Moshi for iPad

    During the Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung announced that the company was working on merging its Bada mobile operating system with the open-source Tizen operating system.


    Android Apps Backed by Tizen OS Run on Samsung


    Samsung is currently the second-largest cellphone maker in the world, with devices powered by four major operating systems. By focusing on its own operating system, Samsung has more control over its devices and a greater opportunity to differentiate its products from its competitors. By merging the two operating systems, Samsung is hoping that existing Bada developers will transition to Tizen.

    While still in development, the Tizen operating system is open-source and backed by Intel and the Linux Foundation. When the Bada integration is complete, Tizen will support programs written with Samsung’s Bada SDK, including both new and previously published apps.


    Tizen, according to reports, features a program called Application Compatibility Layer (ACL), which enables the device to run applications built using different code. ACL is similar to RIM’s Android player for its BlackBerry PlayBook.


    A new video has been released that demonstrates the Samsung/Intel-backed Tizen OS running Android apps.



    While Samsung has carved a reputation as a leader in mobile technology and devices , it is also gained notoriety for being pretty slow with bringing cell phone accessories and tablet accessories to the market. Industry leading manufacturers continue to provide the greatest selection of top brand accessories from Bags and Sleeves, Batteries, Bluetooth Headsets and Bluetooth Car Kits, Car Holders, Cases and Skins, Data Cables, Earbuds and Headsets, Keyboard and Protectors, Memory Cards, Screen Protectors, Speakers and Docks as well as Stylus and Pens


    Open Mobile, the company behind ACL, claims Android apps will be able to run on a Tizen-powered device with 100% compatibility, and stated that ACL features the same level of responsiveness users would expect on a device that runs on Android OS. The company would also like to make sure that the ACL will be integrated into smartphones and tablets by vendors and not end users.


    As usual, there probably will be a few bugs to be worked out in the field, but all indicators are that Tizen is a well-designed and truly open source alternative to Google's Android.

    The buzz is everywhere about Fort Lee, the town in New Jersey that banned texting while walking. The Associated Press originally reported the story as a law that would impose a $54 fine on someone who was texting while walking.

    (REAL sign posted in Fort Lee, New Jersey)


    This follows an incident in China that made international headlines... when a woman texting on her phone while walking fell through an open manhole and had to be rescued.  It turned out both the woman and cell phone were unscathed.

    As the Atlantic Wire corrected the story, “the official fineable offense is in Fort Lee, N.J., is jaywalking, which can include but is not limited to texting while walking.  While it is true that you can get a ticket while you are texting and walking, you can only get fined if the texting turns you into a distracted jaywalker who creates a dangerous traffic situation.”

    The town passed the law because more than 20 pedestrians have been hit while jaywalking in the town this past year, including three people who were killed. “It’s a big distraction. Pedestrians aren’t watching where they are going and they are not aware,” said Thomas Ripoli, chief of the Fort Lee Police Department. Police handed out pamphlets during a short grace period in March before they began aggressively going after “dangerous walkers.” The New Jersey Record reported that more than 117 tickets have been issued since then.

    In a study on walking and texting conducted by two professors at Stony Brook University in New York, they found texters are 60 percent more likely to veer off their paths than non-texters. “We want to raise awareness that a real disruption occurs because of texting,” Eric Lamberg, co-author of the study, told Long Island Business News. “Texting disrupts your ability much more than does talking.”


    New York State Senator Carl Kruger wants a similar ban to in New York. It would also prohibit talking on the phone or using iPods while walking or running.

    Digitimes also claims that Apple supplier Pegatron Technology has already landed orders for both the latest handset and the new iPad. We believe the report that the iPhone is coming. Since Apple just launched its new iPad three months ago, the iPad report may turn out to be too much to hope for. The website also claims that Foxconn will have the honors of putting together the rumored 7-inch tablet that we may be seeing as early as August.

    An independent evaluation of the Apple Mac OS X platform concluded that the software is “highly vulnerable to malware”, so says the security firm Kaspersky Lab.


    Apple Malware OS XKaspersky Logo


    In the words of Kaspersky Lab CTO Nikolai Grebennikov, “Our experience tells us that in the near future, perhaps in a year or so, we will see the first malware targeting iOS. As Mac OS X market share continues to increase; we expect cyber-criminals to continue to develop new types of malware and attack methods. In order to meet these new threats, Kaspersky Lab has been conducting an in-depth analysis of Mac OS X vulnerabilities and new forms of malware.”

