Take a break from 9 to 5

Office-safe games site guards against nosey bosses

Busy professionals are being invited to take a break from looking for better jobs on the Internet by playing games cunningly disguised as work applications instead.

Visitors to 9to5cafe.com, an online rest stop for office professionals, have been promised protection from prying bosses, thanks to the site’s office-safe design.

What looks like an Excel spreadsheet becomes a skier game, a golf game or minesweeper. A fake desktop is transformed into a shooting gallery or becomes the setting for a space invaders game. And anywhere else on the site, hitting the panic button opens an innocent looking text page.

The site is divided into three sections: play, smile and relax sections, with everything from action games to brain-teasers. Check it out at www.9to5cafe.com.
