This is a novel concept from SHOT Show.
Review via The Loadout Room:
I went through a lot of gloves before I found the PIG Full Dexterity Tactical gloves. When I first started, I right away rejected any gloves that included special plastic or kevlar molded knuckle guards. I figured that while shooting in competition or training, or even in use on the street, having a hunk of plastic banging around and adding to the thickness of my hand would hinder more than help. Stick to the basics. Very few of the gloves I tried out below the $50 price point did the basics well.

Brian Hartman and Sean Hendickson from Progressive FORCE Concepts talk a little about where you should locate magazine pouches on your plate carrier kit.

This means you’ll be consistent in locating your pistol mags under stress rather than hunting for where you located them on your vest.
Technology Review reports that an attacker my be able to pick up encryption keys from cellphones with a TV antenna:
The antenna was detecting radio signals “leaking” from the transistors on the chip inside the phone performing the encryption calculations. Transistors leak those signals when they are active, so the pattern of signals from a chip provides an eavesdropper a representation of the work the chip is doing. When Kenworthy tuned his equipment to look in the right place, a clear, regular pattern of peaks and troughs appeared on his computer screen. They could be seen to come in two varieties, large and small, directly corresponding to the string of digital 1s and 0s that make up the encryption key.
Technology Review reports that if you have a smartphone that runs a version of Android, be careful about the links you click:
A chilling demonstration to a small, packed room at the RSA security conference today showed how clicking a single bad Web link while using a phone running Google’s Android operating system could give an attacker full remote control of your phone.
The next generation of body armor development will be focused on the need for a multi-functional, modular, scalable protection system that improves soldier physiological performance while reducing system/component redundancy and logistic footprint…
