I read a newspaper the other day ... yep, that's it
I got to work on Thursday with a breakfast sandwich and cup of coffee.
Turned on my computer and was getting ready to settle in with a quick run through email, iGoogle, rss feed updates while I enjoyed breakfast.
But what? Windows is updating No. 3 of 18. 18 updates were taking for-ever. So I snuck into the next office and picked up .. wait for it ... The New York Times.
Yes. I read the newspaper and ate my breakfast while I waited for Windows to get its act together.
I had glanced through a paper in September at a hotel in Montreal. And I check out the headlines when I go to Whole Foods every few weeks. But my news reading is all online on the Web or my phone these days.
It was fun. I may have read some stories I wouldn't have stumbled upon online. I'll probably do it again sometime ... when Windows needs to hijack my computer.
