US morning television host Matt Lauer, recently fired from NBC’s Today for sexually harassing women in terrible ways for years, had a door lock button under his desk. Who the hell installed that? we all wondered. But the answer may be: nobody. You can just buy one off Amazon.
Padlocks have looked the same for almost 2000 years. But smartphone accessory company, Dog & Bone (rhyming slang for phone – get it?) has given the padlock a modern twist with a secure Bluetooth unlocking mechanism. They call it the LockSmart.
