Flter: Blanket Privacy Coverage For All Your Networked Devices Made Easy

The moment you get onto the Internet, you can kiss privacy goodbye. When online, you are effectively putting your privacy out in the open, allowing Big Brother (AKA the government, not the reality TV series), your Internet service provider, and companies, to read into your web activities, search history, and even physical location. Most people are fine with this intrusion, but if you aren’t Flter is here to help. Flter is, btw, pronounced as ‘filter’ and intentionally spelt without an i. To be fair, it is not that we can’t keep ourselves private while online, we can, but the truth is, blanket configuration to cover all your devices for anonymity is a thing reserved for network administrators – who are the computer world’s equivalent of rocket scientists).

This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked

I would like to think the trend of not tucking in shirt stems from the fact that it gets untucked as easily as it was tucked, and as every men will agree, that is a hell of an annoyance. But what if you really need to tuck it in, like with formal attires? Well, wear a inverted garter belt then. Don’t laugh. I am serious because that’s what the NV S-Holder essentially is. It comes in a set of two, one for each leg, and it works pretty much like the garter belts wore by women in the 50s/60s to hold up their stockings. However, unlike the women’s undergarment accessory which basically pull up the stockings, NS S-Holder keeps the shirt pulled down thus preventing it from being untucked.
