T-Mobile Made a Real Gin and Called It “5Gin” Because of Course

Time to Track Sh*t: Samsung’s SmartTag is 50% Off

Smart tracking devices became all the rage in 2021 for reasons I can’t quite figure out. Samsung and Apple both joined the party of trackers, even as companies like Tile have existed for years.
