Those using this neologism/neocontraction (?) should be immediately shot, stabbed, drowned, electrocuted, blown up and then hung (after the constituent parts can be reconstituted).

A computer is not a fuzzy-wuzzy Teletubby. It is not a little, goo-goo aww-cute baby, regardless of Apple's iMac abomination.

Nor does it respond to pet names.
