Best dog tech: Toys, gadgets, and services for your pup

Elroy Mariano

International Dog Day lands on Wednesday, Aug. 26 this year, and there’s really no better way to celebrate than by giving your pup a gift. Because we’re all about tech (and pups) at ZDNet, we rounded up a few gadgets, gizmos, and subscriptions to consider. All these are well-reviewed across the internet, and many of them cost less than $100. 

We even included a few non-techie items at the bottom in case your dog isn’t interested in the latest hardware. Either way, we’re sure you’ll find something no matter your budget.

Labor Day weekend is here, and dozens of companies have launched sales to help you save on tech, mattresses, clothing, and more. We’re constantly updating our list of the best sales, but it can be hard to sort through thousands of deals to find the cream of the crop.

If you’ve ever used a wireless charger, you know there’s exactly one place you can put your phone on it to work. Now, a new type of wireless charging technology is hitting the market and it’s more effortless than ever.

“People have generally not had a great experience with wireless charging,” explained Noah Dentzel, CEO and co-founder of Nomad. The company is known for its high-quality mobile accessories.

Recently, I visited Nomad’s headquarters in Santa Barbara to check out a new device called Base Station Pro.

China Fast-Tracks ChiNext Reforms to Attract Tech Start-ups from Shanghai to New York

Elroy Mariano

Back in late April, China kicked off a reform to fast track initial public offerings (IPOs) on Shenzhen’s start-up board ChiNext. The aggressive move by Beijing is designed to accelerate capital market structuring to reinvigorate an economy ravaged by coronavirus.

The scheme to launch a U.S.-style, registration-based IPO system on ChiNext was approved during a meeting overseen by President Xi Jinping, who stressed the need to counter economic headwinds with structural reforms, state broadcaster CCTV said.

China stepped up efforts to channel much-needed capital into virus-hit companies and innovative start-ups as Beijing battles an economic slump and competes for technological supremacy with the United States, Reuters said.
