Press it or don’t press it, at least you know what/where it is.
If this turns out to be the starter button for the Large Hadron Collider we are so f##ked.
What’s below? Big Button?
Actually, this is the opposite of “Oddly Specific”, more like “Strangely Generic”. Or maybe, “Generically Stupid”.
No, this definitely qualifies as oddly specific.
You shouldn’t have to label a button with the word: “Button.” It should be obvious what it is. Why it isn’t labeled with a descriptor for the button’s function is beside the point.
I’m amusing the red thing below the edge of the frame is a dial, or perhaps a display or window of some sort.
“Please place the weighted storage cube on the 1500 megawatt aperture sience heavy duty supercolliding super button. Please note that you will not receive bacon as a reward.”
Reminds me of the elevator remote control at my aunt’s house. My uncle put a little red sticker on it to show which side is the correct one (there are two buttons). Naturally, my mom tried to press the sticker. Maybe it should have been labeled “sticker” and the button “button” and then I wouldn’t have had to climb the stairs.
I used to work the Guest Service desk at Target. This button is found on most Gift Registry kiosks. The red at the bottom of the pic is a track-ball on the keyboard to move the cursor around the screen. The button works as a left-click would on a mouse. Sadly, most people I would help use the kiosks could not find the button….
It’s a delicious piece of red candy. Eat it.
Useless fact: This is the mouse button for the public kiosks at some Target stores. The object almost out of frame is a “roller-ball” to move the cursor. Even though the button is labeled (button – heh), most people can’t seem to grasp the concept that this is the replacement for a mouse click.
And here I thought this was the inspiration for the classic children’s game “Button Button, who’s got the button?”
@ Red_n_Khaki & qtpiekira – I understand that Target is trying to flip more clientèle from Walmart, but at what cost?
@skeptic: awesome. just. godawesome.
Apparently the cost is job titles and small raises.
If I found this button I’d have to add “of DOOM” to it.
The Shiney Red CANDYLIKE Button!!!! What does it do? You’ll Never Know! CAUSE YOUR GOING TO GUARD IT!!
Anyone else notice that the red thing below it glows, perhaps that is the power button for HAL 9000, man that would have been easier than pulling alll those memory circuits out
I can see that. now wat does it do? make a little voice tell u the history of buttons?
yea this is actually from a target, i took this pic a while ago and posted it on failblog
You may know where it is, but you don’t know how fast it is going.
its the pointless button
The button is on a computer in Target. It is where you can look at their online flier and the thing below is the trackball. The “Button” button is the equivalent of the left mouse button on a computer mouse.
“Thank you for pressing the self-destruct button. Prepare to die.”
