Moshi for iPad
  • By Aldo Panessidi


    Speculations that Apple would lose its steam with its loss of Steve Jobs at the helm are coming up to be nothing but hot air and competitor's wishes.  In a survey conducted by Alpha Wise on behalf of Morgan Stanley, Apple is poised to sell as many as 190 million iPhones in 2012. No doubt, the continued strength of the brand will also lead to higher iPad tablet sales.  As always there is a plethora of accessories including bags, sleeves & cases, docking stations, micro SD memory cards and speakers as well other accessions which will continuously fly off the shelves too.



    The 2012 Gossip Mill  Spotlighting  Apple, RIM, and Samsung Samsung, you continue to capture us with your Galaxy cell phones and Galaxy tablets product line… next on the line in the rumor mill is a branded variant of the 5.3 inch device said to be coming to the AT&T lineup early 2012.  Samsung’s “Note” made it through the rigors of the Commission and was expected to make a US debut, but again, it’s thought to be a disappointing update: a color variant of the international mode currently available. Until 2012 consumers won’t know if these U.S. versions will be unlocked devices or again tied to AT&T.  Experience the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits.  Latest technology from top brand manufacturers.  Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving


    Translation can be a tricky business – remember Babblefish? These same limitations and inaccuracies are found in some smartphone applications. Luckily, there are a fair number of educational app options now available that may come in especially handy for the international traveler or language learning aficionado. Buyers beware – read user reviews and be prepared to shell out the money for a quality app. Also, high quality earpieces & headsets are a great investment to get the best experience out of the app investment.


    There are definitely two sides to the coin of Research in Motion’s announcement at this week’s quarterly earnings press conference. The manufacturer informed the public that its next generation of BlackBerry smartphones will not make an appearance until “the latter part of calendar 2012.” Originally slated to hit the market in the first part of 2012, the set back could indicate that they are reviewing the recently jailbroken OS (currently on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and expected to be used on the next gen smartphones). This could be a smart move if done properly. Giving themselves time to work out bugs, regain its reputation for security, and smooth over the debacles of 2011 could staunch the business loss.

    When news is first released of up and coming software updates, new smartphone designs, or really mobile tech related, blogs start buzzing and consumers are on the ball. Watching to see what the manufacturers, OS companies, and carriers will do with all this… newness. Will the latest smartphone be unlocked? Will the manufacturers release cutting edge accessories with the smartphone? How will they make this technology more streamlined into everyday life?  Unlocked cell phones enable you the freedom to break free from service providers long-term locked in service plans.


    All that Glitters Eventually Fades – Galaxy Nexus GlitchesWhen the hype dies down, the downloads have been made, and the beautiful mobile device in the customer’s hands is a little less shiny, the reports of glitches and problems come out of the woodwork. So in a now familiar song and dance routine, it is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus’ turn to step onto the stage and hear the critiques.


    The first complaint on the list has to do with the multi-touch functionality of the display. Apparently some apps can cause a failure of this function. What is more disconcerting is that the issue is not resolved when those problematic apps are closed and that the loss of multi-touch functionality is seen other apps as well. The only fix at the moment is switching off the display and then turning it back on. When using in the car for satellite navigation, this particular flaw could be dangerous without a car holder to keep the device as hands free as possible.  Discover the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits. Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving.


    All that Glitters Eventually Fades – Galaxy Nexus GlitchesFortunately, the causes of the issue are looking to be addressed and mitigated in a quick manner. The transition from major OS updates on smartphones can have a lagging effect on legacy apps that may not be updated to be compatible with the newest OS, causing glitches and hiccups (like this latest ICS upgrade for the Galaxy Nexus).   Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  The latest innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


    The fact that the problem does persist when the apps are closed points to a more challenging problem on the operating system, but Galaxy Nexus is running version 4.0.2. These errors haven’t been reproduced on the Nexus S which is on the next OS version, so looks to be already fixed! If this particular set of flaws is a deal breaker, perhaps the Nexus S would be a better fit…

    Technology is such an integral part of our daily lives that it is often easy to be unaware of what is silently going on and lurking in the background of our computers – especially what have now become pocket-computers - smartphones. The intent behind writing malware code has significantly shifted from the early days of this intrusive and highly damaging virus creation. Where it once was mischievous, attention-grabbing and reeked of personal ego and glorification, we are now in an era where viruses are stealthy coded to gather information which is then sold for profit. The 21st century has seen an exponential growth in malware to fuel a multi-billion dollar black market industry that is more profitable than illegal gambling and pornography combined.   In fact many wireless carriers are tracking user's behavior and personal SMS through a  spyware product developed by a company called Carrier IQ.  Protect your privacy from carriers with unlocked cell phones... which are carrier agnostic and allow you freedom from being 'locked in' a long term service contract.


