Redondo Beach, Calif. startup Cujo presumably named its eponymous home security device after the crazed guard dog to demonstrate the lengths it will go stop hackers, phishers, snoopers, identity thefts, and other evildoers from inflicting harm. Yet, we’d hate to have to take a baseball bat to the cute little gizmo, which has adorable eye features that indicate various modes of operation.
