Global condom tech on parade

Spray-on and easy-on condoms

From Germany comes an apparently serious effort to develop the first spray-on condom. I say "apparently" because the "Spray Kondom" site is only in German and I don't trust Google's translation tools to render foreign text with sufficient subtley to reveal tongue-in-cheekness. But Reuters bit.

The idea is to spray on a latex coating that cures in 5 seconds, ready to roll. The spray can is actually a sort of housing in which the whole disturbing process takes place, rather "like a car wash," the inventors muse. That's not helping.

Spray Kondom could be on the market by 2008.

Also, from South Africa comes word of the easy-on Pronto condom that virtually flies out of its wrapper onto the wearer.

Outcry over iPhone 'Error 53' and bad USB Type-C cables

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
