The Digi-Mug - two products rolled into one really bad product

10 February 2009

Imagine you're Tom Thumb. No, go on, bloody well do it. You're Tom Thumb, you are, and you love your family very much. So much in fact, that you've bought a digital photo frame to display all your most treasured memories. Life is good for you, Tom Thumb.

But wait, what's this? Some arsehole has gone and glued your photo frame on the side of a plastic drinking mug. What the christing hell are you meant to do with that? Your photos are too far away to see and the mug is too big to hold. Why God, why?

Imagine you're you. Much easier, this one. You want a poorly presented coffee mug-beaker thing. You find one, this one, and it's everything you were hoping for.

But wait, what's this? Some arsehole has gone and glued a miniscule digital photo frame on the side. Not only does it make gripping the beaker near-impossible, but the images are so small you'd have to be Tom Thumb to see them. What the christing hell are you meant to do with that? Why God, why?

It really is rubbish, isn't it?

    Put an rrp of £49.99 on it, but sell them for £9.99 (80% off!), post an ad on hukd and you will have a sure fire winner.

    I like the concept, I'm in with £10,000, and the box has a striking resemblence to an arcade machine to boot, so while you're sipping your Jack 'n' Coke, and admiring the photos of your missues displaying her... 'James Blunt', you can imagine yourself defeating Zorg on level 9 of Blastroids, that's value in my book.

    @Louise "Wonder if its dishwasher safe!!" I don't see why not, If the cow breaks it, she can buy a new one.
