What's neither a cat for Caturday or a dog for the Dog Days of Summer? If you're John-Paul and Nicole Clough of Oxford, England, it's a rabbit for "Bunday"! John-Paul says: Just sending this on the off-chance, as you seem to have been a bit short of cats lately... :) We are rather hoping you migh...

If robotic rabbits could multiply, we'd be overrun by "kawaii" (the Japanese word for "cute") by now. Thankfully, Violet's 2005 Nabaztag robo-bunny has kept its socializing strictly to the digital realm. This adorably designed, WiFi-enabled techno-pet was created as a hub for delivering streams of...

DeGei of Dragon Roar (also a participant of a few PTR and beta runs with us here at WoW Insider) has found the infamous Darkmoon Rabbit. What's the Darkmoon Rabbit, you may ask? Other than being the objective of an achievement in Mists of Pandaria, apparently it's bad news. According to DeGei, it...

After a rather graphic trip to the FCC, we suspected that Nabaztag's more pronounceable, if largely aesthetically identical successor Karotz was slated for arrival here in the US any day now.

We haven't seen anything this heart-wrenching since Pleo last made its way through the FCC. There's just something depressing about watching an adorable little animal robot get torn down in the commission's sterile government labs. Karotz, the successor to Nabaztag's friendly WiFi-enabled throne...

Cadbury aside, nothing says Easter quite like a good resurrection tale, and this story's got it -- starring a rabbit, no less. Owners of Nabaztag, the email-reading / weather-forecasting / and generally adorable WiFi-enable desktop buddy, have been reporting a massive die-off of their beloved ambie...
