And The Winner Is....

Microsoft - wins the WTF Award for July. Hey, they must be used to these by now. Their most current victory is for the following spate of nonsense, on the cover of the booklet inserted with their wireless keyboard and mouse -
"Health warning, Use of a keyboard or pointing device may be linked to serious injuries or disorders.

Oh-kay...so if I chop my foot off while gardening, I should definitely see a doctor. Right? Right. Thanks for clearing that up for me, Bill.
