What exactly are U.B. Funkeys? Check out Kidzworld's review of these cute, collectible virtual friends.

What exactly are U.B. Funkeys? Well, it’s a series of collectible figurines that, when connected to your computer through a USB port, unlock an online world filled with games and interactive activities.

Funkeys, made by Mattel, can be bought as a starter-up kit that includes a USB reader, a larger six (6) inch Funkey that connects to your computer using the USB cable and has a special docking platform on its back, and two regular three (3) inch Funkeys. All you have to do is place the smaller, three inch Funkeys onto the larger Funkey’s back to read their codes and access new area of the Funkey’s online world, which is called Terrapina, and is a virtual theme park made up of different towns, each with their own interactive stations, secret clubs, virtual shops and fun video games you can play to collect coins that you can use to buy things for your very own Terrapina home (called a “crib”). But, to enter restricted areas of Terrapina, you’ll need to collect more Funkeys that have access to those areas. There are 42 different Funkey designs and each one gives you access to a different part of the Funkey world.

    What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

    No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
