    We talk DDoS, Mirai, Danny Kaye, Toto, saunas, IoT diapers, and more!’

    When I first read that in my dead tired state I thought it said ‘IoT, diapers …’. Observe the comma. I had this horrible thought and wanted to say ‘Please don’t tell me they have IoT nappies…’ Looking at it again I believe that that’s exactly what you were getting at. Unbelievable. I don’t even want to know. I do but I don’t. Whoever is behind those is seriously disturbed and that’s an extreme understatement. I won’t say any thoughts I have about safety issues and also legal issues but I certainly have a number of the latter ones - namely regarding the designers conduct.
