    I think they did it on purpose to see how many people commented on it.

    As if I would - anyway, it wasn't me that mentioned a stand at all. Quite frankly, there were too many typos to mention which made me very sad

    I'm sure a strongly worded, and grammatically correct, letter is in order.

    Groupcall also had a typo in their stand artwork.

    One of the lines included "oft heir"

    Sounds about right.


    Das EDIT: Thinking about it, it sounds a bit sarcastic.


    Like if [company] came to look at the DIY touch table and were impressed [surprise] with it, but insisted that their version is still better [bias].

    Or testing an iDevice, commenting on excellent build quality and responsiveness but then bemoaning lack of flash support and concluding the MS Surface is better...
