The Microsoft iPod

This video made my day:

Try to imagine what would happen if Microsoft redesigns the iPod packaging:
Maybe it’s because I’m also in the I.T. industry, but the plot line sounds SO much familiar…

Instead of KISS (keeping it simple, stupid), our managers usually insist we put ALL the information on our specs, and convulate the packaging (spoken like a true Chinese, they usually think empty space is a waste of space).

As a result, some of our boxes look like Microsoft’s version!

Regardless, I appreciate good humor such as this. Made by Microsoft employees themselves, it’s nice to see that the behomoth company knows how to at least make fun of themselves.

Make them look more human, I guess. 🙂


Last night was part 2 of packing.

So far, I have 4 boxes filled, and another one on the way: 1 each for books/DVD, jackets/jeans, the expensive NT$73,000 vase I won in a raffle, dresses/skirts and shirts.

Sigh, today’s the last day to pack, hope I get it done in time.

That’s what you get for taking a break and having drinks with French Cutie. He took me to one of his fave hangouts, Peacock, at Shida Road where he ordered a glass of mango lassi, and yours truly a Bailey’s Coffee.

Oh well, the short break was worth it. 🙂

Oh, and for the weekend, if you’re in Taipei, don’t forget to drop by Grandma Nittis this Sunday for their rummage sale for Animals in Taiwan. The sale starts from 5PM to 9PM and I assure you that you can get cheap bargains there!

Hope I’m able to drop by as well — found a lot of lovely stuff last weekend. 😉

Pirates of the Carribean 2 this weekend! Wahoooooo!

So enjoy and have a great weekend!

About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
