  1. Wrong port! Wrong port!

    All the rumors blogs say that Apple is discontinuing the 1/8" headphone jack.

      What are they going to do, create a new plug, call it "FireOctavo," and make it look a lot like a 1/8" headphone jack but incompatible?

  2. And I thought #internetofshit was just a clever hashtag.

    What's EXTRA beautiful is that this thing's app has a selection screen, where you can choose Oral, Underarm, or Rectal, and then it give you a little animation - if you select oral, the little stick spins into a stick figure's mouth, or underarm, it spins under the stick figure's armpit, and rectal …

    It just kind of zooms in and fades.

    Before I checked in on that, I was TERRIFIED, pondering what animations they MIGHT have used.

    (For the record, separate from any IoT heebie-jeebies you might have (and I'm not gonna say you aren't justified), it IS a pretty comfortable oral thermometer, and fast. Shut off all the "share my data" functions, and it's still a cheap, effective thermometer that I find easier and more pleasant to use than a Walgreens cheapie.)
