Or, well, something like that. A part of its recent campaign, Microsoft’s Office 365 tells people to "get things done anywhere, sunrise to sunset."

In response, 37Signals, the people behind the popular productivity chatroom Campfire, are appealing to the overworked with its own #WorkCanWait campaign that tells you to step away from the computer. “We don’t think it has to be this way.
