My avatar is Steve Jobs head crudely placed on an Xbox avatar. It is obviously the best avatar on Channel 9 in pure beauty and ingenuity. A shining example of The GIMP's awesome power and my perfect graphic design skills.
Despite some accusations, it's not part of some grand conspiracy to brainwash you to buy Apple products. I made it one day because I discovered Steve Jobs head fit really well into the Xbox avatar pictures. It's like Lego.
That being said. I'm offering a contest here. If anyone can create an avatar that I find personally more amusing than Steve Jobs's head on a Xbox avatar, I will switch to it. Chances are, you won't. But if anyone is brave enough to try, I'm up for it.
Why don't you use a penguin head?
ya the old one is in bad taste now
and tim cook woudnt work
you cant design an avatar for someone else - it is YOU that must do it ... in ... GIMP
If you want people to treat you more like a human being, stop hiding behind an 'amusing' avatar and just use a picture of yourself; being honest about who you are will improve the level of trust others give you.
well ...let's not go that far!
@Dr Herbie: I was an astronaut on Apollo 17! Honest!
@Sven Groot: I never trusted you until I met you at MIX
I don't know what you're interested in, but I had fun doing this, anyway.
Use an animal as your avatar.
I hesitate to show what might be the coolest set of avatar opportunities, but look what I found.
@ScanIAm: LOL @ My Little Han Solo Encased in Carbonite
What Microsoft site would be complete without a floating head of Bill Gates labeled Bass?
