Are you just looking to argue, or generally asking? The mac icon is becuase you are spoofing AOL 4.0, you already know that. Would you like a prize? :-) The penguin icons shows if users are on or offline, just hover over it and you'd have seen this.

If you think the icons are "stupid", you're welcome to not use the site in the first place.
