Talking virtual "pet" that resides on your desktop.
DeskBots is a talking virtual "pet" that resides on your desktop offering cynical commentary, criticisms of your work habits, and less-than-friendly advice. It has been described as everything from "artificial artificial-intelligence" to "utterly useless". This completely rewritten version of our classic desktop toy includes many improvements over the original 1990's version including full Mac OS X integration and a number of handy new features such as a To-Do list, an event calendar, email monitoring, weather reports, and more.
What's new in DeskBots 2008
Added holiday cheer. Snow, sleigh bells, evergreen, lights and shopping day reminders start to be displayed in mid-December.
Added an option to disable holiday cheer by entering the command "/bah humbug" into the DeskBots terminal.
A number of virtual metal components have been replaced with virtual plastic to reduce virtual weight.
"/date" and "/time" commands now show appropriate displays on monitors.
