Tech Writing: What do you call this icon?

Hi,

In a web app, I've encountered an icon that looks like that below. Is it called a balloon? Something else?
Balloon Icon?
Thanks.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is called a Call Out in Adobe and SnagIt.   That is what I call it.

I trust this helps.

You are very welcome. Except for the mountains of snow, and the very cold outside temperatures, the weekend is good. Made a Road Grader kit with 3 motors in with my Grandson. And our new Nest is keeping the house comfortable. New year of consulting is upon me and I am keeping active. My corporate books are mostly done at this point. You have a great weekend as well.

Thank you for your kind thoughts.
