      there was that 'FUFMe' device a while back that was supposed to work over cell phones, as I recall...

      Some people simply wanna do the cyber-sex thing with actual remote devices connected to actual remote humans. Maybe that's what it is. But I wonder if lag times might change the dynamics a bit too much...

    That's a remarkably clean and healthy looking fox.

    Are we suggesting that's how Firefox is now?

    Damn. I do wish they wouldn't keep swapping images around

    Really, who gives a shit?

    Mozilla obviously needs a better slogan to promote this adult toy security rating service...

      Compelling use case, granted. I still think it's kinda missing the matching T-shirt with a QR code on its front and back that would let anyone interested download the appropriate app. How else is anyone interested going to get clued in about when to try what...?
