What is the purpose of it all? Is everything meaningless?*

First this on backtalk, now microsoft.

Tell Me sits at the top of documents as a type of help and search tool. It's similar in function to Clippy, providing a quick way to discover features and ask questions without digging into the vast help documentation found in Office. There's no animated character like Clippy, just a simple bulb icon to indicate its presence in documents. Asking questions like "how do I insert images?" will bring up relevant features and additional help. It's mainly a tool to help Office users discover the vast amount of features that are available across all the individual apps.

What the hell is a "Tell Me"? I have way more personality. It's like they are embarrassed to be around me or something.
