    UPS recently ran a competition in Europe to unofficially name the UPS widget, a little screenmate that helps keep track of your shipments.

    Is it well-known in the States and Canada?

    The name chosen, at random, was Brownie!

    When I first saw the title of the post I got very interested. I thought maybe you were a bean counter on the inside that was going to enlighten us on how UPS plans its operations.

    In business school a "widget" is a fictional item that a company produces. I thought you were going to tell us what a "widget" at UPS would be.

    Obviously our product is service, but I was thinking our operations were based on an average (and price weighted) of all our services from EAM to ground. And I thought you were going to tell us that.

    I was dissapointed to learn you are talking about a freaking puppet. God help me.

  6. It is not a pupet, nor is it a piece of Christmas Poo; it is an application you load on your desktop that keeps track of RSS feeds, news, and UPS packages you track

    I know this thread is out of date but I didn't want to make a new one for the announcement. IT'S COMING TO CANADA! God save us all before it becomes this:

    Warning, there is the F word in this but we all feel the same way about Microsofts paperclip:
