The really big news last week wasn’t good: 17,000 jobs worldwide are being lost at Nokia Siemens Networks (which, incidentally, is a separate company from both Nokia and Siemens). That’s not far short of a quarter of the total workforce. The company is going to focus on mobile network infrastructure and services, with a particular emphasis on mobile broadband, and is likely to sell off other parts of the business.

Dog tracking by mobile phone gets even smarter

Just over a year ago – podcast number 116 if you're counting – we mentioned Retrieva, a tracking and anti-theft dog collar that combined GPS, GSM and RFID technologies.

Today we hear that Retrieva is working with mobile phone sat-nav company ViewRanger to offer an even smarter service. The new features allow you to track your runaway dog on your mobile phone with on-screen maps. By showing the speed and direction of your missing dog, it can even help you to predict where your dog may be headed.
