It has just occurred to me that my current frustration with my job would probably be improved if I watched Office Space. It wouldn't change anything at work, but at least I could have a few laughs and know that people out there relate to my situation. In the mean time, here's a sweet song using clips and audio from Office Space.

Hate to break it to you +Mike Elgan​, but Apple isnt the most successful company in history. That would be the Dutch East India Company with a market value an order of magnitude bigger than Apple's. If Apple keeps this up for another 150 years, then maybe you'll be right.
 
Here's my 11 reasons why Apple is the most successful company in history.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/hY6jbE )

Everyone knows that Apple had a great fourth quarter and that its most successful product line, the iPhone, is doing better than ever, too.

But it's difficult to grasp what a mind-blowingly successful company Apple is until you take the time to gather and digest news about the company that has emerged in the past week or two.

I've done it. And it has become obvious to me that Apple is not only successful, not only the most successful company in technology, not only the most successful company in the world but the most successful company in the history of companies.

Is that an extreme statement? Maybe. But let me make my case, and we'll see if you disagree.

Here are the 11 ways that Apple is the most successful company in history:

The VOC even weathered dot-tulips. That is staying power. Unfortunately, their poor 18th Century ERP system would be their undoing.

Anyone want some Jeff Bridges sleeping tapes? They are as crazy as you would imagine. 
Jeff Bridges' new album is on his new Squarespace site. Give the tracks a listen on DreamingWithJeff.com and you’ll sleep better tonight.

There's no way I could sleep with any of that on. I will play it in the office at work though!

You are a life saver! I've never really used ranges, just manually hand jammed everything in. I don't have very complex uses, so it hasn't really ever been an issue. I decided to color code a spreadsheet with all of my bills, so that I could see which bills were due before the next pay day. It was enough of a pain entering them all manually that I decided to learn ranges, but didn't realize how absolutes worked. I've been going round and round for awhile now! I would have been better off just entering them all in manually by now, but even if it was wasting time, I now wanted to learn how to do it! Thanks for saving my sanity! It's hard to Google for a solution to your problem when you don't know what the problem is or the terminology.

I had a small amount of air miles that were going to expire recently, and the only thing cheap enough to use them on was magazine subscriptions. I signed up for a few different ones, including SI. Just got the swimsuit edition and was wondering the same. How is this still a thing? I was super excited about the issue when I was a 12 year old. Is that who buys them now? I would have assumed they just use Google.

This is amazing! Watch the video too!
 
Dear nature: WTF?

Yes, this is a snake whose tail looks like a spider. It's called, naturally enough, the spider-tailed snake, and it uses a combination of this tail and some exceptional camouflage to lure in birds and eat them. You can watch its hunting in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CjtQOc9euU

This has been your disturbing science for the day.

Introduction
I'm just like this guy, you know? I'm a geek/nerd. I like technology, computers, smart phones, and video games. I'm happily married to a wonderful, beautiful woman. I have two kids, my daughter is nine, and my son is seven. I love spending time with my family; they are my everything.

I'm currently spreading my time between family, work, school (working on my BS CS software emphasis), video games, and technology/gadgets. If you see me looking down, I'm probably fossil hunting. You can expect me to post things about those topics. I personally use Chrome OS, Android, and Windows, but I also work with Linux and Unix. You can expect me to talk about those things as well.

I'm hopelessly optimistic about the future and the positive affect that technology will have on our lives. I'm also hopelessly unable to distinguish the difference between affect and effect, and when you should use one or the other. This may affect some people more than others.
