The iPhone Case that Runs Android… WHAATT??? | Eye by ESTI






Everyone knows that I’m an iPhone user but not necessarily an Apple fanboy. I’ve played around with phones that run Android and I can appreciate the feature-richness that’s typically unavailable on Apple’s flagship devices. But what if you could have an iPhone with some of the benefits that come with Android? What if you could have an iPhone with an extra battery, extra display, extra storage, additional SIM slots, an IR remote, AND wireless charging? As it turns out, the engineers at ESTI Inc, are working to make this possible. Read More →

The Feds Drop a Child Porn Case to Avoid Exposing a Tor Exploit






There’s something to be said when sacrifices are made for the greater good. At least that’s what the Department of Justice wants us to think.

The Tor network can be used for harboring child pornography, but it’s also be used in foreign countries be freedom fighters who work against repressive regimes (think North Korea). Read More →
