People are way too uptight and PC (gay too, apparently). It's almost like the population is trying to neuter itself.


This X a million. You'd have to have super thin skin to be offended by something so inane.

Maybe it is time to ban fat, ugly people from posting on Twitter.

This is generally what happens when you let the bible belt and the uk`s daily mail readers online.

I can see the point of the other side; there's a time and place for this, and I don't think a corporate twitter account was it.

Only reason I write this is because you all sound like *******s...

Unprofessional, but so what? Plenty of companies stamp all over professional boundaries via social networks to give their company a 'personal touch'.

I can see why people are up in rage about it, but it doesn't mean they're right.

Sounds more like someone didn't realize what they were posting in the photo and were just talking about the laptop. If there's an outcry over this people need a reality check.


It's tough to say, but I think I agree with you. I've seem comments made like this in the past that wasn't meant the way it sounded. It's not an uncommon thing. lol

This is the 21st century. Joe average wants a company that understands them, not cold sterile corporate speak.

Nothing wrong with the comment per se, but company's should be a little more careful about what they post.
Leave 'cheeky' innuendo to individuals.
