same thing! Well, maybe the “de” changing to “du” is enough value? Maybe it should be “DUH”!

Find My iPhone Causes Umpire Fail & a Bit of Rage

Technology is usually helpful, except when it isn’t. A youth baseball umpire “lost” his iPhone (Fail #1), “tracked it down” via Find My iPhone (Win #1), accused someone who was “in the proximity” using an iPhone of stealing it (Fail #2), punched the “thief” (Fail #3), took “HIS” iPhone (Fail #4), then later “found” the misplaced iPhone where he had left it (Fail #5).

The umpire is now facing charges of assault and disorderly conduct (Fail #6). Final score? Fail – 6 Win – 1 – all brought on by some pretty cool technology.
