n. A poorly designed, aesthetically unpleasing, or just generally useless Java applet.
Unlike cable's simple PPP connection, SBC uses SLIP-for Serial Line Internet Protocol. And the installation CD installed 125MB of spyware, craplets, and other junk to SLIP-enable my system.
Java programs are called 'applets.' However, those out there are usually so useless, they are better termed 'craplets.'
