UPDATE: Razer forced to apologize 🙁
We apologize for the SD reader joke. To those who were offended, it was intended as a lighthearted turn of phrase that missed the mark.

Razer, known for its gaming computers, took umbrage with Apple’s use of the term “pro” and sought to take a dig at the tech giant.
Pearl-clutchers on the internet were quick to take offensive at naughty words they were forced to think about.

While the tweet pissed off many, Razer may have opened a new frontier in tech marketing. Maybe Apple will respond and tell Razer to drink bleach. Sony can tweet at Microsoft that they’re worse than Ghostbusters. And Dell will finally tell Asus what they really think of Asus’ mom.
It would be glorious. And at least Razer’s not backing down and apologizing.
