Confirmed.

Shipped.

Delivered!

These notifications have kept me sane through
the pandemic. Between working from home, doing the dishes and dying to step out
– the kind delivery bhaiyas were
always the reason behind the much-needed excitement during these stay-at-home
days.

Now that we’ve all gotten used to (read: totally
hooked to) online shopping, how can we not exploit the biggest, most-awaited

The maker of a male chastity toy that was vulnerable to a hack attack has suggested the device can be easily removed with a screwdriver.

Researchers found a flaw in Cellmate’s app that could have let hackers simultaneously remotely lock all the devices in use, with no manual release.

Now the Chinese firm has defended the product, saying it can be cracked open.

It added that anybody trapped in their chastity toy could also call its customer hotline to be released.

The flaw was found by security firm Pen Test Partners, which shared its findings with Guandong-based Qiui, which makes the Cellmate toy.

As well as being able to lock devices, the researchers discovered a way to fool the server into disclosing the registered name of each device owner, among other personal details, as well as the co-ordinates of every location from where the app had been used.

A “disinfection” cabinet that zaps coronavirus could be the must-have gadget this Christmas as manufacturers launch a range of anti-COVID appliances amid demand for professional levels of hygiene in UK households.

The cleaning cabinet uses UV light to kill bacteria and viruses on the surfaces of personal objects such as keys, mobile phones, bags and toys.

The gadget, which looks like a microwave and costs £199, has been put on the market by the electrical brand Beko.

It is part of the brand’s “Hygiene Shield” range, which also includes a fridge with a disinfection drawer and tumble dryer with a UV setting. The products were rushed into production after a poll of Beko customers in 31 countries found widespread concerns about domestic hygiene.

Can this Irish gadget clear the air of Covid?

October 8, 2020 | gadget | No Comments

Are we all tired of talking about coronavirus yet? It has been the topic of conversation for most of 2020 – and rightly so, given the situation in recent months. And it seems like we will be talking about it for some months to come. We are staring down the barrel of increased restrictions, and facing a winter where Covid will be an ever-present threat.

While we wait, we can keep doing as advised: wash our hands, wear a mask, limit our contacts and hope that we don’t get a call from the HSE to say we have been in close contact with a confirmed case.

But what about the times when we can’t keep our distance? Or where ventilation is poor? Air quality is an issue when it comes to the transmission of Covid-19.

There are a number of options out there to try to disinfect the air, but

A security flaw in a hi-tech chastity belt for men made it possible for hackers to remotely lock all the devices in use simultaneously.

The internet-linked sheath has no manual override, so owners might have been faced with the prospect of having to use a grinder or bolt cutter to free themselves from its metal clamp.

The sex toy’s app has been fixed by its Chinese developer after a team of UK security professionals flagged the bug.

They have also published a workaround.

This could be useful to anyone still using the old version of the app who finds themselves locked in as a result of an attacker making use of the revelation.

Any other attempt to cut through the device’s plastic body poses a risk of harm.

A Batman -style gadget designed to lasso a suspects’ legs together is being tested for use by British police.

The BolaWrap is a handheld device that fires a kevlar cord at 513ft per second which tangles around targets from up to 25ft away.

It is intended to allow officers to immobilise suspects without having to resort to force and could be used instead of the taser.

Tom Smith, president of Wrap Technologies which produces the gadget, said: “I had a meeting with the Home Office this week. UK police are looking at it at a national level.”

Smith said the device’s 160 decibel noise exceeds UK health and safety limits. His team is working on making the device

RHA is a relatively unknown brand in India, but these earphones are something everyone needs to know about. The RHA TrueConnect 2 is a very stylish pair of wireless earphones, designed and engineered in the UK, as the packaging claims.

I particularly like the simplistic design. The earphones are made of a rubberised plastic, which has a nice tactile feel to it. The unique box is made of a combination of metal and plastic that offers a satisfying click when you open and close it. The case also has a built-in battery pack that charges the earphones while they rest in the box. While the earphones last for around nine hours, the case offers another 35 hours of total power. These earphones come with seven pairs of silicone ear tips—two sets of small, three sets of medium and two sets of large.

The RHA TrueConnect 2 uses Bluetooth 5.0 and

Despite what some haters may say, iced coffee is a viable drink of choice all year long. When you’re not in the mood for a hot beverage, iced coffee is a bit more refreshing, but it can be hard to make at home when you have to wait for your warm cup to cool down. Thankfully, other people seem to have this problem too, and that’s why the genius HyperChiller exists.

Mothers are using a label maker to tidy their homes with military precision for spring, eliminating the hassle of rummaging in drawers forever.

The craze began when an Australian woman posted photos of her immaculately organised home in a Facebook group.

She told members she used the $460 ‘Explore Air 2’ Cricut from arts and crafts store Spotlight to label storage boxes and pantry baskets in the new house her family has just moved into in Melbourne.

The machine – which creates labels on everything from cardboard and vinyl to thicker materials like leather – heralds the end to rooting and misplacing belongings because the contents of containers can be clearly displayed on the front.
