You can go right now to your nearest shop, slam down a credit card and purchase Nathan's Drake's last adventure.No one cares whether Indiana Jones does his own laundry or which Chinese takeaway is his favourite.Yet, somehow, Naughty Dog have managed to make a short domestic sequence Drake shares with his wife Elena one of the most exciting and engaging parts of the whole Uncharted 4 package.When you consider that this is a game where you travel the world looking for hidden pirate treasure in an effort to save your estranged brother, that's quite an achievement.Based on all of the crap Nate and Elena leave lying around in their bedroom, and the towel hanging over the shower curtain in their scruffy bathroom, the couple seem pretty comfortable in each other's company.Dirty plates sit in the sink ready to be washed, a pet hate of mine that caused me to judge Nate and Elena appropriately.
You d have more control over the nutrients, with the same emotional benefits of sharing a meal with your pet that you d have with a human.The following infographic from Breeder Retriever shows some basic guidelines for using your slow cooker to make dog food, one layer at a time.But we have to urge you to use caution: this is a formula, not a recipe.Homemade food is a great option for many pets, but we recommend that owners avoid general recipes from books and the Internet and instead consult with a board-certified veterinary nutritionist, said Jennifer Larsen, an assistant professor of clinical nutrition at the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at UC Davis and lead author on the study.These specialists have advanced training in nutrition to help formulate customized and nutritionally appropriate recipes.So use this infographic as a guide click here to enlarge — and then show it to a veterinary nutritionist to get their thoughts about which ingredients are best for your pet.

Facebook Live Video is great, but not if you want to give the world a 24/7 look at your hamster, backyard, or whatever you ve got around that s at least mildly interesting.That changes with Facebook s new Continuous Live Video support launch, adding a non-stop broadcasting option to the social network s live video platform.Facebook has a new Continuous Live Video API, according to TechCrunch, and it is intended for things life nature cameras that provide non-stop views of wildlife, perhaps cameras located in barns or pet stores or any other places the general public might be interested in watching regularly.This is contrasted by Live Videos' previous 90-minute time limit.Continuous Live Video makes Facebook's live streaming platform more attractive to a wider array of users, potentially drawing in more partners as well.The kind of scenarios in which you d stream for hours on end, though, aren t typically the situations you d be inclined to re-watch, and users can simply record more narrow, shorter videos for special events using other cameras, uploading those as highlights or similar for replays.

Made for children, they say, and "playful adults", Gululu contains your water and encourages you to drink said water.If the water bottle stays within range of your smartphone, updates on the amount of water your child is drinking will come immediately.Of course she quickly figured out how to game the system by pouring water in and out of the bottle, but that's beside the point.Though we were unable to test this feature as we've got just one bottle at the moment, kids will be able to shake their Glululu bottles near one another to become friends in the Glululu app - their friends' Glululu pets will appear in their bottle, and they compare scores through the future.It's easy to forget to screw the cap of this bottle back on before shaking the bottle - wetness ensues.Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
Excellent on open carpet and hard floorsGreat for pet hairs on carpetEasy to empty and clean filterFunky designRelatively quiteBulky tubes and over-sized toolsHard work on stairsCant clean under sofas/obstaclesPoor button position on handleKey FeaturesQuadruple-A energy ratingPower: 750WCapacity: 2.2lWhat is the Vax Air Revolve Pet?But can the funky design and unusual ergonomics add up to more than just a design statement?Perhaps thankfully, there is no on-board storage for the four other tools as it would become a proper double-digit porker.We have had issues with the latter s over-sized air channel cut outs when used with Vax s cordless models, but for this powerful mains cleaner they are perfect for stopping the head getting stuck fast to your sofa.Yet the large wheels do mean it likes to go straight on and the shape tends to get caught on chair legs or similar obstacles.Arguably, a traditional cylinder with tear-drop shape, rear wheels and trolley type jockey wheel at the front is probably a little easier to manoeuvre around obstacles and furniture.
We loved the power and versatility of Dyson s V6 Absolute cordless cleaner, with only minor caveats of shortish battery life and occasionally tricky bin emptying.Yet, look closely and the V8 and all its tools have undergone subtle yet significant upgrades.On the V6, a slide-clip released the base of the canister, but debris like matted hair did sometimes need a little encouragement to fall out – either a thump on top or poking with your finger.The Direct Drive head is best on carpetsThe Direct Drive cleaner head is fully articulating, allowing you to get very low under sofas and the like, and is ideal for carpeted floors.On max power neither model is a paragon of ultra-quiet cleaning, but they certainly get the job done.BeforeOn open carpets using the Direct Drive floor head, cleaning results are absolutely first class.
Amid the shift of commerce to online stores like Amazon, one huge segment of the industry has been overlooked: dollar stores.Recently, Hollar had its first million dollar month, and raised another $12 million in Series A funding.But while the value proposition between these sorts of shopping experiences is similar to Hollar s, there s little overlap in terms of merchandise.In total, Hollar today hosts over 20,000 SKUs across 18 major categories, including home, beauty products, pet items, toys, party supplies, accessories, groceries, and others – and nothing on its site costs more than $5.00.It will work with Chinese manufacturers to produce select items in categories like kitchen, gadgets, stationery, and electronic accessories, then expand from there in the future.Yeom believes Hollar has a shot, and its focus on merchandise quality will aid it in reaching that goal.
Image: Goldfinger, 1964 Back in 2006, Nike introduced the high-performance SUMO 2 golf club driver, specially engineered to help golfers hit straighter shots, even for slightly off-center hits.That s the conclusion of Daniel Russell, an acoustician at Pennsylvania State University, who described the results of his latest experiments earlier today at a meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Salt Lake City, Utah.Last summer, he heard that Nike Golf was designing a new line of composite drivers with the goal of addressing that unpleasant impact sound.It was such a different—some say annoyingly loud—sound, it raised eyebrows.Kerrian likens the sound of impact from the SUMO 2 to the tin-can ping of an aluminum baseball bat—a pet peeve of avid baseball players, who generally prefer the satisfying crack of a wooden bat.Acoustics can help find a happy medium between the two extremes, according to Russell: Understanding how and why clubs make the sounds they make is the first step toward helping sports engineers design clues that sound just right, while still hitting the ball straight and far.

