Spiderman 3 may be dark and brooding but give him a wet nose and your friendly local superhero can be a man’s best friend.Swinging in at well-known purveyor of fine gadgets, Firebox.com, these custom job iDogs, or should we say, Spi-Dogs, come in both traditional red and the sinister black-suited Venom.Slip them an MP3 player and they'll move to the music while expressing their hormone and genetically modified spider venom moods, through multicoloured LEDs.Sadly the black suit doesn't seem to add any power to i-Dog's weedy internal speaker – more alien symbiote needed, we feel.
