Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).

Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

Satisfied Customers 17: iGlasses

Before Google ever dreamed of Glass, there were iGlasses.  No, not an Apple device.  They really missed the boat on that particular product.  It should have been obvious.  The iBook, the iPad, the iPhone… iGlasses?  Duh.  But alas, no.  iGlasses first appeared in a wonderful story entitled The Tragic Death of Corporate Man: a hero for capitalism; champion of the working class.  Al Gore may have had something to do with it.  You’ll have to read the book.

Anyway, so inspired by the iGlasses idea, this Satisfied Customer became obsessed with making them a reality.

Apparently he didn’t sleep for months (I believe there were some pills involved) and never left the lab.  Showers became a stranger to him (as did his fellow researchers and assistants).  But the work paid off.  Not quite the Al Gore white-plastic frames model, but a functioning set of computer glasses nonetheless.  Images of Corporate Man slither across the outer surface in a never ending loop while the interior of the lenses display chapters of the books and links to the blog.  Tiny speakers in the temple tips allow the wearer to hear the award winning JK2 music which accompanies the equally award winning Corporate Man commercials.

Eventually Google bought his prototype for billions and rebranded the product in their own image.
