    Why does this Dilbert sketch remind me of BETT 2009?

    Why does this Dilbert sketch remind me of BETT 2009?-151907.strip.gif

    Extra brownie points will be awarded to the person who can remember whose 'child proof' tablet failed the drop test from 6 inches above the ground, and credit given to those who can name the tablet manufacturer whose ruggedised F1 pit tablet that was getting thrown around over great distances with zero damage.

    Now the tablets from [blanked out name] were fun ... and they *seemed* indestructible until someone tried to take the battery out and it couldn't be put back in!

    I would guess at RM for the un-child proof tablet and go with HP for the ruggedised one.

    As RM has been guessed, I go with Viglen for the un childproof tablet, and Acer for the other

    I can't remember who made either

    ..but the one exploding after being gently lowered to the floor was to this day one of the funniest things I've ever seen

    As Mike pointed out, I think the laughing prevented any kind of picture taking.
