I’m suddenly sad I missed DefCon this year

Apparently there was a DefCon talk re: this issue.

N.P. says she bought a We-Vibe in May and used it “several times” until she realized that it was sending data about her usage practices back to Standard Innovation’s servers, including when she used it, which vibration settings she used, and her email address.

Boner Bonus quote which clearly demonstrates the wonders of the modern world and makes me say “yeah, who the fuck needs flying cars?”:

The smartphone app lets users “customize” their We-Vibe experience, unlock app-only “bonus” vibration modes such as the “cha-cha-cha” and the “crest,” and “create unlimited custom playlists,”
