You fed it, put it to bed and picked up after the pixelated poops. You were inconsolable after it died, but it returned after a simple reset
Remember your first Tamagotchi? Bandai, the same company that gave us our favorite virtual pet, released a new version of TechPet, a toy that turns your iPhone into a dog
You can download the free TechPet app and take care of your animal on your iPhone or iPod Touch, but once you plug the device into your headphone jack, the pet comes to life. Your iPhone's screen becomes the puppy's face and the rest of the body responds to your actions
Like Tamagotchi, you nurture your pet by feeding, grooming and playing.
