Why Cheats will no longer get it easy

Beware, you cheats between the sheets.

A new high-tech mattress detects hanky-panky and informs the owner via a mobile app.

Reacting to a report that Spain has a high rate of infidelity, a Spanish mattress firm didn’t take the news lying down, the Local in Spain reports.

Durmet developed the Smarttress and its “Lover Detection System.” Twenty-four ultrasonic sensors measure “suspicious movement” in the bed, transmitting data of the tryst, including a 3D mattress model to show where most of the exertion is taking place.

Users have discovered hundreds of messages locked in a hidden inbox within Facebook’s messaging system.

The inbox, accessible on the web or Facebook Messenger apps for smartphones and tablets, is part of Facebook’s filtering system, designed to catch spam and other unwanted messages.

However, users, including myself and others within the Guardian, have discovered their “filtered” inbox full of legitimate messages that never made it to the main inbox or Messenger app.

The simplest way to access the inbox is to navigate to facebook.com/messages/other on the desktop.

Within the Messenger app the hidden inbox is buried under four menus. To get to it tap Settings, then People, then Message Requests and tap on the “See filtered requests” link.

The filtered messages include anything attempting to send you messages that you have manually filtered out as unwanted, as well as messages from people who are not connected with you on Facebook. I discovered some tens of messages dating back as far as 2008.
