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 itâ€™s not actually a button, itâ€™s the legend for an icon, and it isnâ€™t exactly Porn, but rather â€œPorn.â€, but yes, itâ€™s still funny.
The hilarity is caused because â€œPornireâ€ in Romanian means â€œStart.â€ (the noun, not the verb) and some bright spark/practical joker at Samsung decided there wasnâ€™t enough space for the whole word beneath the house icon, so went and abbreviated it. Hence, â€œPorn.â€.
Perhaps translating â€œhomeâ€ to Romanian, which is â€œacasaâ€ would’ve been safer?
I wonder how many English speakers will try to import one of these? 😉
