“Please me with your code!” Could possibly be screamed by some techie lover! Computers are necessary in today’s life, and they control more than a person can even comprehend. There are things like vehicles, that can be hacked and controlled from afar. Well, what if a vibrator could be hacked, too? Oh no. It can be hacked.
