Some Genius Invented A Way To Make Reddit Look Like Your Work Email And I Love Him

I have to admit, Reddit confuses the hell out of me. I just don’t get it – a bunch of people babbling about random shit is about all I can make out. That being said, I’ve definitely fallen down a few Reddit rabbit holes, spending hours reading people’s random theories on “Serial” or how celebs are in bed, according to people that have supposedly banged them. And now that some genius has developed a way to read Reddit at work without getting caught by your boss, who thinks “no personal internet browsing” is an actual rule rather than a mere suggestion, your opportunities to join me in the time-suck that is Reddit are even better.

The folks at Reddit reminded us on Monday that a guy named Peter Cottle has created, MSOutlookit, a skin for your computer that looks like your Microsoft Outlook inbox…except that it’s really Reddit in disguise. According to Huffington Post, the program is built so that “users able to enter and save specific subreddits in their faux inbox as if they’re folders. When they click on a subreddit’s post, it opens like a regular email.”

A big thanks to Reddit for reminding us of this amazing bit of technology during Thanksgiving week, when most of us are sitting in our cubicles doing next to nothing anyway. At least now we can look like we are.
