Bulk IP-Address / Reverse DNS Lookup Tool

I’ve created this simple little Google Sheet for conducting reverse DNS / IP address lookup via Google Sheets.

I primarily use this tool for auditing the top IP addresses connecting to my site. If you use this API for your own products, please include your website/contact in the URL.

The sheet works off of an API hosted by me so if you have any requests or if you just enjoy using the free tool, please leave me a comment below.

Internet access is available in North America, South America, Australia, and Pacific Islands. Voice & SMS to other networks is available in USA, Canada, and Mexico. We will be adding more countries to this list in the future.
Yes! Your Volk One has a phone number, and can make and receive calls and SMS to old, legacy phones. Even landlines!
We currently support porting US telephone numbers. To port numbers in UK, Australia, New Zealand, or Canada, please email us at [email protected].
Volk Fi network doesn’t require SIM cards, but you may use one on supported carriers
Volk Fi counts data usage and bytes shared via WiFi. Every user gets the amount they share, unlimited. If a Volk user consumes more data than they share in a month, there is a 5GB data cap. After that, the user can pay the super cheap price of $1/GB for additional data.
Volk One has new, long-range radio hardware. This means devices can be very far apart, and the network needs many fewer devices for great coverage.

 

Volk One Pre-Order Terms and Conditions

 

FryEye – Eye Condition

According to Zenni Optical:

FryEye happens when we’re exposed to too much blue light from digital screens and artificial light, as well as sunlight and UV rays.

Order Glasses from Zenni Optical
Although FryEye, isn’t a medical condition or term, there is a blue-light related condition known as computer vision syndrome. Despite this condition existing, current academic consensus suggests there are no known health effects of day-to-day exposure to blue light and it is not regarded as a cause of eye disease. Opticians in the United Kingdom have been fined for misleading customers about their blue-light filtering lenses.

Although research on the physical effects of blue-light on the eyes and body is limited, I find myself sensitive to blue light. I typically opt for blue-light filtering lenses on top of my use of blue-light limiting apps such as f.lux.

This gives us a small tidbit of info, the network currently resolves to host.starlinkisp.net. We can expect this to be the future domain for StarLink. For now, it 301 redirects to the SpaceX homepage, but I’m monitoring the domain for updates.

From this info, we can gather Starlink is likely using a Juniper powered router for this single IP. Unfortunately, connections to port 25 and 22 timeout so no further information could be gathered from that end.

The remaining hosts replied in the following way:

Fitbit Gemini Release Date, Features, and Specs

On February 4th, Fitbit received FCC approval for a new Bluetooth enabled device labeled “Gemini” according to the documents. The device has been assigned a model number FB415 and given the label “SMART WATCH” in the testing documents.

FCC ID: XRAFB415 , IC: 8542A-FB415

Serial Numbers: EVT-FA2-342 , EVT-FA2-338, EVT-FA7197

Other certification numbers were revealed in the e-labeling documents (below):

  • CMIIT ID: 2019DJ0335
  • KCC: R-C-XRA-FB415
  • IFETEL: RCPFIFB19-0053
  • NCC: CCAI19LP0170T1
  • BIS.gov.in: R-41089931
  • BOCRA: BOCRA/TA/2019/4297

Unfortunately, these licensing items don’t provide much additional information as the ID numbers are still not publically registered. Additionally, no Bluetooth registration exists for the device yet.

We can expect a release soon, as Fitbit typically has less than a few months between their FCC filing and the release of their product, April or May 2019 would be a reasonable timeframe.

From the image of the e-label, we can guess this watch may have a screen width of 300 pixels, the hight is so far unknown.
