    Pro-democracy protesters targeted with malware on iOS, Android
    In an almost unheard-of claim, Lacoon Mobile Security has said that it has discovered a new spyware attack that targets both iOS and Android devices and which appears to be aimed specifically at Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters. Lacoon says it made the discovery while investigating the Android version, but did not clarify how the malware might be installed, or overcome the security built into iOS that has, thus far, kept it largely immune to serious malware or viruses....






  • Review: Tylt Energi 2K Travel Charger

    Review: Tylt Energi 2K Travel Charger
    Backup batteries and device chargers are objects that many users take for granted. They often only one-dimensional in functionality, restoring the batteries of the devices that people use every day through the outlet. But what if there was more to a charger? Tylt decided to offer consumers something a little different, adding an internal battery to an everyday charger. The Tylt Energi 2K Travel Charger is the result, meshing a charger that can be thrown in a bag with one of the company's Energi external battery packs. Would the Energi 2K be good enough to replace the chargers included with sma...

    Analysts: Apple Watch likely a hit, but will take time to mature
    Analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, while calling the Apple Watch "light years ahead of any other smartwatch on the market," nevertheless advised both clients and market watchers to expect "conservative" initial sales of the device in its first year. Like the iPod, which took three years to become the dominant force in music players, Munster said that "consumer application may be limited initially, until developers begin to create useful applications for the watch."...

  • BRUTAL : Two Great White Sharks Try To Bite Each Other

    BRUTAL : Two Great White Sharks Try To Bite Each Other
    shark-on-shark.jpg This is a short clip of two great white sharks trying to bite each other. After the clip, there's a bunch of speculation about whether or not the two were actually doing battle, or if the larger shark was going after the bait attached to the boat and the smaller shark just got in the way. What do you think? I bet they were just trying to kiss. Who said sharks don't participate in foreplay? "Scientists." Scientists don't know anything. What's the one thing a shark will never ask another shark for? "A blowjob." DING DING DING DING. Keep going for the video.
  • Free Candy!: Scary Clown Head Gumball Machine

    Free Candy!: Scary Clown Head Gumball Machine
    scary-clown-gumball-machine-1.jpg This is the scary clown head gumball machine built by Jesse Wroblewski of Toy-Creator. You can have as many free gumballs as you want provided you don't mind taking them from the nose of a scary clown. Me? I don't care where candy is coming from (including vans), I'm taking it. I ate an open lollipop off the sidewalk once. My girlfriend wouldn't kiss me for the whole rest of the day. Or the next day. Or the day after that. You know why? "She left you the moment the lollipop touched your lips." She was already walking away by the time I bent down to pick it up! We'd been going out for awhile, she knew what was coming. Keep going for a couple more shots.
  • WTF IS THAT?!: Premium Handjob Glove For Dudes

    WTF IS THAT?!: Premium Handjob Glove For Dudes
    handy-glove.jpg This is The Handie, a silicon glove made for men to pleasure themselves. It's the perfect glove for the man who's always dreamed of looking down and pretending Iron Man is giving them a furious handjob.
    The Handie Is the ultimate men's pleasure product, which utilizes your grip and gives you back control of your pleasure through state-of-the-art design and materials. The Handie's glove design and added features are unlike any other product for men. This is the real deal - an all-in-one gadget for guys! We like to call it, our Finishing Tool. The Handie has a chamber located on the back of the glove, which can be filled with any water-based lubricant (Use Water Based Lube Only). Just fill with your favorite water based lube, replace, and push on the cap to dispense lubrication into the palm of The Handie for comfort and pleasure. The Handie comes with a small, removable, vibrating bullet. The vibrator inserts into the pocket located on the pinky finger for a gentle vibration in the perfect sweet spot.
    The Handie is currently an IndieGoGo project, and $150 will get you a limited first run edition, and $50 will get you one from the second run. Could you imagine anybody walking in on you when you're using this thing? I mean, getting caught masturbating is embarrassing, but getting caught masturbating with some sort of oven mitt from the future? That's plain awesome and I'd even invite my roommates to come watch. No eye contact though, that's my only rule. I don't want anybody getting the wrong idea and falling in love. Keep going for a worthwhile video about the glove.

    Eating Your Friends & Lovers: 3D Dinosaur Cake Molds
    mini-dinosaur-cakes-1.jpg These are the £10 (~$16) silicon dinosaur mini cake molds available from Lakeland. Each two-sided set bakes two brontosaurus, two t-rex and two stegosaurus. What you do with them after that is your own business. Unless your business involves mashing dinosaur shaped mini cakes up your keister, in which case I'm afraid I'm going to need to hear about it in detail. Keep going for a shot of the actual molds.
  • Zombie Toothpicks (Make Everything Less Appetizing)

    Zombie Toothpicks (Make Everything Less Appetizing)
    zombie-toothpicks-1.jpg These are the reusable plastic zombie toothpicks available from Brazilian design company Meninos. $11 gets you a bag of six green and six gray zombies to poke in your *eyeballing photo* what is that, fried cheese? Fried okra? Fried okra is hands down one of my top five favorite foods. I could eat some with every meal and never get tired of it. Same goes for a mixed-berry crumble and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I'm pretty sure that's my favorite dessert. Did I ever tell you about the birthday where my girlfriend made a little soufflé size berry crumble and wanted me to eat it off her body? She burnt herself pretty bad, had to do the hospital. Plus ruined the sheets. Not that I care about the sheets, I'm just trying to provide details so you know I'm not lying. I am lying though -- it was really peach cobbler because fresh berries were out of season. Keep going for a couple more shots.

This is when we would get a light to fill in the shadows, or illuminate an otherwise dark work space. This is often why we get so many different types or sizes of lights. ...
