OMG Facts The truly lazy are often the most creative. Like this developer, who was caught outsourcing his entire job to China so that he could spend his time at work… not working. The ruse — highlighted in a Verizon case study — was carried out by an employee called “Bob” who worked at an anonymous “critical infrastructure company”.

HTC 7 Mozart Extensive First Impressions + Contest Announcement « The Technoclast At the HTC Windows Phone 7 Workshop last month, we were introduced to a sleek-looking WP7 device – it was the HTC 7 Mozart.
