Vodafone’s Otello draws a blank on Chancellor Angela Merkel query

Filed under:

If there’s one person at CeBIT you don’t want to not recognize, it’s German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Nevertheless, we can only assume that Vodafone booth workers were left with their tails stuck between their legs after said figure gave its recently announced picture-based search engine a go. Upon Otella returning nothing after a picture was presumably snapped of Merkel, she quickly asserted: “I am not in the database.” Better still, she continued by proclaiming: “That’s a major gap.” Heck, maybe she should be happy — after all, Vodafone’s set to trial the service with Europe’s “best selling tabloid,” and not being in there would most certainly be a good thing.
