Google Blinds

A guy by the name of Mr. Schofield got some custom wooden window blinds all with logos from different websites – like Digg, StumbleUpon, Facebook, and yes, also Google and YouTube. According to the story told by the blinds maker Nets2Go, his wife did not approve of the choice though:

The sting in the story’s tail? 2 weeks after the blinds were delivered, Mr Schofield regrettably separated from his wife.

“It was coming anyway”, Mr Schofield told us, “but my design choice for the blinds was pretty much the nail in the coffin. She doesn’t understand the intense geek in me. And anyway, the only one she’d even heard of was Youtube”

As parts of this story sound a bit unlikely, I contacted Nets2Go yesterday to ask if all this was true, but haven’t heard back from them yet.
