Tricking the boss

Cricket Australia has an application on its homepage that allows cricket fans the option to keep up to date with a dummy excel spreadsheet that automatically updates the scores. Ingenious? Perhaps but most trading offices one frequents in finance (at least in Australia) broadcast the sports on TV, next to market moving monitors of course!

It was only a decade ago when companies tried to ban the use of Hotmail inside the office, hopefully limiting staff and their ability to converse with head hunters. As nearly everyone is armed with a smart phone these days makes sense to give (not take) everyone access to any sight they wish on the office PC. At least that way IT could track down productivity reports. Imagine your 6 monthly review. “Smith, your activity on Facebook is down 35% over the previous half…but you did promote our dullest products  to a client via Instagram so we’re paying you an extra bonus”
