image for Facebook release their own portable PC
A FaceFace user

Social networking giants Facebook have joined the PC market today, as they announced the release of a portable computer. The PC comes with only one application installed - a piece of software that allows the user to access the Facebook web page. It is not possible to install anything else, or to look at any other web sites.

Facebook founder Mark Suckerbug explained, "Most people spend 90% of the time on their computer checking Facebook. So by providing a computer which lets users do nothing else, we are increasing productivity by 10%."

Facebook are also releasing a total-immersion virtual reality helmet that lets users check Facebook whatever they are doing. Called the "FaceFace", it bombards the user's eyes with endless status updates and Farmville requests, rendering them unable to think of anything else. One lucky reviewer who tested it said it was "like being waterboarded".

A third product released by the company today is aimed at older users. It is a paper-based version of the website - a printer prints out status updates every 5 minutes and compiles them into a small booklet - this product is known as "BookBook". It is sure to please users who are uncomfortable with modern technology, allowing them to waste as much of their time on Facebook as everyone else.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
