I don't have time to keep a dog

SONY spends last 6 years designing robotic pets - with removable limbs and heads for customizing! These lovable little toys can be "adopted as pets or serve as STATUS SYMBOLS or conversation pieces". How much? "Not as much as a car, definitely not." Where's the mass production of FURBIES when you need them? One final cry for help concerning Sony's infatuation: "For me, it would be great. I'M SINGLE, and I don't have time to keep a dog." That sounds like desperation to me.... Minor updates to LOW BANDWIDTH.
