19yo Diebold Technician Wins Presidency

19 Year Old Diebold Technician Wins U.S. Presidency
In a dramatic development that has come as a surprise to pundits and the public alike, a youthful technician with Diebold, Inc. has emerged as the unlikely winner of the 2008 U.S. Presidential election. The president-elect, 19 year old Billy Pustule of Green, Ohio, reached via SMS at the garage apartment by his mother’s house in which he currently resides, said he was “real psyched about being the president” and “had big plans for the inauguration party”.

Ajaxy Yahoo Mail has an interface very like thick mail clients, including To and Cc field labels that double as buttons that bring up the address book. Instead of copying the thick client pattern of a static label for the Subject though, they included another button, which makes it look nice and uniform; and it works, giving you a random subject every time you click it. And that is why this post is titled as it is. I just thought it was f*cking funny, as Denis Leary would say.

Well worth trying if you haven’t played with it already btw, particularly if you still lean towards thick clients. It’s very close to Outlook, in fact I’d go so far as to say that it’s probably better. Yahoo’s UI guys are very good.
