Schadenfreude (from Juicero)

I learnt a new word today. Schadenfreude. It is borrowed from German, it seems. No surprises there, those guys have words for everything. Schadenfreude means pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune.  And I read it here, an article about the juicer debacle last week.  It’s the story of how somebody raised 120 million to make and sell what was a simple mechanical press, and all it could do was press juice out of packets. I thought these smart investors are hard to impress, apparently they will fall for anything, if its connected to the internet. Check this out:
