    ♫ Baby, my world’s been movin’ way too fast
    I need to slow down and catch up with some of the past
    Maybe go back home and stay for a week or two
    I’m takin’ some old things and makin’ ’em new…♫

    Lyrics and music by Bill AndersonPaul OverstreetBuddy Cannon, recorded by Joe Nichols.

    Tape Recorder

    LinkedIn has just released a survey about office tools and trends that are no longer considered ‘in’:

    According to professionals, the top 10 items and office trends that are becoming rare and could even disappear in the next five years are:

    1. Tape recorders (79 percent)
    2. Fax machines (71 percent)
    3. The Rolodex (58 percent)
    4. Standard working hours (57 percent)
    5. Desk phones (35 percent)
    6. Desktop computers (34 percent)
    7. Formal business attire like suits, ties, pantyhose, etc. (27 percent)
    8. The corner office for managers/executives (21 percent)
    9. Cubicles (19 percent)
    10. USB thumb drives (17 percent)

    Some of these items should be no surprise …others more so.  I have my doubts about the death of the corner office…of all the things to change, the power structure in law firms and other businesses will keep the coveted corner office around for a good while yet, I suspect.  I am also a bit skeptical about the disappearance of the USB thumb drive..they are still very handy to move big files around..

    Oh well…guess I should slow down some and get a few of these out and catch up with some of the past…before they are all gone…
