    We are living in the future and it’s not quite what I had in mind.

    Do children these days threaten to email the video to mom instead of telling? I’m so out of touch.

    I was thinking that, too, Nox. Great for spying on little brother or sister.

    Why did Mattel miss that angle?

    Does she also have a laser cannon? Robots are supposed to have laser cannons.

    Windows/Mac compatible?

    Guess Greg will have to wait for the Richard Stallman Video Doll.

    I don’t know. Barbie is nothing gnu, and “KEN” sounds like a KDE app, and I’m more of a Gnome guy.

    Anyway I’m sure there’s already a driver for it. … her… … whatever.

    I suspect that this is another of those toys that eldest would love to have. He would probably grumble a bit that it is girlie and would very likely do something about the pink shirt remaining pink, but he would totally geek on something like that.

    Youngest on the other hand, has his heart set on chlamydia. Or possible chicken pox – but when we were last at the museum of science and energy, he was all about chlamydia. I wish he would go for Cthuluh, like his brother did.

    Is there a police officer Ken who carts her off to jail on a wiretapping charge?
