It was almost exactly a year ago that we wrote about the Googlle Institute of Software Studies, a cleverly-named online university based out of India. After our post on the institution offering students such degrees as a “GCPA” — Googlle Certified Professional in Advanced Computing — it didn’t take long for the website of the school to be shut down. But the person who originally tipped us off to those shenanigans is now back with another fun one. And apparently, it’s based out of the same city in India.
Say hello to the “Hostel Microsoft”.
Near a place known as “Badarad Britcolony”, Hostel Microsoft apparently offers separate blocks and campuses for ladies and gents. It’s apparently a hostel with some 50 beds in it. It also has some residence blocks, whatever that means. And it’s opening in the beginning of January.
While it doesn’t appear from the sign that they’re offering any type of bogus degree like the Googlle Institute, they are more directly ripping off the name of a worldwide technology company. (We’re assuming, of course, that Microsoft isn’t actually opening a hostel in India.)
That sign coming down in 5, 4, 3,….
