Wired News takes a look at some of the more (in)famous mascots of the recent, and not so recent history.  Clippy makes an appearance at the top of course, but were you aware each Windows OS received it's own manga style mascot?

"Technology has always had trouble appealing to the part of our hard-wiring that expects advanced machines to behave like

sentient beings. It's this problem that makes software product managers run screaming to careers in TV marketing, pet

supply sales and toy manufacturing. In the meantime, they come up with blatant attempts to personalize tech products

through animal and humanoid mascots."
