Ebuyer in laptop search result outrage

Sony query offers tunnel of luuuurv

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Updated Anyone on the lookout for a Sony Vaio VGN-FS315S laptop should - if they are of a sensitive disposition - avoid checking out Ebuyer for said kit. Why? Well, it's not just that Ebuyer doesn't appear to have the required equipment, but that the suggested alternative is enough to have you choking on your cocoa:

Ebuyer offers a juicy alternative

To enjoy this search result in full, you'll have to enter "VGN-FS315S" and then try in "PC's/Displays" [sic]. Yes that's right, not only is Ebuyer punting filth to unsuspecting computer buyers, but it also has a nasty case of greengrocer's apostrophe - something we though had been eradicated in the late 1990's 1990s.

One question therefore remains: vagina's what exactly? I think we should be told. ®

Update

This just in (14:52 GMT) from Chris Haynes:

Looks like eBuyer got wind of your story, and removed the offending suggestion.

They also tidied up their spelling of PCs.

Bless...

Bless indeed. Another blow struck for common decency and decent punctuation.

Bootnote

A big juicy ta very much to Stuart Mains for sharing this shocker with us.
