Taningia danae is a big deep-sea squid with massive, manta-like fins, stubby arms, and a pair of fist-sized light organs on the end of two of its appendages.
Those are the largest light organs ever discovered, and we now know from observations of a live specimen that it actually uses them to blind deep-sea prey.
For $50, this tiny box will keep everything you do online anonymous
From National Security Agency spying to governments blocking portions of the Internet in times of unrest, recent controversies have demonstrated just how little freedom we actually have online
But what if there were a way to stay hidden 24/7 on the Internet, free from detection and censorship?

THIS IS INSECURE. DO NOT BACK THIS. The hardware is an off-the-shelf alibaba product that’s $20 a unit. The box’s root password has been easily cracked. The wireless SSHD is the same for every box, allowing one owner to easily attack other owners of the box. Worse still, it’s being marketed to protestors, journalists and whilsteblowers as a secure device, when actually it’s pea-brained configuration of tor that in some ways makes it easier to attack than if you were connected to a public wireless network. The creator of this device has lied about every stage of it’s inception and purpose.
Wired did a good writeup of the discoveries here: http://www.wired.com/2014/10/anonabox-backlash/
This is a great, interesting, insightful, long read.
