For the past few minutes, I've happily translated messages about the wireless keyboard and mouse working or not working properly - nothing taxing - when I spotted a rather different wireless device, one that I personally had never come across. While trying to imagine what it might look like in real life, I hooted so madly with laughter that my partner came running into the room thinking I had finally lost the plot. So what was this mysterious device? See for yourselves...

"The wireless moose is not functional."

good one :-) May 27, 2006

...and what about the moose pad? Should be rather large...

And did they say something about how to install the moose driver? Or does it have a moose wheel??? ))

Thanks for sharing !!!

All is as planned May 27, 2006

I'm sure that was put there intentionally to take the drudgery out of your translation work.

But then again... with all kinds of new computer toys appearing on the market every day, maybe this is something new...

Or are we really serious? Scroll down to the bottom of the product description.

Here's another product from the same company May 27, 2006

Hi Rebekka,

if you experience a moose failure, send a complaint via this protocol:

or as a company we both know once wrote, "Legen Sie die Maus auf den Rücken" (the external QA person was not amused).

Have a nice working weekend,

Thanks, both of them are great! Jun 1, 2006

But there is a tell-tale sign on the superbly written transmission by avian carriers; it is dated!
