Who Let the Dogs Out?


Mans best friends tend to embrace the great outdoors often to the frustration of their owners. Locatis is coming to the rescue. The companys new PB100 pet-tracking device is a lightweight, water-resistant GPS/GSM device that attaches to a dogs collar. If a pet owner loses sight of his dog and wants to know its location, he sends an SMS text asking, Where is my dog? to the Locatis command center, which connects to the PB100 and starts a search. The PB100 estimates the poochs position and immediately sends the address as SMS text over the GSM network to the command center, and then on to the pet owner. Pet owners also can request information on the dogs whereabouts over the Internet or by calling the Locatis command center.


Kill the Call

If that certain ex keeps calling at inopportune times, maybe its time to release the Killer Mobile BlackBaller. The software developer has created a call filter that blocks calls and text messages.

If you have a Series 60 (Symbian OSbased) Smart Phone, such as the Nokia 6600, 6630, 6680, 3650 and others, the BlackBaller lets you create either a Blacklist numbers you want blocked or a Whitelist numbers from which you want to receive calls and messages. The BlackBaller runs in the background and boots every time a user turns on the phone. Users can download the BlackBaller from Killer Mobiles Web site for $10.
