The Liberal brand is really flogging a dead horse with their Abbott Clone range.
After spending a week trying to emulate the self-immolation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Liberals Inc are trying a product reset with their new Abbott Clone update entitled “ScoMo”.
The company did well in the late 90s and early 2000s with the “Howard”, a pioneering experiment with racist cyborg technology. Despite its successes in fanning the flames of white nationalism, a serious flaw with the “Howard” was the robot’s inability to imitate a human’s basic hand-eye co-ordination.
Their fortunes have nosedived since with the even more cack-handed “Abbott” and subsequent Abbott clones.
Although the Abbott made some early inroads into the market, it’s glitches were too much for Australian consumers to bear. Much like an old-fashioned record it would often get stuck in a loop on phrases like “stop the boats” or “axe the tax”, and sometimes it would even stop functioning altogether.
Since then the Abbott has been tweaked but to no avail. The “Turnbull” seemed more promising but It turned out to be riddled with malware, especially trojan viruses.
It seems the “Scomo” will suffer the same fate as the previous product failures, which is a relief because honestly, these Liberal products are a fucking health hazard.
