We here at the EB office are in a kind of comfortable position: writing articles for our great website, scanning the internet for news and fresh content for your reading, listening and viewing pleasures as well as hanging around on Facebook and Twitter – since these are the real news sources of our time, right?! Some of you might not be that lucky. Raise the curtain for ‘Excellbook‘, a new app for desktop computers that sneaks into Facebook-unfriendly office surroundings in Excel-camouflage-mode.
Denim tailor Diesel makes this new app available within its current ‘Be stupid’ campaign – and the result is really impressive. Once downloaded to your Mac or PC and connected to Facebook, ‘Excellbook’ looks and feels like a regular spreadsheet – columns, rows, values and tabs all included (check out the video below for a preview). You can update your timeline, check out your friend’s activity, like and comment on new posts and even chat with all the people that should be being productive at work themselves.
Here’s the legal disclaimer: of course ‘Excellbook’ won’t prevent you from a disciplinary warning letter from your boss in case you’re being caught in the act or your company’s using IP-filters. But it’s a more fun and entertaining way than always peeking over your shoulder, checking if the boss is around when posting how boring work is again today.
There’s a rumor going around that social networks are the future of the internet. This might well be true, and if we all look aT our online habits, we probably spend the most time on updating and checking our Facebook! On the other hand the EB editorial staff believes in the idea of a well edited music platform which is why we offer you ElectronicBeats.net as well as the SlicesDVD and our print magazine.
However you can of course find us on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and Issuu, and as we know that habits are a-changin’, we’re going to bringing you exclusive news updates, features and a whole lot of new music to your social network of choice.
From today we’re introducing an exclusive new feature for all our followers on Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud: the »EB favourite of the day«. Every day at noon you’ll be notified of the latest musical suggestion from the Electronic Beats editorial staff delivered on the nifty SoundCloud player. As a producer you can also send us your own songs or productions via our SoundCloud Dropbox – and if we like them, we will share them with our fans and readers!
The »EB favourite of the day« won’t be displayed on Electronicbeats.net – so make sure to follow us via Facebook, Twitter or SoundCloud. And let us know what you think of the music that is rocking the EB office soundsystem.
