I installed this because i didn't know better. I uninstalled it five minutes later because it was instantly annoying as hell.

From that time long ago when people got outraged about companies spying on you.

Virtual characters are great for games, but they're a terrible way to interact with information. I remember arguing with someone maybe 12 years ago, who was convinced, as were a lot of people, that the future of the internet was Second Life. We would all be shopping in virtual reality. I got into Second Life for a while, it was a lot of fun, but there was no way I was going to drag Jane Doe Fonda (my avatar was female, and she looked like Bettie Page) through a virtual shopping center to hunt for a cell phone when I could just search through thousands of phones, according to price, features, or preferred character. I don't need a cartoon ape to search for me, that's just extra steps for no reason.
Also, when your interface is a cartoon character, it's real easy to hate. I remember the first time "Clippy", tapped on the inside of the screen to inform me of something. "Oh, Isn't that cute?", I thought! In no time, I was ready to strangle that annoying little fuck.

5 stars for Internet Alert '99, the software that simulates an Internet attacking your computer.

I'm enjoying the BonziBuddy revival that started last year.
