My former TechCrunch colleague Nik Cubrilovic has been on a roll lately.
He noticed, for example, how Apple is telling users to drive off a bridge.
His most recent tweet –
And sure enough, the project was cancelled due to lack of funding.
Cubrilovic tells me he bookmarked the original post on BoingBoing by author Glenn Fleishman and has checked in on it occasionally.
“I bookmarked it thinking if this fails, it is going to be hilarious,” he says.
And so it is.
Apologies to Fleishman and BoingBoing for pointing out the irony in this (and I remind myself of the Man In The Arena and that hey, at least he tried). But I think I’d even have to make fun of myself if this happened to me.
