Disguise Facebook as a Spreadsheet with ExcellBook
Just what you’ve been waiting for. Now you can hide your Facebook usage in plain sight with a crafty app called ExcellBook. That screenshot you see up top is Excellbook in use, it makes Facebook look like some boring old MS Excel spreadsheet, creating just about the best Facebook disguise I’ve ever seen.
Even the app icon looks kind of Microsoft Office-ish, which makes Excellbook a very sneaky cover that certainly hides Facebook well, assuming your company didn’t block Facebook access completely that is.
I tried the app out and it works as advertised, but I couldn’t figure out how to change the default language from Spanish, unless you can figure that out your boss might think you’re suddenly working in another language if they look too close. What’s the motivation here? Other than to kill productivity, TheNextWeb says the app is some kind of publicity stunt for a clothing company, but there’s no hint of that in the app.
You can download ExcellBook for Mac OS X or Windows at the appropriately named BeStupidAtWork.com.
Use it, don’t abuse it, and try not to get fired.
