Well, that may be so but this is equally true: there is always some more stupid than the last media/press person you pointed out.
Take this retractable cup holder built into an iPhone case. When I first saw the headline and briefly glanced at the picture, I immediately move on. I thought it was the stupidest thing ever. I didn't know if it was even real or just a concept to gauge interests in the thing.
According to techdirt, our Los Angeles Times write a serious piece about it. But the thing is if they had taken even a moment to Google it, they would have known right away this "uppercup" thing was a joke. A joke.
Like "ha-ha". The posts are still there if you want to read just how stupid some of these writers/reporters are.
