Cause for Concern 

Your pillow may be harboring numerous fungi and bacteria, which could be exacerbating your allergies or asthma. You can disinfect all you like, but they will probably come back. It seems to me that the best solution would be to wash you pillows every now and again, but keep your pillowcases very clean. Or, not worry about it as it's probably not a big deal.

Your next cell phone may learn to identify you by observing your gait. Many of the problems with this sort of system are mostly obvious: if you change your shoes, sprain your ankle, get drunk, or are in a hurry, it will think you aren't you. But there is another thing that the article doesn't mention: it's fucking creepy! I don't like things that monitor me in any way during everyday life...thanks for your interest, but no, Big Brother Verizon, you may not watch over me at all times.
