If Steve Jobs was still alive he'd totally be wearing this 3-decade-old watch


You just can't beat a classic.

Japanese manufacturer Seiko recently announced plans to re-release a version of its vintage 1980s Chariot model timepiece. 


That just so happens to be the same watch that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is pictured wearing in an iconic 1984 Norman Seeff photograph, which later graced the cover of Time Magazine.

And let's be totally real here: If Jobs were still alive today he'd likely prefer this three-decade-old wrist watch to the current Apple Watch. Why? It's all about simplicity.

"That's been one of my mantras focus and simplicity," Jobs observed in a 1998 interview with Business Week. "Simple can be harder than complex: 
You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains."

By that metric, the Chariot is leaps and bounds ahead of the Apple Watch — which, by all accounts, has yet to move any mountains. 

Unless you count all the lithium mined for the watches' batteries, that is.
After all, what's simpler than a watch that refuses to do anything other than tell the time?

So how to get your hands on one of these ¥20,000 ($177) beauties? First, act fast. According to The Verge, Seiko plans to sell only 2,282 of them starting March 10. 

Of those, 1,982 will have the original white face. Also (and here's where it gets tricky) the company is only selling them in Japan.

Considering that Jobs was reportedly obsessed with the country, however, we don't think that would've stopped him were he still alive today.

The New Shoe Syndrome - Lol

The feeling of wearing new shoes to work for me, is synonymous to being served the best part of the seasoned grilled turkey on thanksgiving day. It feels gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddd!!!!

These pair of new shoes has redefined my walking this morning. I plan not to sit at my desk today during lunch break. With the least opportunity, I will parade myself through the office from the seventh floor down to the reception in order to display my shoes and my new walk. Yes, new walk! I always have a new walk when I wear new shoes, call me the office "Heidi Klum".

The "ohh nice shoes', "where did you get it", "which brand" comments from my colleagues, clients and visitors is what I'm fantastically awaiting to hear throughout the day whilst I carry on with my duties and humming to Beyonce's "I'm feeling myself" song. Call it multitasking😉😎

What new apparel do you have on today?...common share with us.

How to get a Day off from Work

Woman: I can make the boss give me the day off.

Man: And how would you do that?

Woman: "Just wait and see''. She then hangs upside-down from the ceiling.

Boss comes in: What are you doing?

Woman: I'm the light bulb.

Boss: You've been working so much that you've gone crazy. I think you need to take the day off.

The man started to follow her and the boss asks: Where are you going?

Man: I'm going home, too. I can't work …

Secret Santa!

Let's cut the pretense, you didn't like the present you received!! Did you? Lol

Once again, its that time of the year when we have to exchange gifts.
Prior to the day of the gifts exchange, I had to run through the mall searching for that perfect present. All the stores I run through didn't seem to have that one thing that could catch my "big eyes".wheewww! !who even instituted 'Office Secret Santa'! Shoes was number one on the list, followed by clutch then a dress since my Secret Santa was a lady.
Finally, I went for a nice purple clutch, wait! what if she doesn't like the color.....😩 The day finally approached, amidst eating, drinking and making merry the presents were handed out to their respective owners mixed with feelings of suspense and curiosity. Who is getting what, and from who.
Colleagues! Colleagues! ! Colleagues! ! ! how many times did I call you all, guess what i received upon all the running through the mall to get the best gift, lol. …
