Internet Explorer: Child of the 90s

Microsoft hit me right in the heart with their latest advertising campaign for Internet Explorer.

Instead of touting the promises of the future, the Washington-based company looked to the past to bring users up to speed with its latest browser.

Titled Child of the 90s, the video more or less sums up my childhood in the span of 1 minute and 40 seconds.

This post may seem like I’ve overdosed on all things Pharrell, but as you watch/hear him talk and read through the post, you’ll see how much of an inspiration he is. Not only to me. But to many others, I’m sure.

A New York Minute

I thought it was only appropriate that I posted this quick timelapse video of New York as I savioured the last 24 hours in the city…
