I left it open in the background and the dog kept making noises and I thought I was going crazy.

He's the sole remnant of a Microsoft project so annoying and unpopular with users that most of it never made it to the market.

I can't find the exact article I read on this, but there's some info here: http://technologizer.com/2009/01/02/microsoft-clippy-pa... /

On edit: It was called "Microsoft Bob", it was a non-technical GUI that featured a cast of animated characters, and it was so universally hated that it never saw the light of day. On edit edit: It looks like it actually *was* released, but it was a complete failure.
