There are two types of people on the Internet: those with cats, and those who wish they had cats. Of course, it's never a great idea to give someone a real pet, especially someone who you best know for staring at the computer all the time. Compromise? Give your loved one a furry little robot friend this season.
There's a good chance that they already owned a Furby at one point. After all, these creepy little critters have been around since 1998. But Furbies are different now! They have stayed current with the times! They act more like living creatures and respond to stimuli more than cats do, actually. And there's a smartphone app that you can use to feed them and translate that strange language they speak.
Most importantly though, Furbies love cuddles. Isn't that the only thing that web geeks want?
