Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

A dog in Turkey has wolfed down a mobile phone. The owner of the phone only discovered it was inside the mutt when he rang the number and heard the dog's stomach ringing.

The man, a petrol station attendant, initially thought the phone had been stolen by a motorist filling up with fuel, according to the Andolou news agency by way of Ananova.

But when he dialled the number he got the shock of his life when he heard his Nokia phone trilling from inside the pooch's tum.

The phone owner has now been, ahem, "reunited" with his handset. ®
