South Koreans no longer have to wonder what their dogs are trying to tell them. A cell phone company claims that you can upload a recording of your dog to a canine translation service. The company will sell you a text message of what the dog supposedly wants to say, like "I am frustrated," or "I love you," or, possibly, "Timmy fell in the well." Those of us who don't want to pay for South Korean cell phone service can probably just shake one of those Magic 8 balls.
