  • Google Android OS: Growing Goliath
    Posted on December 15, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Google Android OS: Growing GoliathDo you know what unbiased opinion is? No. Not teen spirit. It's the results from the report released by VisionMobile on Monday comparing the top eight open source platforms on the market. Not to be found under the shade of Google’s umbrella, this report sheds light on the marketing spin on Google’s Android OS.  .   Accessories are designed to protect, personalize and enhance your mobile devices.  Discover the innovative protection solutions that 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 nameprotection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression


    Any newbie to the mobilization market knows that Apple’s iOS is a closed platform. It has also done remarkably well in winning over the creative geniuses in the sub-markets for apps and accessory creation. Google’s comeback to this success is that it is truly the best friend of app developers because of its “open source” concept.  Let  trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Discover an extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins that deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


     


    True, the leviathan’s OS is more widely available to mobile device manufacturers and more easily distributed globally thanks to unlocked phones, but is it truly all that “open”? VisionMobile votes NO!   In fact, the new report ranks it the most closed of the open source platforms out of the eight reviewed projects. As can be seen in the Open Governance Index (please see below), an in-depth review of the relative openness for Android, Wt, Symbian, MeeGo, Mozilla, WebKit, Linux, and Eclipse yields results that defy the lip service of the Google executive team.   Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select electronic accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Google Android OS: Growing Goliath


    By excluding licensing models and instead employing governance as a core metric, VisionMobile determined that Eclipse is actually the most open of these projects, pulling in a score of 84%. In contrast, Google’s Android came in dead last with an index score of 23%. With all the benefits of open source touted by Google, how does this add up?  XMI Speakers have built a reputation for delivering  uncompromised sound quality and a revolutionary design accentuating  today's interactive lifestyle.   Our earpieces and headsets combine sophisticated style and precision engineering that deliver brilliant sound for your total listening pleasure.


    Follow the money. The firm concluded that the success of Android OS is in major part thanks to the significant financial backing of Google and its primary source of revenue. “Google has made Android available at ‘less than zero’ cost, since Google’s core business is not software or search, but driving eyeballs to ads,” the report states. “As is now well understood, Google’s strategy has been to subsidize Android such that it can deliver cheap handsets and low-cost wireless Internet access in order to drive more eyeballs to Google’s ad inventory. Get powered up for work, life and play easily and conveniently with desktop chargers, wall chargers and car chargers - all the power and energy you need for the mobile lifestyle.


    Google Android OS: Growing Goliath


    This is no garage grown start up. Instead, Google’s global presence, billions of marketing dollars (grace a carriers and vendors) and a drive to gobble up Apple’s grassroots momentum are behind Android’s success. Not its open source licensing philosophy. Nor its iconic, proprietary devices and end-user inspired mobile accessories.


    Perhaps Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop, stated it best this past June: “Apple created the conditions necessary for Android.“

    Apple Dominant Leading Force in Apps Download


    Have you ever wondered if the - now commonplace nomenclature - of « app » was a derivative of « Apple »?  With the revolutionary concept of iTunes and its accompanying iPods, iPads, and iPhones, App and Apple have certainly been synonymous.  As the popularity of Apple products, devices, accessories, and everything in between continues to grow globally, it is no surprise that the company has announced a few landmark numbers to its adoring public.


    Apparently Apple has been ramping up its AppStore, in a mere six times there has been an  increase of apps... from 425,000 in July to 500,000 this week.   More impressive is the number of those apps that have been downloaded. Since 2008, iOS users have downloaded over 18 billion apps. The 15 billion marker was hit in July, which indicates that the Apple momentum just keeps building up steam. At this rate, they are tracking to surpass 1 billion apps downloaded per month.   The popularity of accessories has been soaring likewise; discover the latest innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands.


    In the words of the company itself, “Apple revolutionized the app industry with the App Store, which now has more than 500,000 apps and where customers have downloaded more than 18 billion apps and continue to download more than 1 billion apps per month.”


    Apple Dominant Leading Force in Apps Download


    Although less inspired , but not to be left behind, the Google Android Market now has 319,000 apps. This month the conglomerate also announced that they passed the 10 billion app download milestone. The expectation is that this competing purveyor of multi-tasking inducing apps will also average a rate of one billion app downloads per month.  This does have the potential to grow more exponentially than Apple because of Google Android’s greater distribution to smartphone device manufacturers and in turn being open to more markets with a greater choice of unlocked phones.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover the select accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich


    But as in any good industry competition, the consumers on both sides of the aisle will win with a greater choice of apps, more innovation, and feed our insatiable need for technology.

  • Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!
    Posted on December 8, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    The Big Brother-esque actions of major carriers like ATT&T and Sprint has many consumers in an uproar and clamoring for vindication.  There is major concern of the possibility of Carrier IQ installed a tracking device that monitors texting keystrokes and cell phone usage on mobile devices.  The vendor is known for its root kit software which may be reporting users’ keystrokes, messages, and browsing history. This is an amazing case touting the many benefits of unlocked smartphones where you as the consumer can choose a carrier that does not work with Carrier IQ.


    Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!


    According to aforementioned vendor, the carriers use the software to “collect enough information to understand the customer experience with devices on our network and how to devise solutions to use and connection problems.”  That is fine and dandy, but the capability of the software to stealthily share sensitive information is alarming and Carrier IQ gives the carriers access to most or all of it.   Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover how premium electronic accessoriesspecifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    There is, however, a new app from BitDefender that will put Android phone users at ease to protect against the Carrier IQ intrusion. This neat app detects the Carrier IQ software on the Google OS phones within seconds. Google Market has made the Carrier IQ Finder app free. Upon installation, tap the icon and voila! You’re an informed consumer with the knowledge of whether the software is on your handset or not. This action is still advisable to consumers shopping for an unlocked phone that will be carrier-neutral.


    Where to go from that point? Well. There are limited options. You can install the removal tool developed by Eckhart (the security researcher who discovered the Carrier IQ software on his handset) which can be found at this Android Market link: Logging TestApp Pro Key. Or, you can install a third-part ROM.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand accessories.


    Carrier IQ Is Spying On You!Because both of these actions require rooting the device (which makes sense in eradicating rootkit software), it is advisable to casual smartphone users to seek out a smartphone savvy friend or professional. The last recourse option is to wait for the carriers to issue software updates to uninstall the tool. This could come quickly as Carrier IQ related lawsuits are building up steam and the carriers will want to mitigate damages.   Let our trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - discover how cool you can be.


    The public is currently in the dark on how this technology and collected information has been used by the carriers in question. No doubt there will be more news and details made available in the coming legal circus, but until there is a true fix in removing the root kit on your smartphone, user beware of what information you’re making available and considering sidestepping the carrier-smartphone manufacturer exclusivity fray the next time around with an unlocked phone.

    School districts received a number of grants to purchase tablets to increase interactive learning and pique student interest and raise productivity.  Faced with the decision of choosing a tablet, educational institutions are investigating and evaluating the benefits and shortcomings of various mobile tablets and tablet accessories available on the market.


     


    Some of the many benefits are: physical size, applications, streamlined user-friendly features. However, the vast majority of these tablets don't come equipped with CD/ DVD ROMs or USB ports that are traditional means of backup for the typical user.  It appears that Acer had these limitations in mind when it quietly developed and introduced the Acer A500. This is a consumer centric honeycomb product that is not only affordable but also includes full-size USB ports and is cost effective.  Discover the latest innovative protective tablet solutions and premium electronic tablet accessories.


    Acer Launches Affordable USB Equiped Tablet


    The new Acer A500 model boasts a 10.1 inch screen with a full gigabyte of RAM and an option of 16 or 32 gigabyte internal storage. The 2 megapixel front facing camera and an 3260mAh battery  holding an 8 hour charge; coupled with a USB port and microSD card option for 32GB external storage for the pragmatic user. Other tablet showcases more impressive technical specs, but it all comes down to the customer needs.


    This is indeed a pragmatic option (not necessarily aesthetically appealing one at 12mm thick), the specs of this Acer tablet make it a contender as an entry-level purchase. For those customers drawn to a tablet’s « look » and flashier features, they may want to consider the Blackberry PlayBook or Apple iPad or the Samsung Galaxy offerings.


    Acer Launches Affordable USB Equiped Tablet


    For the Android fans out there, this tablet is slated to launch with Honeycomb but will be upgraded to Android 4.0 soon after its release. The roadmap as of now is unclear, but would make a lovely and practical addition to any consumer’s Android family of products.

    Cell Phone Pandemic – Texting / Talking while drivingWe’ve all heard the anecdotes and actually, you probably personally know someone who has been affected. It’s not AIDS; it’s not breast cancer; it’s not drunk driving. It’s texting and talking while driving. And in a recent Canadian survey (conducted by the insurance company Kanetix), 18% of the survey group admits to these cell activities while behind the wheel. The second question and perhaps more pertinent would be: how many Canadian drivers use a hands-free headset or other safety accessories? Bluetooth headsets and Bluetooth car kits accessories are proven to keep eyes on the road.


