Scuf’s new PS4 controller adds wireless play and new customizable side buttons
- Custom console game controller maker Scuf is today announcing a new custom PlayStation 4 peripheral that sports an additional two buttons.
- In the absence of an official Sony-made controller in the vein of Microsoft’s Xbox One Elite, this new Scuf model is about as close to a pro gamepad you can get for the PS4.
- Other options include the wireless Hori Onyx and the pair of official licensed pro gaming models from Razer and Nacon.
- The new product line, called Scuf Vantage, sports two so-called “sax” buttons that are described as “unique side-mounted right and left” buttons and positioned on either side of the controller next to the existing bumper and trigger buttons.
- In addition to that, the new side “sax” buttons will add an extra layer of customization for players who really want to try and replicate the full range of input commands a keyboard and mouse combo allows.

Comcast is leaking the names and passwords of customers' wireless routers
- Comcast has just been caught in a major security snafu: revealing the passwords of its customers’ Xfinity-provided wireless routers in plaintext on the web.
- This means that anyone with your account number and street address number (e.g. the 1425 in “1425 Alder Ave,” no street name, city, or apartment number needed), both of which can be found on your paper bill or in an email, will instantly be given your router’s SSID and password, allowing them to log in and use it however they like or monitor its traffic.
- This only affects people who use a router provided by Xfinity/Comcast, which comes with its own name and password built in.
- So until further notice all of Comcast’s Xfinity customers with routers provided by the company are at risk.
- What will likely happen is Comcast will issue a notice and ask users to change their router passwords at large.
AT&T has launched a programmable LTE button for businesses
- AT&T has introduced a new product called the LTE-M button, a programmable button that businesses can deploy to allow customers to place orders or send alerts.
- The LTE-M button isn’t designed for consumers, but for businesses: it can be programmed and issued with a custom label — and ordered in quantities of 500.
- Engadget notes that the device sounds a bit like Amazon’s Dash buttons — branded devices that allow you to reorder a specific product with a click — and explains that the product runs on Amazon Web Services’ Internet of Things 1-Click service.
- But unlike the Dash buttons, AT&T’s offerings connect to the carrier’s LTE-M network, and can be customized for whatever a company wants, such as soliciting feedback in public places, ordering specific products, or generating alerts for things like trash cans or oil tanks that need servicing, and more.
