Galaxy Tab’s Being Shipped with P0rn Button to Dracula Country

News has reached me that some of Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs are being shipped with a ‘Porn’ button instead of ‘Home’.

OK, so it’s not actually a button, it’s the legend for an icon, and it isn’t exactly Porn, but rather “Porn.”, but yes, it’s still funny.

The hilarity is caused because “Pornire” in Romanian means “Start.” (the noun, not the verb) and some bright spark/practical joker at Samsung decided there wasn’t enough space for the whole word beneath the house icon, so went and abbreviated it. Hence, “Porn.”.

Perhaps translating “home” to Romanian, which is “acasa” would’ve been safer?

I wonder how many English speakers will try to import one of these? 😉
