New MacBooks

Yesterday, at a press event, Apple announced new restyled MacBooks and MacBook Pros. Many improvements have been incorporated into the new design and prices are in line with the old laptops. I won’t bore you with details. You could just visit the Apple Store online and see for yourself.

But in the scurry to get the announcements out world wide, Apple committed a faux pas. In their French ad, the Apple genius used an erroneous translation.

Apparently “parfaitement con” translates to “perfect idiot” in French. Nice goin’, guys. I wonder how long the ad was up before someone spotted the mistake.

There. I think that’s much better. The page has since been changed to read “parfaitement conçu”, or “perfectly designed”.

C’est la vie.
