Another trip to the iLoo

Boy this must belong to the "there's no such thing as bad publicity" category. A quick sequence review is in order:
Step 1 - Put out a press release about a crappy product - everyone laughs at you.
Step 2 - Claim that the press release is a April Fool's hoax even though it was release in May - everyone laughs at you.
Step 3 - Recant the hoax claim and claim that it was marketing strategy - everyone looks really confused.

That's right. Apparently the iLoo is/was/might be real. The recant of the hoax (which happened between when the previous article was written and when it was posted) story is being carried on a number of web sites including: Wired News, The Register, and News is Crappy. Also see another article on The Register.

Can we just all agree that Microslash iLoo stinks and get on with it?
