http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Internet, Security... at least, that's what the Paraben Porn Detection Stick website claims. (And you thought I was mounting my anti-religious warhorse! For shame!) Paraben are a 'forensics' company that specialize in a wide variety of kinda-cool solutions to odd, and mostly technological, problems. The Porn Stick, much like their 'Chat Stick' uncovers chat logs, is all about finding porn on a target system. Just plug it in, run an EXE and watch as it sorts porn into 'Suspect' and 'Highly Suspect' folders. It even searches by file header rather than extension, which is 'geek speak' for 'if you're gonna hide porn, you gotta do it properly'. How does it detect porn though? 'Analysis of flesh tones, shapes and curvatures, face detection and body part separation.' I kid you not, that's what the How It Works section says. It even capitalizes it: Body Part Separation. Ew. They claim a success rate of 99%, which is pretty impressive! The thing is, I can't get my mind off an even better use of the Porn Stick. I travel a lot, and often I'm alone. Sometimes I get lonely... but if I had a Porn Stick, I could just plug it into a random computer and harvest all of the porn; problem solved.
