WonderCube Combines 8 Functions In One Cubic Inch For Your Phone

The WonderCube combines functions of smartphone accessories into a single appliance…that only takes up one square inch of space. The WonderCube is small enough to fit on a keychain, and enables users to utilize their phone to its fullest capacity at all times. The WonderCube is compatible with all current devices, from Android to iPhone.

Built-In Cable

The Wondercube hides within its one inch frame a three inch USB cord. When not in use, the cord retracts completely inside the WonderCube, and can be extended in a pinch when you need to connect your phone to a friend’s computer.

Charge On-the-Go

The WonderCube can charge your phone in two ways. Of course, it can be plugged into any USB capable device, but users also have the option of plugging in a 9V battery to the WonderCube for over 3 hours of battery life. This function comes in handy when camping, or during a dreaded power outage.

 Extra Memory

The USB functionality is not simply for charging or connection capabilities. The WonderCube also offers anywhere from 16 to 64GB of extra memory. Although this function is not yet usable on iPhones, Mutants DesignLab is hard at work to make it happen as soon as possible.

LED Flashlight

The WonderCube includes a small light to be used if necessary. Since the WonderCube hangs on your keychain, the WonderCube offers accessibility beyond the flashlight apps on your smartphone.

Phone Stand

A non-electronic function of the WonderCube is its ability to work as a stand for your phone. Micro suction cups attach to the back of your phone, and allow it to be propped up vertically or horizontally for portrait or landscape viewing.

How to Get a WonderCube

As the company behind the WonderCube is an IndieGoGo start-up, the product is still being produced at the current time, and supplies are currently very limited. They are expected to be available in August 2015, and will cost $69. Extra flash drive space can be purchased as well. Mutants DesignLab is also offering bulk sales of 10 WonderCubes for $459.

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

There comes a time when we may be searching online and don’t want the browser to remember our footsteps. The reasons don’t always have to be what we obviously think of as the main reason; for example, sometimes, you may not want Safari to remember your passwords or prompt you to enter your password when surfing the web.

Whatever the reason, we may think that we are totally in the clear with Private Browsing on Safari and the other browsers on a Mac. However, a quick Terminal command can bring up every website you’ve visited. How do you do this? Also, how do you clear your tracks for good? We will provide both answers and more today.

    What Does Private Browsing Do?

    When activated, Private Browsing on Safari prevents your browsing history from being kept in the history tab of the application. Along with this, it doesn’t autofill information that you have saved in the browser. In this mode, you essentially become incognito and any references of previous use is essentially hidden when you are in private mode.

    For example: if you are on Facebook or filling out a form and some information or your login is already filled in in the spaces provided, this is called autofill. It’s activated by simply clicking Safari next to the Apple symbol in the menubar and selecting Private Browsing, then clicking “OK” to the prompt.

    The reasons behind private mode differ for each individual. While we won’t go into all of those reasons, one thing that is  important to remember is that private browsing doesn’t forget the websites you visit. As we will see later on, Macs keep a second copy of the websites you visit in either mode. If you are in frantic mode looking for a solution to this, look no further.

    The Terminal Archive

    While Safari does a good job of keeping your search history out of prying eyes in the history tab, there is a less-than-obvious way to view a full list of visited websites on Mac. This is done in Terminal; the command-line emulator that allows you to make changes to your Mac.

    Terminal is located in the Utilities folder on your Mac. Once activated, simply add the command:

    dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host

    Once you hit “enter”, a list of the visited sites appear. Showing only the domains, the sites appear in a format of:

    Key: h_name :(website domain)ipv4 :1

    However, there’s no need to fear—there is a way you can clear this information from Terminal with a command that’s just as simple.

    Clearing Your Tracks

    Just as simply as you were able to enter the command to view the websites, you can clear the cache that Terminal showed you with the comamnd:

    dscacheutil -flushcache

    As the command denotes, this literally “flushes” the domains from Terminal. This does not prevent the record from continuing to be recorded for future sites, however, so if that’s an issue for you, repeat this process regularly.

    Other Browsers and Private Browsing

    Other browsers have this form of privacy mode for their service. They promise many of the same things as Safari, but they do not have the same Terminal issue due to how this command only presents websites visited on Safari (the browser Macs come shipped with).

    If you use Firefox, you’ll notice that its private mode is also known as Private Browsing. Chrome calls private mode Incognito, while Internet Explorer refers to it as InPrivate Browsing. Opera is the newest to the scene, denoting it as Private Tab. Safari is the oldest well-known browser with this feature.

    As you can see, despite Private Browsing not being 100% private, Terminal allows for your browser to be. In what ways has Terminal helped your life or allowed you to become more productive? Let us know in the comments below.