That compares with 5.9 percent in the Bay Area.Annual venture capital funding for Los Angeles area technology companies rose to $2 billion in 2014, a 185 percent increase in five years, according to Upfront Ventures and CB Insights.On sites where Howard Hughes developed aircraft after World War II, Rubicon Project Inc. is pairing advertisers and websites; Fullscreen Inc. is working to turn Internet personalities into mobile-video stars, and Gehry Technologies Inc. is developing software to model buildings and urban environments.The company has drawn from L.A. s film and television talent pool to offer longer visual narratives, he said, belying its reputation for viral pet videos.Playa Vista was a cluster of airplane hangars surrounded by wetlands into the late 1990s, well after the rest of L.A. s coastline had filled in with homes, aerospace companies, tourist attractions and a nascent technology scene in Santa Monica.The disappearing-image messaging platform Snapchat, founded in Venice Beach, was developed by a trio of students at Stanford University."We knew that Playa was uniquely located in terms of its proximity to whatever you would consider the tech hub before 2012 in Los Angeles, which was pretty much Santa Monica," said Adrian Foley, Brookfield s western regional president."Even in its relative infancy, L.A. s technology sector already is undergoing a pattern familiar to San Francisco Bay Area firms seeking refuge from Palo Alto rents.Mitu Inc., which creates online videos, quizzes and other content for young Latinos, is headquartered in Santa Monica in a building with many of the hallmarks of a tech startup: an open workspace with exposed wood ceilings, colorful artwork, free snacks for employees.Mitu s 60 employees will move east to downtown Los Angeles when the company s Santa Monica lease expires this year, said Roy Burstin, the company s chief executive and co-founder.

Former screen actor and current real-world bizarre performance artiste Shia LaBeouf has come up with a new way of making people shake their heads and worry about his mental state: posting his GPS location online and asking us to come and find him.The new neediest man on the planet is orchestrating this project through Twitter with involvement of sorts from Vice and several public art institutions, so it appears legit and not the actions of a man who wants to be eaten in a forest by a German cannibal he sought out on the internet because he's got nothing left to live for , and look -- some people actually went and found him:Which raises the question... what would you do with Shia LeBoeuf were you to stumble across him crying into his phone somewhere and looking dishevelled?Maybe he'd just like someone to ask him if he's OK, like people on Facebook are always saying you should.Except they never do.He's probably still a bit rich, so maybe lunch somewhere nice?Get him to buy you some shoes, then go home and listen to the Pet Shop Boys?

Summer has arrived early in much of the country, and in some places with a vengeance, and so too has the need to stay hydrated in the heat.So to help the smallest members of your family and let s be honest, you as well drink enough water, there s a new interactive water bottle that gamifies your children s water intake — the Gululu Interactive Water Bottle.Featuring a screen, a home button, a pair of touch sensors, Wi-Fi, and wireless charging capabilities, it s one of the most high-tech water bottles out there, but also perhaps the most effective.Thanks to a companion app, you can set hydration goals based on your child s age, weight, and location.The closer your child gets to his or her optimal water intake, the healthier the virtual pet becomes — the animated character will grow, collect treasure, and explore an underwater world of adventure known as the Gululu Universe.You can pre-order this futuristic water bottle yourself for the early-bird price of $89 in colors that include Bowhead Blue, Uni-dragon Violet, Submarine Yellow, Monster Green, and Starfish Pink.
Whether you're a high school student, intern, CEO, entrepreneur or job-seeker, you need a good brand, especially in this climate.Instead of the usually blah, blah, blah of the year your company was founded, bring listeners directly into the moment you created the idea for your business.Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson is the king of twisting.Who can forget that dunt-dunt, dunt-dunt, dunt-dunt?But actually there was one big similarity to our stories: we were both trying to solve a consumer problem.Focus on what s in it for me for the listener right away.
You may already know common plants, like oleander or holly, that are harmful to dogs and cats, but if you re thinking of buying a plant and aren t sure if it is safe for your pet, the ASPCA s searchable index can help.You can search the index for specific plants or filter the list by pet types dog, cat, etc .Click through to the plant s profile to learn what qualities make it toxic, which type of pets it is toxic to, and reactions your pet may have to the plant.For this index, toxic doesn t necessarily mean fatal, the plant could just cause problems in their digestive system, or cause them pain or some other distress.A quick search before you buy means you won t buy plants for your home or yard only to find out later that they may be harmful to your pets.
No matter how many times we tell you to change your passwords and make it anything but your birthday, 123456, or password, many still aren t taking the efforts to make their accounts more secure.In addition, Microsoft will continue using its lockout mode when you ve guessed the password incorrectly too many times to prevent a hacking attempt.For more info on what Microsoft considers to be a strong password, you can check out its research paper here.But if you don t have the time, just remember this: make it at least 8-characters long, use symbols and/or numbers, capitalization is your friend, and for the love of Christ, name it after anything but your pet.And if you want to get fancy, add two-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.Read next: Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Review: a Windows 10 convertible that's actually a good tablet
