It’s a bit late for an April Fools’ Day post, but it’s always nice to end a workweek with a little fun, don’t you think?
I’ve talked a lot about the drab look of enterprise applications. Most corporate-ware simply looks unfinished to me. I’m surprised by companies that will pay millions for fancy office space, but won’t spend a little extra to make their internal applications a little more pleasant to use.
But then I saw an article on Read Write Web reviewing an application that touted its battleship gray color scheme as a feature. No kidding: Waste company time without getting caught using FaceoffIM. It’s corporate camouflage in action!
Battleship gray, indeed. Why fight grim a corporate culture when you can employ a little subterfuge?
