Kayako is help desk software that can also peel an apple and take your mother to the doctor. It is a classic case of trying to do everything and doing nothing very well. Especially search. Search is so bad, I'm shocked M$ didn't snap-up this guy. Many years ago I was asked what I thought of Kayako. I had told them how awful it is and how awful it would be to spend one's whole day in this system. Of course they have been using it ever...

Gator the translator. I like to talk to my wife through the lizard. For instance, Gator, did mommy forget to buy you worms? It's nothing personal, buddy, she just gets busy Facebooking and forgets things like the half & half and sour cream.
