Scientists deny that technology can have desires, but Angela Cavanaugh’s equipment helped lure her into her profession. As a lifelong photographer, she’d always loved taking photos, but it wasn’t until she bought herself a prograde DSLR camera that she realized how deep her love ran. The ideas of directing a session, composing shots, adjusting the lighting, and retouching images in Photoshop thrilled her and activated her best talents, and she decided to turn her excitement into a career. She founded Images by Angela Cavanaugh and began snapping professional shots.
Since then, Angela has studied under other professionals and built up her portfolio. She now engages in all kinds of photography, from organizing commercial-model shoots and studio family portraits to taping her camera to an RC car and letting it capture what it will—namely ankles and some dark thing that looks like asphalt. But Angela spends much of her time taking headshots for actors and business folk.

Steve and Melissa grew up around animals. After entering the pet industry, Steve felt that he could build a better, stronger dog-walking company—with a little help from technology. That's why he and Melissa founded Puppy Pronto. Their dog-walking service comes with a free lock box, which allows them to care for your pets while you're away without causing an unfortunate security breach. Once inside, they deck out your fridge with a barcode magnet. Scanning this sends you an email, so you know precisely when they arrived to walk your pet. They also send humans a link to a Google map of their canine's route. Alternatively, they can equip pups with a special camera that documents their walks. A bit of editing creates a polished, downloadable film so you can see the world through your dog's eyes. Tail-waggers in need of a place to crash have the option of staying at Steve and Melissa's place—in the company of their two poodles—or at the dog's own pad where they keep their favorite smells.
