Super Blockquote Smashes Corporatespeak

When HP released upgrades to its high-end workstations, a company official released a statement praising the product that is so chockful of inane corporatespeak that someone just has to do something about it.

So Rob Beschizza of BB Gadgets created a game called Super Blockquote, based on the popular arcade game Breakout, where instead of bricks you get to destroy words:

HP released upgrades to its swanky high-end workstations, aimed at animators and other top productivity bananas. More dreadful than the specifications, however, were the words of John Thompson, vice president and general manager, Workstations, Personal Systems Group, HP.

Boing Boing Gadgets has deemed the standard HTML blockquote insufficient to reveal the expressive power of his business English. Hence, Super Blockquote, which arms you against the marketroid oppression of Thompson's prose.
