Check in @ JASE Studio, NORFOLK VA: Today is National Inane Answering Message Day. Wow, who came up with that? What’s the craziest voice mail message you’ve ever gotten?
We just spent the better part of the afternoon mindmapping on a new project with a great client, Williamsburg Coffee, here at the Studio. Chatting with the likes of Todd Arnette, the best coffee roaster this side of the North Pole, is how I love spending every working day.

Check in @ JASE Studio, NORFOLK VA: Today is National Kazoo Day. What do you do on National Kazoo day? Why, play the kazoo, of course.
Alabama Vest of Macon Georgia made the first Kazoo in the 1840’s. Actually, he conceived the Kazoo, and had Thaddeus Von Clegg, a German clockmaster make it to his specifications.
Commercial production of the Kazoo didn’t occur until many years later in 1912. Manufacturing was first started by Emil Sorg in Western New York. Sorg joined up with Michael McIntyre, a Buffalo tool and die maker. Production moved to Eden, NY where the factory museum remains today.

Wow. Microsoft announced yesterday that if you are running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1, you get a free upgrade to Windows 10. And then free upgrades to the newest version of Windows for the life of the device. Awesome!
Delivering Windows as a Service and a Free Upgrade to Windows 10
Today was a monumental day for us on the Windows team because we shared our desire to redefine the relationship we have with you – our customers. We announced that a free upgrade for Windows 10 will be made available to customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 who upgrade in the first year after launch.*
This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost. With Windows 10, the experience will evolve and get even better over time. We’ll deliver new features when they’re ready, not waiting for the next major release. We think of Windows as a Service – in fact, one could reasonably think of Windows in the next couple of years as one of the largest Internet services on the planet.