    For smart phone users it is even more potentially treacherous when factoring in “playing games, checking social media, reading emails” and a plethora of other activities typical smart phone users engage in while driving.  In fact, in a study recently released by ComSource a full 70% of cellular consumers use their phones to text.  Discover the latest innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands


    So what’s the tangible toll of these actions? According to Allstate Canada a full 80% of collisions are caused by distracted driving - in fact the province of Alberta gets first prize for distracted drivers.  If that doesn’t drive the point home, the findings of a study conducted by the Transportation Research Laboratory in Britain will.  Alcohol intoxication impaired driving reaction time by 12%.  Marijuana? Reaction time suffered even more: 21%.  Sober texting hampered reaction time by 35%. Hazarding a guess that the roads would be exponentially safer with the sale of hands-free accessories for every unlocked cell phone sold.


    Given the number of cities, provinces and US states that are taking legislative actions to improve public safety we may soon be legally mandated to use Bluetooth car kit accessories. Cell phone free zones are seen in school zones, texting is banned in a full 35 states in the US and awareness of the dangers is ever growing. Before your next trip in the car, you may want to peruse the accessories that will keep you and your loved ones safer.

    End of 2011 brings a mixed bag of news – Stealthware to Empowered Canadian ConsumersBefore October, the casual smart phone consumer was likely blissfully unaware of the existence of a company by the name of Carrier IQ. Thanks to researcher Trevor Eckhart, it has come to light that the stealth software company is recording keystrokes, SMS messages and other information and possibly reporting the data back to their servers. Carrier IQ’s response? Issuing a cease and desist letter to the whistleblower, Eckhart, and releasing a media alert dismissing the accusations saying that they are “not recording keystrokes or providing tracking tools.” Enjoy the freedom brought about by unlocked phones... which allow you to choose not only the service provider but the plan that best meets your lifestyle needs.
    The potential privacy contagion is rumored to be limited to certain smart phone OS’s, so be an informed consumer and review all your mobile device options. The best part is the great offerings and releases of new phones and from Apple, Blackberry, Samsung, Motorola, HTC and everything in between during the holiday season! This Holiday Season - protective accessories solutions make excellent and greatly appreciated stocking stuffers.


    End of 2011 brings a mixed bag of news – Stealthware to Empowered Canadian Consumers
    And to end on a high note, legislation may be in the works to bring greater data equality and accessibility to all Canadians. Christian Paradis, the Minister of Industry, recently made significant remarks at the International Institute of Communications Canada Conference in Ottawa that rolled out “an update on measure taken to support the digital economy in Canada […] Canadians should receive the same services wherever they live.” The implications of this could be huge, ending regional monopolies by carrier based on tower service areas. Putting the power of choice back into the hands of the consumer who could better take advantage of unlocked mobile devices creates a competitive environment to drive technology and affordable, customizable plans. Music to all Canadians’ ears!

    As mobile devices become increasingly integrated into our lives as an extension of the personal computer; the same threats posed to our PCs creep into our day to day mobile phone and tablet usage.


    Android OS – Application soft spots lead to potential privacy breaches


    According to a research paper released by the North Carolina State University, certain Android vendors including Motorola, Samsung, and HTC) are not following Android’s best practices for pre-installed apps.  An undesired side effect of this negligence is that those applications access to send SMS messages, wipe a phone’s data, or even read your address books. In effect, they are able to do all of the aforementioned tasks without your knowing. This is stark contrast to Apple iPhone and iPad tablet propietary applications / OS practices which may be on your list of considerations.


    As a Google prodigy, these Android vulnerabilities are not quite so present on Google phones such as the Nexus One and Nexus S. There are unfortunately some symptoms of an underlying weakness in the Android platform. This shortcoming points to an inherent flaw in the OS for its permissions-based exploits. Luckily today’s marketplace offers a variety of smart phone OS and device options.  Discover the innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands.


    Android OS – Application soft spots lead to potential privacy breaches


    Google and Motorola (now a subsidiary of the internet giant) have both acknowledged these issues. Interesting enough, HTC and Samsung have presented considerate difficulties for researchers in terms of reporting these issues. An interesting delineation between manufacturers, it may be in a consumer’s best interest to review unlocked phones for security purposes before locking into a contract with an unsecure smart phone.


    The silver lining is that it is the likelihood of these soft spots being exploited is low. This is due to the necessity of side-loading an app on the device to interface with the permissions of the pre-installed applications’ weaknesses. But buyer bewares – the potential for serious privacy infringement is there. Be an informed and engaged consumer and take precautions when downloading applications from the Android Marketplace.  Ensure that you are downloading apps from trustworthy sellers and take a few moments to read over reviews, protection, smart phone and tablet accessories and additional smart phone options at online retailers such as puremobile.com.
