Let me warn you that these are the most annoying robots that I have ever seen! This thing actually talks NON-STOP! And if you ignore it for too long, your Dinkie will become infected with a (albeit pretend) computer virus that progresses extremely rapidly. Ignore it long enough and your pet will stop responding completely until you debug it. I actually leave it in virus mode just to get some peace and quiet!
Not to mention that, unlike the virtual pets of yesterday, this think has legs - will travel. Forget to turn the motor switch off and your Dinkie just might take a dive off your desk. And that can't be too good for it...
