Today's Nugget is more cautionary than complimentary. Am I the only one a little uncomfortable with Microsoft's new target demographic? The software giant is teaming up with Barney (noooooooooooooooooo!) to bring your children their very own animatronic playmate. He talks, sings, watches TV, and helps with computer games. Sure, today's three-year-olds are tomorrow's Windows 2008 users, but isn't this going a bit too far?
