Compaq Stickman Qool! Fun Downloads and a Game

A while back Compaq revitalized their branding, I think this was a great move as Compaq was very much a stuffy corporate brand only used in big companies housing cubicle drones.

But now, now they have sexy shiny laptops with blue LED lights built for media and gaming! Along with this campaign they had a new character which is essentially a Stickman and a contest to name him.

An Indonesian actually won the contest with the name Qool! Head on over to the mini-site and check out Qool!

Compaq Stickman Qool

If you go to Play Avenue on the menu you can play the memory based piano game, I managed to complete it – it’s only about 5 levels though so even with my horrible short term memory I could do it.

Compaq Play Game

There is a game for each section (Work and School too).

And a bunch of cool downloads like emoticons, wallpapers and avatars.

    Main thing I remember about Compaq (as we used them for six years in the last place I worked) was they always were under powered, over priced and didn’t work right (though, we can blame the Microsoft OS for some of that). Then Hewlett Packard bought them out and we all wondered why.
    I have about four or five compaq’s at home (which I picked up cheaply) and all died within a year or two … except one. If it wasnt’ so underpowered I might still use it … actually, I have plans to attach a robot to it one day. 🙂

    I always remember how Compaq acquired the once great Digital but fell to HP in such short time
