The Boss Button for March Madness

Posted in business with tags , , , on March 22, 2009 by absurddelight

The Boss Button lets you follow March Madness live at your desk while appearing like a productive employee … one click and it looks like you are using an Excel spreadsheet.

What your work computer looks like to your employer, pre Boss Button

So here’s how it works. If you’re watching a game online at NCAA.com and your boss comes within sight of your screen, you hit the Boss Button (sponsored by Comcast, ha!).

Then the video screen  immediately turns into this:

Once danger is averted and you’ve demonstrated the patina of productivity to your superiors, a click anywhere on the “Spreadsheet” will bring the game back live.

Last year the Boss Button was clicked 2.5 Million times!

Download your own here for non-NCAA uses. These are far less interesting … more like “minimize all” buttons but hey, it shows you there’s a market for clandestine porn watching workplace accessories.
