I love the names of OPI nail polish! I think my favorite was "I'm not really a waitress", a cherry-red color from a Hollywood themed line.

Kim--I'm Not Really a Waitress is still in the OPI line. I agree, great name. I recall reading somewhere that it's the company's all-time best-seller. Not only that: it inspired the title of the company's 25th-anniversary book: http://www.opi.com/book.asp

Just a slight correction on "Dave" being a new concept (for tech names looking to be approachable and neighborly.) Microsoft's infamous "Bob" project crashed and burned. You can learn a bit about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Bob. Oh... and note that the logo seems to say "Boob" just about as strongly as it says "Bob"... just look at the glasses...

And isn't Dave the counterpart to Hal?
