IPod use at Microsoft

So I found out that I have to start attending this daily 12:30 call that I HATE attending....so I'm angry....so I'm taking a break. break = browse web, browse web = stuff gets posted on the blog

Wired article about Ipod use at Microsoft:
Hide Your IPod, Here Comes Bill

Microsoft's leafy corporate campus in Redmond, Washington, is beginning to look like the streets of New York, London and just about everywhere else: Wherever you go, white headphones dangle from peoples' ears.

To the growing frustration and annoyance of Microsoft's management, Apple Computer's iPod is wildly popular among Microsoft's workers.

"About 80 percent of Microsoft employees who have a portable music player have an iPod," said one source, a high-level manager who asked to remain anonymous. "It's pretty staggering."


So concerned is management, owning an iPod at Microsoft is beginning to become impolitic, the manager said. Employees are hiding their iPods by swapping the telltale white headphones for a less conspicuous pair.

"Some people are a bit concerned about being traitors, not supporting the company," he said. "They're a bit stealth about it."

I want to start using MSN and Yahoo Messenger here at work. And I wanna set my homepage to MSN or yahoo.
