Scooter Gets Flamethrower Attached, We’re Glad It’s Illegal

Sometimes, only sometimes, we can understand why some people have uncontrollable road rage. After all, there are some terrible drivers out there. But, we're of the mind that two wrongs don't make a right; and, well, this is definitely a wrong. But, we have to give credit where credit is due, and this is a pretty fantastic use of technological ingenuity. You just might want to keep your distance.

Conceptual Fire Extinguisher puts out flames by throwing balls at it

Last year there was a huge fire in my town that did some damage to my place of work. It was the first time “devastating fire” ever really hit home with me and I’m not ashamed to admit I have a slight fear of another fire being started to finish what the first one didn’t. I like to be safe and feel safe and I actually keep a fire resistant body shield in my vehicle. You can never be too safe. I’d really like to the Capsule fire extinguisher brought to life, I’d feel a lot safer with one around.

Many airlines taken precaution by not allowing battery powered laptop on the flight. So I don’t think Sony is off the hook yet on this matter.

Fitbit to users with irritated skin: “take a break” until it heals

Fitbit to users with irritated skin: “take a break” until it heals

Fitbit is no stranger to skin irritation complaints. Last year, the company recalled its Force fitness band following numerous skin irritation complaints. Those who wanted a replacement could get one, but the company maintained that only a small number of users had experienced the allergic reaction to the bands. That issue hasn't gone away, however, and users have complained of on-going irritation troubles. As a result, Fitbit isn't doing another recall -- it is telling wearers to stop wearing it so much.
