Ribbon Hero: Holy Crap! Microsoft Actually Went Through With It

Ribbon Hero: Holy Crap! Microsoft Actually Went Through With It
Remember the bit of news we shared a while back about Microsoft’s filing a trademark for “Ribbon Hero?” Well now the game/add-on/learning tool is available for download!

Tubular Clock Tells Time With Words
Like Art Lebedev’s (vaporware) Verbarius clock, this unique timepiece uses words to describe the current time, rather than using numbers.
