The Daily Mail reports on a new “slimcam” setting on the new HP Photosmart R727 being marketed to women.
The ‘slimcam setting’ on the gadget uses high-tech digital trickery to shave a few inches off its subject. Marketed at women, the feature squeezes the picture in the middle, so the main object in focus looks thinner – but its surroundings are left unchanged.
It is believed the setting on the HP Photosmart R727, on sale at Comet, could give women the appearance of having lost a dress size.
Oh and BIG SHOCK, Tobacco companies deceived smokers! Good golly no! Next thing they’ll prove that standing around and holding (but not drinking) alcohol doesn’t make you cool, clever, slim or cute just like in all those commercials.
