The makers of the We-Vibe, a line of vibrators that can be paired with an app for remote-controlled use, have reached a $3.75 million class action settlement with users following allegations that the company was collecting data on when and how the sex toy was used.

Standard Innovations, the Canadian manufacturer of the We-Vibe, does not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement finalized Monday.

The We-Vibe product line includes a number of Bluetooth-enabled vibrators that, when linked to the "We-Connect" app, can be controlled from a smartphone. It allows a user to vary rhythms, patterns and settings — or give a partner, in the room or anywhere in the world, control of the device.

I guess you operate the app with your nose or something.

The "how" it's used seems pretty obvious and hardly a surprise, and who really cares about the "when"? Maybe it's not so much the data collection that people object to as it is the little camera in the business end.

Except that's only in the Kellyanne Conway Signature Model.

Wrong, it's in the Hillary Clinton Industrial Model X-5000 as well, except it has a wide-angle fish-eye lens.
