Technology Mascots Mean Something?

I often peruse when I'm not sifting through Slashdot's goods. Today, I stumbled across the incredibly entertaining article "Gallery: Lamest Technology Mascots Ever".

Of course, Clippy (the paperclip) from Microsoft was in there. So was Tux (the Linux penguin).

My personal favorite mascot-gone-bad?
