This just in: Americans like classic rock and working naked

By August 29, 2012

Follow me on:

Yeah, that fits. Classic rock and working naked just seem to be a natural fit somehow.

Actual research from an actual company, Wakefield Research, is quite revealing (pun intended) on two separate but related issues, both having to do with cloud computing (which most of us do without even realizing it if we use Facebook or do our banking online, that sort of thing.)

Asked who they would be most likely to listen to if all music was available on the cloud, the Top 10 included The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles.

Asked what they considered an advantage of cloud computing, 40% cited "working from home while naked."

But then, half of the respondents said they were pretty sure that cloud computing would be affected by storms, so maybe we should have doubts about the naked and classic rock parts?

The study was commissioned by Citrix Systems, who are in the computer networking and cloud-making business (possibly working while unclothed, listening to Houses of the Holy.)

Probably a good reason why a lot of people shouldn’t be au naturel when working at home. Dogs,neighbors,alcohol,medications, to name a few!
