Uhh, I'd feel bad about ramming a cable into a teddy bear's ass and shoving into the glovebox. I'll pass.

What if he was charging you? With a knife?

Really, at that point it's him or you, buddy. No do-overs.

Does the teddy have the blank shiny black eyes or the pupils that spin (and stick)? It's creepy either way.

Wow. Bitch trumped my ace. Nicely played, lekvar!

There's rumors of a movie this summer.

MP3 iTeddy hopes to challenge Apple's iPod dominance

Now that is some hopeful thinking. But I love the thought of these dominating the Seattle downtown experience. Hipsters, business-folks, joggers ... all giving up the iPod thing to carry the bear around.

Wait a minute... an identical iTeddy was pitched by one Imram Hakim here in the UK on BBC2's Dragon's Den, and won investment capital (first clip on page, not sure if it will work non-UK)... although another of the 'dragons' said he hated the idea and hoped it would fail. This was a year or so ago, although they had a recap, where-are-they-now episode on thursday when this was replayed.
Anyway, I see no mention of DD in these links. Are these two competing products, or what?

I suggest that the first link refers to the Dragon's Den iTeddy, which was perhaps a coincidental development to whatever Felix was coming up with in Austin.

When I was growing up, they had stuffed animals with fm radios in them. How again is this different?

I think I saw this movie before.

I thought I'd seen this idea in Make, but the mental image I had in mind belonged to a cuddly remote control. Looking around I found an mp3-playing pillow & a Robosapien transplanted into a teddy bear.

Wow. Thanks for linking to that awesome comment by felix. Hadn't caught it before.
