Sven, Where's Your Doggy?
And the operator knows how traumatic that can be. "The worst nightmare for all dog owners would be to lose their darling pet," it states in a totally serious press release issued today.
That's why TeliaSonera has launched a new service, at just 79 Swedish Kronor ($11.62) per month, to help its Swedish mobile customers sleep easy. "Sweden’s 700,000 dog owners can soon keep better track of their doggy with the help of their mobile phone and a GPS receiver that is attached to the dog’s collar." (See TeliaSonera Tracks Dogs.)
And yes, they did use the word "doggy."
One question that springs to mind is -- why stop at dogs? We can think of plenty of other quadrupeds, and bipeds, that could do with some tracking. The writing is surely on the wall for errant boyfriends.
