Cats Don't Need Translators?

from the Cat-People dept

Recently, Techdirt alerted you to "Bowlingual" the gadget that interpreted doggie moods. It seems that cats don't need this technology because cats have evolved to manipulate us with their meows. Isn't that special?

    What? Did someone fail to notice a dog's tail and ears as an indicator of their moods? Was that too complex?

    Who are the people?

    To hell with all this deciphering pet's moods crap, someone decipher women for me already!

    Animals are easy to figure out.

    Did you try to ask? Nicely? If it did not work, you may need to wait until we find a way to read minds noninvasively, from a distance :-) We are working on it, but progress is slow. NeuroProsthesis News

    Lately I've determined that women are easy to decipher: whatever you think they're thinking? You're wrong.
