*Wearable tech is increasingly popular these days. You’ve seen them: those electronic devices strapped to wrists that allegedly guide users to better health and fitness. They’re supposed to help you, not hurt you, right?
Dina Mitchell claims she was wearing her Fitbit Flex 2 device when it spontaneously exploded, leaving her with second-degree burns on her wrist.

Mitchell received treatment at an urgent care facility, where a doctor removed pieces of rubber and plastic from her arm! Continue reading →
Amen to that, I said, and plowed into that article.
However, although they wrote that gender wasn’t an issue, it became clear really quickly that the article was very heavily focused on women, and I felt very strongly that we can’t leave the guys out of this!

New Coke (kidding — Google it). The microwave (my grandmother?s favorite — “How in God’s good name does it heat up the cup of coffee without heating the walls of the oven???,” she’d always ask ). The personal computer. And that ubiquitous smartphone.
