Microsoft Ad Campaign Puts a Hotspot Inside a Magazine 194

An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft is putting in real Wi-Fi hardware hotspots inside some copies of the latest issue of Forbes magazine. The unique Office 365 promotion was revealed in a post on the Slickdeals.net message board. The WiFi router, when activated, offers 15 days of free WiFi service via T-Mobile's network on up to five devices at once." Which is more impressive: Wi-Fi hotspot in 2013, or E-ink display in 2008?

    The problem today is the insane number of people who scour the planet looking for ways in which to be offended.

    What's troll-y is claiming that you don't see how that language could annoy anyone. There is a perfectly suitable gender-neutral word that makes exactly the same point. It's 2013 ffs.

    When I read stuff like "stewardess", I think old-timer or non-native-English speaker.

    And yes I realize this is /. and /. is not know for being a bastion of progressive thought on gender and bias. But sometimes I get annoyed at careless crap like the above and attempt to piss into the wind. Sue me.

    No one's going to sue you, cupcake. Just be a dear and make me a sandwich, hmmm?
