microsoft namings. [Jul. 12th, 2006|12:24 am]
[update: microsoft is now using a pedophilic/homo-erotic animation as a zune teaser]

ladies and gentlemen, prepare for microsoft's "Ipod killer fucker". which they intend to call:

for full effect please write said name in hebrew:

ן ו י ז

נו.. אז מי פה רוצה זיון?

for those who are not hebrew readers - microsoft is, basiclly, calling their new digital audio player "Fuck", or at least something the spells "f u c k" - when written - in hebrew.

so if one-care wasn't enough, just think about how this product will fly off the shelves in Israel. I can't wait for the press reviews!

I just know some anonymous person will write that it's 'זון' not 'זיון' - but that person would be wrong.
'zune' is NOT 'zoon', in the same way that 'mule' is NOT 'mool'. the differance that 'e' makes translates to a 'י' in hebrew.

זה יהיה כל כך כיף!

אני מחכה ליום שבוא אלך לבאג, ואשאל את המוכרת כמה עולה זיון.

וצפוי שאפנה לתמיכה טכנית עכב בעיות עם הזיון - זה מוצר של מיקרוסופט.

אני לא יכול לחכות!

רק תזהרו מלהוריד חומר פיראטי לזיון פן אקו"ם יזינו אותכם. המזדיינים.

here is a translation of the hebrew bits in this post:

"do you want a fuck?"

this is going to be so much fun, I can't wait to go to a gadget store and ask the girl at the counter "how much does it cost to get a 'fuck' here?". or calling techsupport complaining about problems when listening to the 'fuck' - which, as this is a first generation MS product you will have for sure.

just be carefull not to load pirated songs into your fuck as the RIAA will fuck you. the fuckers.

it reminds me of the time chevrolette

went out with a new car - the "chevy nova" and didn't understand why it wasn't selling in south america.
seems that in translation "chevy nova" means "won't move" in some spanish dialect...

one-care(s) :-)

Re: it reminds me of the time chevrolette

Erm, that "some spanish dialect" would be the spanish language proper. As in "no" = "no" and "va" = "go".

No Point

You could change the points and write it as only Zain and Nun. But that's getting picky. ;)

Well, in it's blog anyway:

A funny talkback:
בני ראה את הכתבה
בני לא נתקל במילים כאלה זיון וזונה עכשיו הוא למד אותכם בזכותם ממש תודה רבה לכם רציתי שהיה לי בן מחונך והוא שאל אותי היום מה זה זונה וזיון ממש חוצפה!

as, if the story's to be believed, "Pinto" is used in parts of South America as a slang term for a small penis (from pinto bean, I assume).

"'zune' is NOT 'zoon'" ? So...what about 'dune'?

'zune' is NOT 'zoon', in the same way that 'mule' is NOT 'mool'.

Um...so, what about 'dune'?

Is the Mac Really Safer Then a PC

Everyone claims the mac is safer but realisticly isn't it less safe because most people on a mac are not as cautious as pc users. Pc users are running software firewalls to see what connections are coming in and out[url=http://universe-of-mp3.info/download-free-song-video.html],[/url] sandboxing type software and other security type programs.
If someone personally knows you are on a mac seems they could target you better since they know you proably won't be looking for anything out of the ordinary.

What do you guys think
