HIJINKS HUMAN ERROR NEGLECT/MISUSE NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE RAGE

"I have tried to change one of the pieces by hitting it with a hammer"

That swing looks too high as well. Did you have to make the rope “fit” with a knife? And should it be sitting over concrete slabs like that? We’re no experts in child safety, but we can imagine seeing this scene in black and white in a local newspaper, two days after some sort of head/neck/spine tragedy has unfolded.

NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE RAGE

"GREAT BUNDLE FOR SOMEONE!"

xbox-controllers

Well, if we imagine there’s an infinite number of people out there with an infinite number of differing technological requirements, then yes, we have to assume there will indeed be a person for whom 37 broken, third-party, first-generation Xbox controllers is a DREAM COME TRUE.

NEGLECT/MISUSE NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE

A bit "bronken"?

“ipad 32gb bronken”

Our first ipad! Courtesy of (who else but) serial submitter “Hoopy”

“Here i am selling a broken ipad.”

Yes. Here you are, “Ian Holmes 2010”.
Selling a broken ipad.
Have you no shame?

“it is brand new in the box”

NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE UNKNOWN INCIDENT

"few minor surface scratches overall 9/10"


Oooh, our very first Kindle! Thanks “Tinman”!
[opens wrapping]
Oooh, this is going to be great, I’ve wanted one of these for so lon…
Oh.

“I received the kindle like this so can not say how the damage occurred.”

And you didn’t immediately return it because…?
Nope, I guess this is destined to be yet another one of the great mysteries of the world.

“I am selling this as faulty”

Yeah, I think you’d have to really, wouldn’t you?
Or send it back for a refund/replacement.
Or just throw it away.
So many options in fact, but you chose the ‘sell as faulty’ option.
Oh well.

“The kindles screen is broken.”

Oh well, that’s hardly a vital component, there’s so much else you can use them for, isn’t there?
Unlike boring old books! Cuh!
No, give me a minute, I’m bound to think of another use.

“I can say that all the buttons and the bottom left part of the screen works as it should.”

Oh yes, there’s one, you can press all the buttons on it.
Can’t do that with a book, can you? read more »

NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE

"Almost compatible with all the ipad versions"


Thanks to eagle-eyed reader “Paul H” who spotted this oddity – He was apparently “Looking for an apple Ipad camera connector kit for out and about blogging, when I stumbled upon this gem”

“The latest version!
Works on iPad2”

Unlike the one in the picture then?
Seeing as that’s got an error message on it, stating:

“The inserted USB Device is Not Supported
(Dismiss)”

“Not broken but may as well be…Surely this fits in somewhere……..” asks Paul.
You’re right Paul, it probably fits somewhere, just not in an iPad by the looks of it.

Almost compatible with all the ipad versions”

Oh well that’s comforting.
