06.09.2017

Mario’s Profession Nintendo recently updated a profile of Mario on the video game publisher’s Japanese website. The profile describes Mario’s various interests such as soccer and car racing. However, it notes he was once a plumber a long time ago. A rough translation of the profile through Google Translate says “Actually, there seems to have been work on ‘plumber’ long ago.” Video game site Kotaku seems to have a cleaner translation of the Japanese profile to English: “All around sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, he [Mario] does everything cool.

Audiobook Prank In an April Fool’s Day prank this year Amazon introduced Petlexa, an animal-friendly version of its Alexa voice assistant. Nonetheless, now the spoof is becoming a reality with the launch of audiobooks for pets who may be home alone. Today, Audible announced a new brand of books with Cesar Millan. He is a longtime dog behaviourist and the Emmy-nominated host of the TV series ‘Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan’. The series, Audible for Dogs, aims to help make dogs “calmer and happier”. Titles include “A Dog’s Purpose,” “Soldier Dogs” and “The Art of Racing in the Rain.” Academic Study According to Audible, the series was inspired by a 2015 academic study. It found dogs that listen to audiobooks were more likely to have lower stress when left alone than those that listened to music. As a result, Audible teamed up with Milan’s Dog Psychology Center to study 100…