    Exponential Growth in for-profit Malware Hits Android


    Antivirus / software security companies are in a constant cat and mouse game with malicious code writers and crime rings to protect the assets and information of consumers. PC users and companies alike recognize the need for security software on endpoints.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  The latest innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection cases and skin accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    What many consumers and companies are in denial about is the fact that smartphones are another endpoint open to infection and infiltration (and let’s be honest, righteous Mac / Apple users epitomize the attitude of this mindset). Alas, greed knows no boundaries, even if you have a sleek and lovely device in a cool case. To the chagrin of both iOS and Android users, botnets and rootkits that steal data don’t necessarily slow smartphones down which makes them silent and hard to detect, allowing malware to exploit consumer information for a profit.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select premium memory and electronic accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Exponential Growth in for-profit Malware Hits Android


    So, as the Carrier IQ scandal has brought widespread attention about carrier-sourced spyware, the ever growing targeted threat to Android users has walked off of center stage. According to Lookout Mobile Security, more than $1 million was pilfered from Android smartphones in 2011 and the amount of malware written for this OS dramatically jumped from 1% to 4% this year. The security firm highlights the practice of “mobile pickpocketing” which is malicious code written to steal money by exploiting carrier billing features. Consumers do have the option of unlocked devices and allow themselves the ability to shop around for carriers that address these security gaps.  Get powered up for work, life and play easily and conveniently with their collection of desktop chargers, wall chargers and car chargers.   Get all the power and energy you need for the mobile lifestyle.


    The data was collected from 15 million handsets globally and from over one million apps in efforts to compile a 2012 Mobile Threat Predictions report. All signs point to continued increases in lost money, infected machines, and collected data in 2012.  Discover  the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits.  Latest technology from top brand manufacturers.  Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving


    Following these findings, the co-founder and CTO of Lookout Mobile Security stated, “2011 was a watershed year in terms of the types threats we saw emerging […] “Threats had greater sophistication and were deployed using more innovative and efficient distribution methods. In 2012, we expect to see the mobile malware business turn profitable. What took 15 years on the PC platform has only taken the mobile ecosystem two years.”


    So – consumers beware, be educated, be on guard. Be empowered.

  • Windows OS hacked via SMS and Messaging
    Posted on December 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By Megan Fleet


    Have you ever wondered what kind of advances could be made in the world if hackers and malicious code writers put their brains to something not quite so… well, malicious?


    Windows OS hacked via SMS and MessagingAlas, that is a an unlikely scenario considering hackers consider breaking into an OS and accessing it at the root level as something of an art form and a sport. Like IT Tai Chi.  Accessories are designed to protect, personalize and enhance your mobile devices.  Discover innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands


     


    The victim of the most recent OS hack? Microsoft’s Windows Phone. It looks like the attack is carried out through an SMS or a chat message from either Facebook or Windows Live Messenger and is used to disable the phone’s Messaging hub.  Get powered up for work, life and play easily and conveniently with their collection of desktop chargers, wall chargers and car chargers.   Get all the power and energy you need for the mobile lifestyle.


     


    Some affected users will be notified of the infiltration by the Live tile pinned to the homescreen from the contact you received the message from. Then the phone will freeze. These victims have an easier fix – restart the device and remove the tile prior to it completely loading. A hard reset is still required, but allows a quick backup of photos etc. To prevent a possible infection of your Windows OS at the PC level, use of removable memory is a good precaution.  Discover the widest online selection of Bluetooth Headsets and BlueTooth Car Kits.  Latest technology from top brand manufacturers.  Hands free functionality is designed for the interactive 'on the go' lifestyle  and allows safe driving.


    Windows OS hacked via SMS and Messaging


    Unfortunately, in other cases, post attack, the Messaging hub cannot start and will require a hard reset on the device. As with any device consumers, need to consider removable memory cards as a seriously good idea in the event the handset and OS are compromised.


    To rule out device specific flaws, Windows Phone 7.5 (for both build 7720 and 7740) were tested. Those results point to an issue at the OS level and not with the devices.


    In all, this malware appears relatively innocuous as it doesn’t appear to compromise the security of the device and Microsoft is already working on a fix.
