The most retarded product ever

Post by Cornfed » March 28th, 2018, 6:33 am

Well it is in the running - the Juicero. Google invested $120M in developing this. Their diversity hiring program seems to be having a profound effect.



The company collapsed already.

Something this idiotic could only come from Silicon Valley. Even the most primitive black African tribe would recognize that this is absurd.

Here is an update on the genius behind this product:

Not that different from the hundreds of bogus ICO's around.

At least Juicero's juice doesn't stink like s*it...

How do they profit from these scams? Given that surely no-one is dumb enough to actually fall for them, is it a case of money laundering?

Maybe. It's mostly a case of "sophisticated investors" looking to make a quick buck with the hype du jour. Blockchain is a foundational technology and is here to stay. As for the crypto bandwagon, only maybe 5% of the coins created so far will make it to 2019. I do believe the Bitcoin/Ethereum craze of a few months ago was a massive inflation + profit taking exercise, the biggest of the past few decades.

The "black guy" being yourself. Can you spare us the trolling at least, Palo Alto? We all know it's all in your mind. Go back to your boxes and leave us alone.
