Member GuinnessGulper reports that Playmates' relationship with their Dot Pals Homer may be on the rocks. Playmates sent him this chilly response when he wrote to ask why the toy is not compatible with the new Windows XP operating system:

The dot pal does not work with the XP as it was not on market when this toy was tested. There will be no additional updates for this product.
