I just blogged about the Segway, and now that I’m poking around their site, I realize how truly lame their technology is. There’s a section on their site where you’re supposed to put in your address and they’ll show you how much more distance you can cover by using a Segway as opposed to walking. So I put in my address and two little maps pop up. The first map is supposed to show me how far I would get after traveling on foot for 20 minutes. The star on the map is right where my house should be, so I guess I didn’t get anywhere in 20 minutes. The second map is supposed to show me how far I would get after traveling on a Segway for 20 minutes. After careful examination, I realize that it is the exact same map, just zoomed about a bit. The star is in the exact same place on the Segway map as it is on the “travel on foot” map.
Actually, now that I think about it, this website is quite accurate. I never travel anywhere on foot, opting to drive, get a ride, or catch the bus instead. Furthermore, I would never own a Segway, which I have deemed to be stupid, useless, and a future bane to our society. So, in fact, if I ever had to leave the house, it would not be using one of those two options, therefore the stars on those two maps are, quite accurately, over my house.0 People like this.