    The company has tried to get this through to Apple before. Kaspersky Lab co-founder and chief executive Eugene Kaspersky has stated that Apple is a decade behind Microsoft in terms of computer security.


    Grebennikov went on to say, “Our first investigations show Apple doesn’t pay enough attention to security. For example, Oracle closed a vulnerability in Java, which was a target for a major botnet several months ago. Apple blocked Oracle from updating Java on Mac OS, and they perform all the updates themselves. They only released the patch a few weeks ago – two or three months after the Oracle patch. That’s far too long.” Grebennikov’s position on the existence of the botnet is that it shows that “Apple’s security model isn’t perfect.”

    Kaspersky Lab analysts have yet to identify any iOS-specific malware, but the company predicts that iPads and iPhones eventually will be infected.


    While the security analysis Kaspersky Lab has been conducting is independent of Apple, the two do have a working relationship. Said Grebennikov, Apple “is open to collaborating with us regarding new Mac OS X vulnerabilities and malware that we identify during our analysis.”

    There’s a rumor- spotlight shining on a different area of technology redesign right now – materials used for device cases. Reports have it that Apple has a new “Liquidmetal” alloy for its next iPhone 5, and Samsung is working on a ceramic main body for its upcoming Samsung Galaxy III S smartphone.

    Apple is reported to be replacing the current iPhone’s glass case with a Liquidmetal alloy that will make the case both thinner and lighter. Liquidmetal is also supposed to significantly improve the case’s durability.


    It seems Apple has had this change in the works for awhile. Back in 2010, Apple acquired the rights to the “amorphous metal alloys” that Liquidmetal Technologies had developed. Not long after that, Apple was looking for engineers to work with the material.

    We should have confirmation on whether an iPhone case made out of Liquidmetal will be in our hands soon. According to South Korea’s ETNews, one of their sources reported that the next iPhone should be unveiled in June at the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.


    The South Korean news site also announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone will feature a ceramic main body, giving that phone a lighter weight and more comfortable grip. The ceramic material is manufactured with a new method for applying heat to a non-metallic inorganic substance. The Galaxy S III is scheduled to be unveiled in London on May 3rd.

    Today Apple can seemingly do no wrong. But if you think back a couple of years, you will likely recall the fuss made around the iPhone4 and the unheard of design flaw that had jaws flapping. Honestly, it had been ages since the incident had crossed my mind. And unfortunately for Apple, Antennagate has reared its ugly head once again.


    iPhone 4 Can`t Touch This - Design Flaw - Dropped Calls


    The silver lining for the tech darling is that this time the reminder comes in the form of a bookend on the class-action lawsuit that had been levied against Apple after the 2010 iPhone 4 release that caused some serious problems for customers trying to actually use their iPhones to speak with others. Some users noticed that when the strip along the side of the handset was covered it would result in a loss of signal and eventually a dropped call.

    To stem the tide of a disgruntled public, Apple offered free Bumper cases for iPhone4 buyers. Alas, they were only available through September 30, 2010 which did not appease those who had waited in line and paid a premium for the long-awaited iPhone4 – hence, the multiple lawsuits filed against Apple.


    So those iPhone customers who felt cheated because of the time limit on free bumper cases will be pleased to hear that the class-action lawsuit against Apple translates into either a free Bumper case or $15 cash to iPhone4 customers in the United States. Personally, my iPhone4 is already enshrined in the protective case of my choosing. But, the $15 cash is a great incentive to buy the new running accessories or headset I’ve had my eye on.


    To claim the reward of your choice, visit www.iPhone4Settlement.com (it is not yet up and running). The website will provide information on how customers can receive their free case or get the cash in hand. In case you forget, Apple will be required to send reminder emails to iPhone4 users prior to April 30th.


    Thankfully this design flaw was addressed with the iPhone 4S and the tech company continues to bring its signature innovation and style to consumers with products like the iPad that have made it the success story to date and an industry leader, not a follower.

    Apple iPad 3 Generation Review


    Can you hear the Apple machine cranking? The infamous company has yet to reach its zenith for this century according to Gartner reports and financial projections of the past few weeks and its adoring public is not likely to disappoint or be disappointed.


    Tablet Sales vs PC SalesTablets will see an explosion in sales over the next four years, selling 60% as many units as PCs by 2015 – and Apple iPad will still have almost half the market by then, says the research group Gartner in a bullish forecast.

