This new router will slow your internet speeds to a crawl – and you’ll be glad it did

When I was a kid, I didn’t have access to an Internet-connected smartphone or tablet filled with all sorts of interesting ways to help me pass the time. But that’s an argument I’ll try not to bring up (too much) when I’ll eventually have to talk to my own kids about how much time they’re spending online compared versus homework or chores. No, my plan is to limit their mobile device use without taking their gadgets away, and now there’s a company that can help me do it. More →

Virtual Reality will allow this man to live someone else’s life for a month

Virtual reality is getting better and better, with companies such as Facebook, Samsung, Google and others growing more interested in offering such entertainment options to customers in the future. But one artist is already determined to push his limits and experiment virtual reality in a completely different way — and he’s looking for your help to make it possible.

Kickstarter Anonabox Tor Router Scam

The Anonabox Tor browser might be a huge hoax despite topping $500,000 on Kickstarter

The Anonabox Tor browser might be a huge hoax despite topping $500,000 on Kickstarter

Anonabox is a tiny Wi-Fi router that’s supposed to bring Tor-grade encryption to all online activity performed on a computer connecting to the Internet through the device. The gadget has already taken Kickstarter by storm, raising well over $500,000 in just a couple of days from more than 7,700 backers, thus significantly topping its original $7,500 goal. However, the device appears to be a huge hoax, as its creator is simply showing off a gadget on Kickstarter that’s identical to a regular Wi-Fi router that’s already sold on Alibaba for around $20, failing to explain the similarities in a professional manner.
