Oh Look, a Talking Dog!

8:10 PM -- Have you seen SoftBank Mobile Corp. 's ads for its wireless service in Japan?

Me neither -- until recently -- but I was looking at video of the kind of phones that SoftBank offers on its domestic market and came across their talking dog ads.

A lot more fun than this, huh?

Oh yeah, about the phones, they're pretty swish, too. I suspect that SoftBank will push Sprint to further its mobile payment plans. As this seems to be a key feature on at least some of their devices.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
