WebSense, the company that builds employee Internet management systems (i.e. stop looking at your NCAA brackets and get back to work), says employees watching American Idol clips are putting a strain on corporate Internet connections. Clips of William “She Bangs” Hung seem to be the biggest draw among the Idol set. Of course, WebSense wants to make potential customers aware of this “productivity” issue in order to sell more products.
