So Mattel allowed people to vote on the 2010 Barbie dolls. Pick a career for Barbie.
Half a million votes later, the popular vote choice for Barbie is that she will be a computer engineer with a pink laptop, matching pink geek glasses, Bluetooth-enabled phone and a dress with a binary-code pattern. Oh yes, and that Barbie body.
Oh yeah, the girl fans also voted up Barbie to be a news anchor. That's an easy one. Give her a microphone and she's set.
