Whistle, a ‘Fitbit for dogs,’ acquires pet-tracking company Tagg

In the past few years, we’ve seen the emergence of two big ideas when it comes to pet tech: the ability to monitor your pet’s fitness levels and the ability track lost pets. Now, those two ideas are merging. Whistle, a Fitbit-like gadget that charts a dog’s physical activity, announced today it has acquired the GPS-enabled pet tracker Tagg.

He’s published a brief rundown of his work on Watch Dogs over on his Behance page.

Kevin Spacey on dead dogs and deviousness in ‘House of Cards’

Netflix original drama House of Cards has won plaudits from critics, a Golden Globe award for actress Robin Wright, and a potential third season. But in a lengthy interview with the show’s star Kevin Spacey — who plays scheming Congressman Frank Underwood — The Wall Street Journal notes how much of a risk the streaming service took by taking on a show that cost $ 100 million for its first two seasons.
