Meh

Meh, whatever. It could well be the flat, synthetic voice but I did not find it amusing, interesting, funny or otherwise. Now, if the phrases -- many of which are local to particular countries/areas/etc -- were properly "announced" in native, colorful fashion you'd have my interest.

"The Word Fuck" is funny and a total classic not because of what it says but because of who says it and how. This one: maybe good for a prepubescent giggle.

Clarification

I would like to make it perfectly clear that the swearotron is not a relation of mine

Aren't artists supposed to *create* stuff?

Not just rehash some tired old idea that's been around since the era of AOL and Netscape. This isn't "Modern" toss, it's decade-old tired stale reheated unimaginative toss.

Re: rehashing some tired old idea

Perhaps it is the same use of the word "modern" that we find in "modern art". It expands roughly to "This probably *has* been done before, but it is either derivative or simply not very good and in the past it would have been overshadowed by the works of someone with genuine talent".

or perhaps it mirrors "modern art"

in that it appears to be the work of a 5 year old, or Paris.

Wow, a new low in boredom

This is neither funny nor art IMHO. Your average 6 year old may not achieve the same professional finish by using buttons, but from a concept it does' really get much beyond that age. Just slapping "periodic table" on something boring isn't improving it.

But then again, nobody pays me for my unmade bed. Probably because it's not such a disgusting mess as certain *cough* "artists" can make of it..

Voice should have been Emma Clarke

Would have been much better with Emma Clarke instead of Mr Generic. Emma was the voice behind all the London Underground announcements before being sacked by them after a newspaper misquoted her (they said that she found travelling on the underground unpleasant at rush hour, heaven forbid!)

Craig 12..

Android Modern toss.. (use the search, it's easier... )

reviews on site..

" Just a bit of a problem firing the swears from the full table. Doesn't seem to activate unless you hit on the words."

" Pretty buggy. Even the link to the feedback page doesn't work, hence my leaving this here..."

IF it was free, ad supported. I would try it... but not worth the pennies, when I will dump it when I get bored with it... :(
