Every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: It's not impossible to make a good zoo movie, a little polar bear without a home is going to be a big deal, and Conan's gets laughs out of the Kindle Fire's slow start.
The video of the abandoned baby polar bear named Siku rolling around, chewing on things, and sleeping in a makeshift bed created for him by the Danish zoo that took him in when his mother stopped producing milk is adorable and heart-warming.

Either way, a coup for Conan and more bad news for a gadget that has officially become a bit of a joke. [Team Coco]
