These tech-centric jokes,
song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and
websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly
offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
The July 15, 2014, Dilbert comic strip features
the CEO of his company suggesting that they figure out a way to insert ad images
into "that little spot" that stays in your vision for a few seconds after someone
takes your picture using a camera flash. I wonder whether creator Scott Adams realizes
that he might have come up with a patentable idea? Too late. By now the folks at
Google or Apple have seen today's strip and have their staff patent lawyers frantically
generating applications as I write this.
advertising has been around for a long time, and it might even be illegal in
some countries, but it is not illegal in the United States of America. The Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) does have a policy to revoke the license of any commercial
station using it. It might be too late to build the camera flash advertisement feature
into the iPhone6, but look for it (in "that little spot") to be part of iPhone 7
and/or in the Google Nexus 6.
