Default Funny nicknames for popular software/hardware.

What are some of your favorite nicknames for software/hardware? We all have a few, those little sarcastic spins on names. Here are some of mine.

Internet Exploder - a classic.
CrApple
Macintush

MicroShaft
M$ anything
NutScrape (the old netscape browser, FF is so much better)
Windoze
RAMmage (back when 512Mb was a lot of RAM and we got 1gig)


Just a few I could remember off the top of my head....
