After 16 months, I have a feeling we are merely feeling the effects of the Great Recession right about now. So Sharper Image, Circuit City, and perhaps the soon to follow General Motors, have all but left us with useless plastic shopping bags and soon-to-be-null warranty papers. But something actually had an impact when we learned that the maker of PLEO – Ugobe has now filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection in Idaho. Not really a big deal, perhaps, but you’ve played with PLEO like we did, you’d probably feel a little sad, to see such an innovative (and cute) product go. Take a look at PLEO’s youtube demo below, if you never owned one, this is your last chance. Recession we truly hate you.
