TECHBITS Iffy Password Protocol Sphere of Influence Smartphone maker Yezz has joined the GoPro frenzy, announcing a smartphone that takes 360-degree photos and video. The Sfera launched this year at the annual CES conference with two specialized, 5-megapixel cameras designed to capture spherical images. Sfera uses software to stitch together 360-degree scenes and features a separate viewer to watch the 360-degree video come to life. A recent survey on password safety reveals only 38 percent of people take proper security measures when creating passwords for their Web accounts. The Cyber Savvy Quiz from Kaspersky Lab found that nearly 1 in 7 respondents confessed to keeping the same password for all of their online accounts. The Consumer Security Risks Survey also revealed that consumers store their passwords in easy-to-access places. More than half (57 percent) of respondents admitted to keeping their passwords on a piece of paper, in their phones, in text files on their computers or saved in the browser.

This plastic cup is made with built-in aromas and flavors that "trick" your brain into thinking you're drinking flavored water when you're just sipping regular water. The company plans to start shipping the cups in April. SOURCE: INDIEGOGO 8 // MARCH/APRIL 2016
