Windows 8 slammed by tequila

Take an average user, a bottle of tequila and opening Windows 8 for the first time. Mix well.

Take an average user, a bottle of tequila and opening Windows 8 for the first time. Mix well.

According to Three Sheets Research, companies are ignoring a very important market segment: drunk people. Ever called up estranged friends at 3am to tell them what you really think? Or those ill-advised emails that you really oughtn't to be sending to your boss? Or those days when a bulk package of those little plastic animals that go in cocktails arrives in your mailbox, and you have absolutely no recollection of ordering them from eBay for $10?

But the fact is, tech can be a little confusing when you suddenly have double vision and an extra seven fingers — as this video by Three Sheets demonstrates. The tester is Jennifer, a 40-year-old mother of two and self-confessed cyborg who's connected to her computer "all the time".

Add a bit of tequila and Windows 8 into the mix, though, and things take a definite turn for the downright mystifying.
