Friday IT Funny: Barbie gets a new job

Mattel puts new clothes on Barbie, but we all know the three-year-old brother will just take them off again

Computer Engineer Barbie is coming to rock a research lab near you.

Watch out boys, there's a new girl in the office and her name is Computer Engineer Barbie.

That's right: The busty, blonde-haired and blue-eyed doll from Mattel has moved from her beach house in Malibu to a trendy apartment in Silicon Valley and she's going to steal your job!

The tech-savvy little minx comes outfitted with her own pink laptop, a pink Bluetooth headset, a trendy pink circuitboard watch and a pair of pink spectacles to complete the "geek" look.

You can tell that she's good with code too, because the binary display on her laptop spells out BARBIE.

Computer Engineer Barbie was released at the same time as News Anchor Barbie, both winners of an online poll run by Mattel for their "I can be..." series of dolls.

Wait a second... IT... and journalism? Maybe I'd better make sure she doesn't get our jobs too!
