Pedigree Tracks – apparently your dog now needs a fitness app too [Freeware]

We’re surprised it too so long. After all half the developed world is dog mad, so why shouldn’t some enterprising (cough… opportunistic …cough) company try and capitalize on that? And what better than a pet food company eh? So step forward the new Pedigree Tracks app. The most totally useless piece of code to ever be written in the history of code.

Do Tools from IFTTT – cool online service gives us some mobile tools to play with. But what a mess! Freeware]

We’ve talked about the very cool IFTTT (if this, then that) service before, with its cool mix of automated recipes which you can use to automate parts of your life. The idea is you can set up a recipe to, say, send an alert to your phone if snow is coming, based on a reading of the weather reports, and once the recipe is set up, it just runs automatically every day for you. Neat. Now the company is offering…

Wall Mounted Desk – recreate the joy of your cubicle at home and save space too

One of the benefits of working from home must be the freedom that comes from arranging things exactly how you want them, and the fact that that a pointy haired boss isn’t peering over your shoulder every 10 minutes. But for some people there’s clearly such a thing as ‘too much’ freedom.

The Incredible Astounding Amazing Mr Nunzio La Vecchia and his Quant ‘Salt Water’ Powered Supercar

Hollywood needs to make a movie about this story, because it’s that good. And we mean good. It’s so fantastic it makes other similar stories pale in comparison. At its heart it’s the story of a man and his vision, the vision to create a personality so large, and so incredibly impressive it will take our collective breath away. The movie would star Leo DeCaprio as Nunzio La Vecchia, entrepreneur, inventor, philanthropist, with a glorious gleaming supercar prototype as his…

Apparently the city of Chongqing in China feels that there’s a problem with people walking and texting, so it’s introduced a new ‘Cellphone Lane’, which is there to be used by people who are staring at their handsets as they walk. You couldn’t make this stuff up, could you? The street, actually called Foreigner Street, has a clearly marked lane, with a sign that labels them for mobile phone users.

Apple restricts new iPhone 6 NFC to Apple Pay only [How Stupid Can One Company Be?]

Oh wow, apparently Apple has confirmed that it’s new iPhone 6 NFC implementation is locked to work with only one app, the Apple Pay service. Oh my oh my. This is rather like locking Bluetooth to work only with an iPod, and we can’t help feeling that Steve Jobs must be spinning at several thousand RPM right now, as this incredibly dumb move goes down.

We’re definitely going to file this one under…ah…weird. So it’s a guitar right, well a half size fully functional one anyway. But it’s designed to be used as a door bell too. We’re thinking that’s just in case you don’t have the spare cash to buy both items at one time. Or something.
