    Skynet? That seems like an odd choice. What would the icon even look like? I can't even associate that with "news", and not really "bot" for that matter (though I guess it is more of a "bot" in this context than the other choices).

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Actually, Rosie was chosen based on the Jetsons' robot maid. So, also a worthy bot name.

    Oh I know what Rosie is. The Jetsons was one of my favorites growing up. I meant Skynet was more a "bot" in the sense of a computer program but not a complete mechanical entity like Rosie is. Well in the imaginary sense that Rosie is. But as part of Rosie's duties, didn't she sometimes read or recap the news for the Jetsons?
