Wearable accessories keep your thoughts safe

It's official: Your tinfoil hat is now old hat. This series of accessories is designed to protect your precious thoughts in style.

The Anti-NIS Accessories, created by Lisa Kori Chung and Caitlin Morris for Benetton's research studio Fabrica, are all about maintaining the privacy of your own thoughts.

The 404 809: Where it's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday (podcast)

The 404 Podcast simply wouldn't exist in its current state without the help of Natali Morris, and today we're throwing a big send-off for our favorite guest host, replete with flowers, gifts, special chat room liasons, best-of moments, Natali's list things she will and won't miss, and plenty of Boyz II Men.

We also can't let her leave without doing a few choice impersonations, since she's just so good at them. If you didn't get a chance to say goodbye in the chat room this morning, you can wish her well on Twitter and follow her post-CNET career on her blog.

It's not a goodbye forever, though--just the end of Natali Thursdays on The 404. You'll definitely see her on future episodes, and we wish her the best in the meantime!

The 404 Digest for Episode 809

Our favorite Natali moments:

Natali plays an unnerving game of Marry/Boff/Kill. We try to guess Natali's weight, and it doesn't end well. Natali's first (of many) freak-outs on the show. Our favorite picture of Natali. Don't be mad at me!
