The gift of life is worth having, but what if you could give your dog a pill that could help it live longer? One company in America has claimed that it has developed just such a pill, and that it can slow down the ageing process for dogs.
It’s true to say that dogs tend to age about seven times faster than humans. A company called life advantage which produces supplements for humans has just developed an anti-ageing pill for dogs.
The pet supplement called canine health is designed to reduce oxidative stress which causes problems that are associated with ageing, including joint pain and stiffness; so a bit like cod liver oil for dogs I guess.
Whilst local vets have voiced their scepticism they do agree that some of the list of ingredients within canine health have been proven to help reduce arthritis symptoms in dogs.
The company is definitely charging a premium for this particular supplement, and is banking on people willing to spend between 30 and hundred and £20 a month on eight anti-ageing pills for their dogs.
We have just heard about the new virtual currency that Amazon are releasing very soon They have called it Amazon coins, and it is being introduced as a new form of tender for the purchase of apps, games and in Items via their Kindle Fire hardware. Lots of which found there way into people’s stockings this Christmas.
Amazon believes that this will make their customers who own a Kindle fire more easily able to spend money in the Amazon App Store. Time to tell the kids we have to sell my nintendo wii, well when I say my…. either way I held off on buying the Kindle Fire because you couldn’t download the videos for streaming, but with essentially free apps available, I could be tempted.
So what do that developers actually have to do in order to take advantage of this new currency? To be honest, developers don’t really need to do much. Those developers who already have apps within the App Store will actually get paid as usual in real money. If you’re a budding app developer and you want to get in on this at the start you need to get your app submitted and approved by April 25.
In order to give the new tender a boost, Amazon are going to be giving away tens of millions of pounds worth of free Amazon coins that can then be spent via the Kindle fire on apps.
It’s interesting to note that developers continue to report higher conversion rates on Amazon compares to other platforms. Amazon are increasingly trying to make their App Store more appealing to developers, as they know they have a fight on their hands in the form of Apple’s App Store.