    The following video provides a iPad 3 - Rumor Roundup



    Selling power of the iPadAfter delivering a surprisingly popular (and by last quarter’s earnings reports, buyable) iPhone 4S, we are more prepared than ever to see the company’s latest iPad. The iPad 3 has had rumors swirling about it for months now. Considering the slate is to be the third in a line of tablet royalty, it is no wonder that the speculation and press around the device could easily fit into the format of US Weekly. And would probably be interesting than reading about the

    So when we caught wind that images of the device had been published by the Chinese language Apple Daily before the official announcement, inquiring minds needed to know just how accurate those images were considering the limited visuals that had been previously leaked. We are also keeping an ear to the ground for any news on Apple iPad3 accessories


    Happily, previous reports seem in line with what was seen in the Apple Daily. The case will be familiar to iPad2 users, but has the twist: a gradual taper leading from the back to the edges. This will likely translate into new accessories needed for the new slate, but that remains to be seen.


    From the spec perspective, the Apple Daily reconfirms that the iPad3 will have a 9.7-inch Retina Display and an 8-megapixel camera. With a quad-core Apple A6 processor and embedded 4G LTE connectivity under the hood, customers will not be disappointed. Apple is expected to debut the iPad3 at a press conference early March where we will hopefully hear more of plans to pair exclusively with a telecommunications carrier or if the device will be made available unlocked.

  • Apple Unseats Google as Global Leader
    Posted on February 21, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    Apple Global Leader


    Brand reputation can be hard to quantify.   The way consumers feel and the degree of trust they assign a company and its brand are tied up into a lot of intangibles.  However, Harris Interactive, a marketing research firm has developed a Reputation Quotient to measure brand reputation.   Comprised of six dimensions of reputation, this year’s new front runner, Apple was top-ranked in four: products and services, financial performance, workplace environment, and vision and leadership. The California based company was outscored by Whole Foods in the social responsibility category and by Amazon in the emotional appeal dimension of reputation.


    This year marks the firm’s 13th annual Reputation Quotient survey and Apple snagged a score of 85.62, the highest score recorded since the survey began.   Furthermore, in other  Google vs Apple  episodes,  Apple has edged out Google from its top spot in 2011’s poll. Another cloud-service provider, Amazon joined the ranks of the top 5 companies and the list was rounded out by Coca-Cola and Kraft Foods.

    According to Robert Fronk, the executive vice president of Harris Interactive, the rise of these kinds of companies to the top ranks is not unexpected. “We are seeing the emergence of a group of companies that garner reputation equity by being positively associated with multiple industries […] companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon.com combine innovation and leadership across multiple business areas, giving them true competitive advantage.”

    Between the iconic mobile tech devices (the iPad, iPhone, iPod, iTouch etc), the must-have accessories for those devices (docking stations, headphones and the like), and cloud services that Apple is going to bring to our homes with an iTV Apple fits Fronk’s model very well. Google will deliver comparable innovation and products, but may be hurting its brand reputation by not having the total control over device creation by its myriad of manufacturers as Apple does. Their core approaches to business, development and brand management vary – but then again, so does the name of which company reigns supreme.

    Cisco Network Forecast


    Riddle me this Batman: what exactly is an exabyte? Technically it is “a unit of information or computer storage equal to 1quintillion bytes.” Wrapping your head around this large of a number is like trying to fathom the national debt of the United States and all of its ramifications.


    Cisco Exabytes per MonthSo when we saw Cisco’s Visual Networking Forecast that shows global mobile data traffic projection for the next five years, the numbers were similarly difficult to swallow: 10.8 exabytes per month. To put it in perspective, this is an 18-fold increase from today’s data consumption. And with 71% of this massive amount of data will be consumed by cloud traffic and the approximate 10 billion mobile Internet-connected devices projected to be in use in 2016.


    Cisco Network Forecast


    With the world population expected to be 7.3 billion, these numbers point to a trend of consumers toting around more than one device. They will be streaming video, data, and music at faster speeds on their tablets, smartphones, iPod, MacBooks and laptops televisions thanks to quickly adopted technology from LTE networks to the actual devices. More specifically, it is the jump in smartphone adoption that is the driving force in these huge data growth projections as this will account for 8 billion of the 10 billion devices expected to be in use.

    This staggering number of devices and leaps in technology will likely have a domino effect where consumers will require smarter accessories to integrate their devices into daily life without becoming cumbersome. And, with this kind of huge adoption of technology and cloud services, the question of what role the telecommunication giants will have comes into play. Even now we are seeing a shift towards internet-based services and unlocked cell phones that provide consumers with other choices beyond the traditional carriers.


    Wherever the trends and technology go, we will be sure to keep you apprised as they change and shape a different future.
