Happy Springbot Thanksgiving! A big thank you to everyone who brought food in for today's holiday! Just as a reminder, our next Springbot get-together will be the Holiday Party on Tuesday December 10th, so be sure to RSVP!
Some topics this week...
1. Contacts by Warby Parker. Warby Parker has just unveiled its newest product launch...contacts! Named Scout, "customers with prescriptions can order a six-day trial of contacts for $5 before purchasing a three-month supply for $110." CNBC 2. Shop Marie Kondo. The iconic cleaning guru, Marie Kondo, is going to e-comm and launching her own line of products. "Instead of imparting further organizational wisdom or deepening her theories of domestic joy, though, she’s trying something new: selling $275 distressed-brass vases and other housewares and wellness products to fill up all that newly empty space." Anyone need a tuning fork and quartz crystal for $75? You can read more here, The Atlantic and check out the online shop here, KonMari 3. If you're an Android user, listen up. Google has confirmed a camera security threat that could affect "hundreds of millions" Android users. "What did the researchers discover? Oh, only a way for an attacker to take control of smartphone camera apps and remotely take photos, record video, spy on your conversations by recording them as you lift the phone to your ear, identify your location, and more."
