Security flaw left ‘smart’ chastity sex toy users at risk of permanent lock-in

Just because almost every gadget or appliance can be connected to the internet, doesn’t mean they should be.

And as security researchers recently found out, the consequences of having a major security flaw in one popular sex toy could have been catastrophic for tens of thousands of users. U.K.-based security firm Pen Test Partners said the flaw in the Qiui Cellmate internet-connect...

Apple goes to war with the gaming industry

Most gamers may not view Apple as a games company to the same degree that they see Sony with PlayStation or Microsoft with Xbox, but the iPhone-maker continues to uniformly drive the industry with decisions made in the Apple App Store. The company made the news a couple times late this week for App Store approvals. Once for denying a gaming app, and the other for approving one. The denial was Microsoft’s xCloud gaming app, something the Xbox folks weren’t too psyched about. Microsoft xC...

Google One now offers free phone backups up to 15GB on Android and iOS

Google One, Google’s subscription program for buying additional storage and live support, is getting an update today that will bring free phone backups for Android and iOS devices to anybody who installs the app — even if they don’t have a paid membership.
