Boring Labourious and Overly… what? (BLOG)

I read a funny joke called BOOK (Bio-Optic Organised Knowledge) – here’s a taster:

BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology; no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It’s so easy to use even a child can operate it. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere, even sitting in an armchair by the fire, yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.

Don’t forget to scroll down and read the “rebuttal”:

But, as the record clearly shows, this BOOK technology has no useful market
outcome, in that during the entire period of the Renaissance, historians can
find no evidence of a single IPO.

Before investing in BOOK I recommend you ask some hard questions – is it Web2.0 compliant? How does it deal with version control? copyright? is it friendly to the environment? portable in quantity? distribution channels low cost? Collaborative features?

I remember the old Apple joke acronym for MACINTOSH – Machine Always Crashing If Not The Operating System Hangs. Anyone got any others? Maybe for the TELEVISION or BLOG?
