What's the count of squidly things you now have adorning your household? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)
One of those would look really great if you attached it to your belt. You could carry all kinds of things with it. No need for pockets. And it would be great in security-aware places where bags are discouraged but you still need to carry all kinds of things. You could also use one if you need to walk a large number of dogs at once.
Looks more like a shower man-o-war to me! Or some kind of shower medusa. Mmm, I can feel those refreshing nematocysts already.
[off-topic] Have many people read or had experience with Intel PC remote assistance or TPM chips. They have discontinued the product Intel drivers and software(circuity is probable still there)
This is a fairly new one, not sure you've caught it yet :/ I got a warning message in my Gmail a few days ago around midnight from US Bank stating my security was compromised, ironically I thought "that" message was a phishing scam until I started looking it up.
Wanted to delete my previous comment regarding Epsilon, just realized you already had it covered. My bad Bruce :/ Please don't take that as an insult. Peace

We have all been told about the "Internet Kill Switch" however a little old lady in Georgia (Europe) managed to take most of Armenia "off line" whilst out "foraging for copper" (she now faces three years in jail).
However ther is a serious side to this BT and Cable providers have been recently experiancing problems in South East London (SE4 area) due to "drive by cable pulling".
It appears that due to unemployment and the steadily rising price of copper "copper foraging" has started in the UK. And pulling multiple pair copper cables out of the ground is now sufficiently profitable for people to start doing it big time.
Apparently it's a bit more difficult than stealing manhole covers but not much, and the repairs can take some time (ie more than a couple of weeks) In the mean time many are turning to "wireless Internet" which has in turn made the mobile networks in Lewisham, Deptford and surrounding areas virtualy unusable...
