Slow Computers Are the Only Reason We Still Get Breaks

Illustration for article titled Slow Computers Are the Only Reason We Still Get Breaks

In my pre-blogging profession, I used to love a good render. I'd add an extra light in After Effects or filter in Final Cut, hit Apple+R, and sip coffee while processors did my bidding.

I'd consider how exhausting work would be should computers ever keep up with the computational demands of my workflow.

Well now that I just type all day with some light Photoshop work, my computer can and does keep up with my workflow. In fact, most of the time, it's sitting here waiting on me. And my damn internet connection never goes down, ever—even if it did, I could just use a 3G card or run over to a Starbucks.

You know, the more I thought of this the more I wanted to point out that the people who actually get (abuse) breaks are the smokers. Outside every 30 mins to suck down some nicoteine. As a former smoker, I understand addiction, but I also understand slacking and thats what is going on. Why cant we fix it? The CEO is out there smoking with them. If I want a break I need to start smoking again....

Before you say Giz is my break, I actually read Giz for work reasons.
