Octopus lives in our computer. He thinks he's a great big search engine really. He's constantly sifting through products and companies to find interesting and often unusual EDUCATIONAL, LEISURE and FUN programs for you to run on your home computer. He does this to save you lots of frustration and time - and your mum and dad money on your open Internet connection!
Octo says he just loves his job. We think he's a bit moody though because every now and then he stops work- completely! That's usually when it's time to switch off our computer and let him get some sleep.

octopus says have Fun every day
