Corporate Hygiene

To go along with my previous post about companies that own me, I found out that another company has seemed to take over my… bathroom. Yes, you heard me. Phillips currently controls a large part of my personal hygiene. The Sonicare that I love so dearly is Phillips and that Norelco shaver… yea Phillips too. Here’s to you Phillips. Thanks for your dedication to improving my personal hygiene.

In case you are interested, here is my current Phillips tag team setup. I got this new Norelco shaver that comes with some crazy washing system off of Amazon for $50 (looks like they already raised the price though…).

Google Sucker

I realized today that I am a Google sucker… they pretty much own a good portion of my life (at least the data part that is). I took a look around this morning at what I was spending my time doing and I have subconsciously allowed Google to infiltrate my life. Here is my breakdown:

Email: I use gmail and don’t plan on changing any time soon. It is a little scary how Google owns all of my emails on their server and are parsing them to potentially figure something about me that I didn’t even realize.

Calendar: I don’t use gcaledar that much but I do have a few events on their. I use it mostly to keep track of my personal life rather than work, but again, they might have some ape pattern recognition running to figure out what particular activities I enjoy and who I do them with…

Groups: cptfunclub is pretty invaluable these days to keep up with the folks from cpt… and how else would it be possible to share stupid video links and talk trash at work.

Search: a no brainer and now throw in desktop search WITH the Google sidebar.

Reader: My chosen blog RSS reader… to keep up with the fast lives of many of my friends.

Analytics: Just installed this morning to track how little traffic I get to my site…

Maps: another no brainer… although, I do like Yahoo’s new beta. Google Earth is amazing BUT I never really use it.

Pictures: Picasa is pretty awesome. It works for me.

How much of your data does Google own?

More time wasted

Got this site from Michelle. I wasted quite a bit of time here…. you can too.

My top 3:
1. Zhang Ziyi – 73%
2. Lucy Liu – 71%
3. Ichiro Suzuki – 63%

I thought it might be the picture, but these three always seem to pop up on top of the list. I guess I have feminine facial features? The ultimate test would be to ask Zhang Ziyi (or any other celebrity in their database) to use the website and see if she would match 100% to herself. I would expect at least something higher than 73%… otherwise, this thing is whack.

Also, on a random note.. my favorite new jam is Crazy by Gnarls Barkley. HA HA HA Bless your soul…!
