Samsung Mobile has announced the US-wide launch of its media centre platform, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295605==http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones-accessories/GT-B9150AKYATT" rel='nofollow'>HomeSync</a>. Consumers can use their Galaxy smartphone or tablet to control entertainment choices on their TV, as well as upload and download mobile content using its 1TB secure storage. Originally <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295604==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/24/provides.1tb.media.storage.for.mobile.devices.user .accounts/" rel='nofollow'>unveiled</a> in February, the $300 device is set to be available across the US beginning October 6, 2013. <br />

<strong>Petcube gadget provides long distance interaction with one's pet</strong><br />
<br />
The San Francisco startup Petcube has successfully reached its $100,000 Kickstarter goal in one week. Intended to provide pet owners with the ability to monitor and interact with their pet remotely, users of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295603==http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petcube/petcube-stay-closer-to-your-pet" rel='nofollow'>Petcube</a> can connect to the device using one's home Wi-Fi network. Users can view their pet with its built-in wide angle camera, and have a 'conversation' using its speakers and microphone. A controllable laser pointer, attached to an internal moveable platform, allows for further play and exercise with a pet when not at home. <br />
<br />
Petcube is 4 x 4 x 4 inch box, accompanied by hooks for various mounting options. Encased in aluminum, its front panel is glass, protecting its HD resolution camera. Petcube is powered with a mini-USB power adapter, and possesses a notification LED light. Expected to retail for $200 upon its 2014 release, Kickstarter backers can pre-order Petcube for $150. Other pledge levels remain available, and pledges will be received until November 5, 2013.<br />
