How A Spam Filter Sent a Shock Through The Maker Of Tasers

The Securities and Exchange Commission began emailing police supplier Axon two months ago with urgent questions about its accounting.

On August 10, the Securities and Exchange Commission emailed Axon Enterprises, which makes police body cameras and Taser stun guns, with a few questions about the company’s accounting practices.

Many shoe designers put out new collections only twice a year–perhaps launching strappy sandals in the spring, and boots in the fall. M.Gemi, a direct-to-consumer luxury shoe startup, has totally nixed that model. It drops a new pair every single Monday. This week, for instance, it debuted a $198 slip-on sneaker made from crushed velvet, a material that seems...

Can your smartphone repel mosquitoes??

I’m standing on a fine line between highly amused and highly impressed with the LG K7i. Coming from India, and a scenario where necessity is the mother of invention, the K7i’s selling point is actually the fact that it repels mosquitoes. Built with a mesh on the back that emits ultrasonic waves at frequencies above the human hearing wavelength, the phone can actually meddle with a mosquito’s navigating system and therefore deter them from flying anywhere in the vicinity.

The K7i is a...

Experimenta 66


Magazine design and art direction. EXPERIMENTA's editor and publisher, Pier Luigi Cattermole, asked us to design the first issue for the new stage of the magazine ? a challenge we just had to accept.

Snapchat’s poor-selling Spectacles are another bitter blow for smart glasses

When the company behind Snapchat introduced a set of video-capturing eyeglasses in the fall of 2016, tech observers lined up to argue that Snap’s Spectacles wouldn’t be Google Glass all over again.

Why Hello Alfred Is Focused More On Its Workers And Less On Algorithms

On this episode of The Bottom Line podcast, CEO Marcela Sapone lays out her vision for turning service jobs into good jobs.

When Hello Alfred launched a few years ago, many naturally assumed that the service was exploitive, with the company’s “home managers” tackling household chores and running errands for folks while earning meager pay and no benefits. This, after all, is how most of the “gig economy” functions.
