I looked at the baby seal site - it looks like they are charging more than 6600 for them - is that in US dollars? Why not just buy everyone a furby?

There is no way that seal toy is an improvement on AIBO. I had one, and it was amazing. Interactive, responsive to your voice, it obeyed commands and would wander off on its own and amuse itself (and you) by playing with its ball and other toys. It was a fantastic and endearing piece of technology. That dopey seal just lies there and grunts and otherwise looks creepy. Feh. Sony ought to bring back AIBO. It rocked.
