UPS Widget

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.



I know this thread is out of date but I didn't want to make a new one for the announcement.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 friend word in this but we all feel the same way about Microsofts paperclip:
