Heard of Satis? It's a new type of toilet. Satis loos are controlled by an Android app called My Satis, so you use your smartphone to flush, air-dry yourself and even to release fragrance.

But it's now been reported that all Satis toilets have the same PIN code, and it can't be reset. So if you download the app, you can control ANY Satis toilet within Bluetooth range. You can imagine the mischief…

Security problems aside, I can't see the need for smartphone-controlled toilets. If nothing else, what happens when your battery runs down?
