Dogs can be great companions. Often called Man’s best friend, they have become the object of much affection by their masters who treat them more like kids than pets sometime. However, the reality is that pet owners go to work, and dogs don’t have much entertainment during the day.

Worse, some studies have suggested that dogs can feel distress or anxiety when left at home alone. The level of stress seems related to the alone-time for dogs in this situation. In some countries, “pets hotels” are seen as a solution to this problem, but they are expensive and not always convenient or available. Read full post →BallReady: Telepresence For Dog Owners

ps4 sneakers 2Gamers come from all walks of life, whether they’re high-ranking corporate executives, to artists, to college students, to fashionistas, and so on. However what do you do when you’re both a sneaker design and a fan of the Sony PlayStation 4 console? What do you do then? Well, you design a pair of custom PlayStation 4-themed shoes, of course!

That is what Jonny Barry of FreakerSNEAKS did when he created the pair of JRDN X PS4 sneakers. These sneakers are based on the Nike Air Jordan 4 sneakers which debuted back in 1989. According to the folks at Dualshockers who did an interview with Barry, it seems that the sneakers were an ode to his love of sneakers as well as being a self-proclaimed Sony loyalist.

kindle paperwhite review text 640x427While tablets these days are perfectly capable of display e-books and being used to read them on, there are some out there who still prefer e-readers simply because e-readers tend to use the e-ink display technology which makes it easier on the eyes. E-readers also tend to have much better battery life so that readers won’t have to worry about running out of juice mid-sentence.

That being said, it seems that Amazon could be getting prepared to launch a new Kindle e-reader. This is thanks to Amazon Germany (via The Verge) who had several listings for a certain “Kindle Voyager” device. The e-reader is said to sport a 6-inch display with a pixel density of 300ppi, and apparently the release date has been set for the 4th of November.

Xperia Z3 Compact inferiorWhile Sony has some pretty decent high-end smartphones, like the recently announced Sony Xperia Z3, the company also has some low-mid range smartphones in its stable as well. Unfortunately it seems that those devices aren’t doing particularly well which is why Sony has recently announced that they will be revising their finances.

The company has recently quadrupled their forecast of the amount of money they expect to lose in the financial year, and it seems that the loss is largely attributed to the company’s low-mid range Xperia handsets that aren’t selling as well as Sony had initially hoped. Sony’s revised financials now state that its net loss will be about 230 billion yen, a leap from its previous forecast of 50 billion yen.

Well the good news is that if you are looking to take your smartphone photography game to the next level, you might be interested in a device called the Relonch.
