USB Big Panda Speaker: Truth in Advertising
Why can’t products just tell you what they are? Do we really need non-descriptive names like Wii, Kindle, Nook, and Droid to describe our gadgets? Really? Product naming doesn’t get much more concise and descriptive than this here thing, the USB Big Panda Speaker.

I’m not sure how I missed these when they hit the Japanese tech circuit earlier this year, but these little doggy speakers were just too kitschy for me to pass up.
