Bloatware /ˈbləʊtwɛː/ (n.)
1. Computing (informal): Computer software whose marginal usefulness is outweighed by the colossal demands it makes on the CPU, disk space and memory.
2. Management consulting (derogatory): Any human being employed in any control function. Popular amongst those in the COO office. Would be fair if it were not also true — especially true — of those in the COO office.
