The Consumerist posted an article earlier this evening about a particular problem possibly affecting Fisher Price’s Kid-Tough digital camera.  The person quoted in the article on the Consumerist went on saying that after his kid took a bunch of pictures, he plugged it into his computer only to have been greeted with a pop up from his virus software alerting him that he had just been protected form a virus.  To make matters even worse, phone calls were useless as apparently all 3 phone lines Fisher Price had were full and he was immediately disconnected.  Without up to date software the guys laptop could have been infected.  The family weighed their options of either waiting about half a year for a new one to be sent, or just buying a new camera without the “added features”.  So parents, if you bought your children a Fisher Price Kid-Tough digital camera for Christmas, make sure your computer is tighter than Fort Knox before connecting it to your computer or else you are in for a nasty surprise!
