Amazon's rumored wearable device reads your emotions by listening to your voice
Amazon already brings joy to the millions of people who receive its packages, but now it wants to know how you're feeling during the other 1,400 minutes in your day.

Bloomberg describes the device as a wrist-worn gadget marketed as a health and wellness product. It reportedly has "microphones paired with software" and "could be able to advise the wearer how to interact more effectively with others."

Other changes to Firefox that surfaced in version 66 ranged from customized private browsing sessions - such as letting a user enable add-ons while in so-called "porn mode" - to running multiple builds at the same time, a Firefox first.

Security engineers also patched 21 vulnerabilities, two of them labeled "Critical," Mozilla's most serious threat rating.

More than half the bugs - 11 all told - were ranked as "High," one step below Critical.
