The article ends with "Mr. Hoeflich’s company, American Merri-Lei Corp., Brooklyn, N. Y., makes the talking benny.". Any idea what a "talking benny" is/was?

What's not shown on the cover is the OLED display and capacitive touch controls for tuning the radio and adjusting the audio. Oh... and I think these folks are planning suing Apple for patent infringement since it is a mobile audio device.
