Buh-bye, Clippit

Now this is effective advertising. Microsoft created a site to showcase the fate of "Clippit", the MS Office "pal" that everyone knows and loves so much. The flash bits are actually pretty funny. They even have a link to Clippit's Amazon.com wish list. Believe it or not, someone actually bought one of the items! There's also a poll where you can help choose what becomes of Clippit. So... maybe the "XP" in Office XP does stand for "Ex-Paperclip"!
