Big Brother Bear

The War On Real And Imagined Dangers (WORAID) has taken a great leap forward with Microsoft unveiling the latest threat to child privacy, a spy toy called "Teddy" (login required). Although a date for mass-production has yet to be set, Teddy showed up at a Tech Fair to show off his state of the art surveillance skills.
