New mascot

Wall-E cruising in the kitchenSo, we decided that Pixar’s Wall-E was our new mascot. Figuring that Wall-E and his maker, Buy’nLarge, Inc. would be online and receptive to orders, we quickly negotiated for our very own Wall-E, who is now happily roaming the house, looking for junk to pick up.

I really like Wall-E’s work ethic: whatever happens (which, in his case, includes the collapse of civilization), Wall-E gets up every day, packs up his lunch box and goes to work picking up the pieces of an utterly chaotic situation.

It doesn’t matter to Wall-E that it’s just him on the job or that his task is huge and seemingly hopeless. When he breaks he fixes himself the best he can and gets back to work. Good mascot for me… and, actually, a remarkable robot considering the $60 price tag. I’m waiting for the Wall-E hacks to show up…

    Wall-E totally looks like the robot from “Short Circuit”… minus the cheesy 80’s style of course

    So there’s now a real Wall-E who roams around houses & picks stuff up. But is it an Apple product?
