Ironic: EFF Blocked by Work Web Filter

June 19, 2010

Look what my work’s internet filter blocks:

As their website states (where you can actually load it), “The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the leading civil liberties group defending your rights in the digital world.”  Because we wouldn’t want employees at work to access anything about their digital rights…

Panera Bread iMac World of Warcraft Player

January 29, 2010

People are weird.

I couldn’t help but look at the article on Gizmodo.com entitled Five Questions With Panera Bread iMac Man.  I’d seen the story floating around for about a month.  The Panera Bread reference in the title caught my eye, as it’s a local success story as a restaurant chain called St. Louis Bread Company that expanded nationally as Panera Bread.  Then when I saw the picture, and the guy was playing World of Warcraft, I was hooked.  But no one had asked him the burning question: why?

According to this week’s Gizmodo article, James the Panera Bread iMac Man says he goes there to use their internet connection because he doesn’t have one at home.  He doesn’t say he can’t get one at home, so you have to wonder.  He’s drinking coffee, and I assume he buys something each time he goes.  He’s playing an MMO, which has a monthly subscription fee.  He has a 20″ iMac, which wasn’t cheap and is fairly heavy (I know, I have one).  He has an iLugger bag to carry the iMac around in, which goes for about 80 bucks.  But he can’t pay for an internet connection at home??

There has to be more to this story.  He can’t physically get internet at his home?  He’s desperately trying to avoid his wife?  He lives alone and just wants to be around people?  We need 5 more questions!!

Or just chalk it up to the fact that people are weird.

Get An Ad

January 20, 2010

AdFreak.com has compiled links to videos of every “Get A Mac” ad ever aired in the U.S. since the campaign’s inception in 2006.  They haven’t aired a new one since October so this may well be the complete campaign.  Apple’s website has quite a few of these but not every single one.

Even though Windows 7 seems like a big step in the right direction for Microsoft, I still love saying “Windows 7 won’t have any of the problems that Windows Vista had…” or similar when I’m using one of my myriad of problematic work computers (from ad #64).  Check them out!
