We live in a great city that’s full of opportunity and tons of exciting events, concerts, fitness-related activities and much more. And it doesn’t get better than combining two of these at the same time. That’s exactly what the Red Bull Wings for Life World Run aims to do: tackling fitness and charity in one go!

Ever wonder what it would be like if we introduced our tech apps to the animal world? Apps like Fitbit, Meetup, Happn etc. That’s kind of exactly what the tech company Wondermento did when they introduced The WonderWoof: a bow tie device that connects to your dog’s collar and, via a bluetooth connection and an app, allows you to track their activity. You can check whether your dog is getting the right amount of exercise, sleep and food. Whether you are at home or away, get real-time updates via the free app and know if your dog is running, sleeping, playing, and walking. You can also connect and meet with other dog lovers in your area with map-enabled social features on the app. Rumour has it t lhere might be a whiskers edition for you cat lovers out there soon enough!…

GOT NEW

With less than 4 days remaining to the much-awaited Game of Thrones Season 6 premiere, I personally can’t wait to see Jon Snow back in action! *Spoiler Alert* We ended Season 5 with a lot of gasps, broken hearts and a lost hope for the people of the wall. This season, however, will be about all about survival and the great fight between the living and the dead (or so I assume anyway). We’ve got all the latest merchandise, apparel, video box-sets and stationery available to help you get your geek on! All merchandise is available here Last but not the least, you obviously can’t mention Game of Thrones and not think of the Iron Throne. We will have the  Iron Throne at Virgin Megastore at The Dubai Mall starting tomorrow until May 5th. Come in, take a picture, post it online on our Facebook…
