Office 365 - We have your data !

Woke up to this today. An email from Microsoft regarding Office 365: "We hope you had an opportunity to explore all the rich features and functionality of your Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise E3 (TechNet). You can continue offering these services to your business by purchasing a subscription today. If you buy within the next 30 days, all of the data and customizations made during your trial will be preserved."

WWDC 2014: Apple introduces - Swift Programming Language

Apple introduces new programming language, "Swift".

Swift is an innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.

TV: Hello Ladies w/Stephan Merchant

Life just ended for me ;-) Just found out today that Stephan Merchant did a show called, "Hello Ladies". Where he plays a nerdy IT character by the name of Stuart. Even worse, the show got cancelled.

Interview: ThoughtWorks - We hate LGBT projects.

Well I interviewed for ThoughtWorks. After 1 hour of pretty much the most boring conversation I have ever had in my life it was over. The other person kept saying, "I am not listening". From one example, [the worst example] of interviewing he says, "We are an ethical company and only take on certain projects. That's why we didn't take on the LGBT project". WOW! There's a company you want to work for, NOT! Action-item ? Remove all ThoughtWorks software. Done.
