The $90 WiFi Pineapple is now in its fourth iteration. The gadget does man-in-the-middle attacks on WiFi networks, allowing its owner to snoop on all the traffic, keylog password entries, and generally compromise the shit out of anyone using WiFi in the area. It's a damned good reason to use a VPN, like The Pirate Bay's IPREDator. Also: it has epic rickrolling potential.
The WiFi Pineapple Mark IV improves tremendously on previous models in both hardware capabilities and ease of use. Where the Mark III brought a completely redesigned web management interface the Mark IV continues with plug & play 3G / 4G connectivity, automatic presistent reverse SSH tunnels and a simplistic status page to name a few. The new control center shows at a glance connected clients hostnames, IP addresses, Karma'd SSID as well as signal strength, idle time and network throughput.
Hardware wise the Mark IV is built on a powerful Atheros AR9331 SoC at 400 MHz--over double that of the previous generation--and sports two Ethernet ports, 802.11 b/g and N connectivity, as well as most notably a USB 2.0 port, allowing for expansions like mass storage and 3G / 4G modems. *modem sold separately.
Also it's black, which adds at least 50 hacker points.

The “Beat the Boss phone” is an £27 micro-telephone built into a Bluetooth headset with only trace amounts of metal in its construction; it is lozenge-shaped and is designed to be rectally smuggled into prisons, jails and courtrooms.
As warned last week, Nokia has relaunched its classic 3310 model candybar phone. The good news: it’s a pretty little burner that honors and updates the original’s design. The bad news: that’s the only connection, and it’s otherwise a modern dumbphone with no clear picture yet on how well-designed the interface and hardware is. It’s […]

Although there will never be a consensus about the best way to make coffee, any coffee connoisseur will agree that controlling the grind of your beans and balancing water temperature are the keys to a tasty cup. Since your plastic coffee pot doesn’t really allow for that kind of customization, going back to the French […]
