    Apple - HTC Saga Continues....


    By Aldo Panessidi


    Can’t we all just get along?


    In a round robin style of legal actions, the US International Trade Commission has agreed to revisit a decision made by a judge earlier this year. That particular ruling was not to the liking of Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, HTC, as the decision cleared Apple of four patent violation accusations.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with the latest stylish top brand bag, sleeves and case accessories.


    Despite HTC’s tag line of “Quietly Brilliant,” the company has not been quiet in this technological battle of wills with Apple. And, as the first smartphone to market using Android OS technology, this corporate judicial sparring has likely been in the works for a number of years. The October ruling by an ITC judge determined that the HTC owned patents related to power management and phone dialing were not violated by Apple’s iPhone 4s, iPad 3G or iPod Touch.


    In true legal relay fashion, the ITC decision came right before a ruling on a case brought against HTC by Apple which will determine if the smartphones manufactured by HTC are the culprits in patent infringement. As the HTC claim included Apple’s tablet technology, this writer does wonder if the HTC Flyer tablet will come under scrutiny as well. Taking their claim to where it matters most, Apple is pursued an injunction which will bar the rival HTC from distributing and selling products that include patent-violating technology in the US beginning in April 2012.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover our the accessories, stylus & pens, SD micro cards, data cables, desktop chargers, car kits and special glider gloves specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Can’t we all just get along? For now it looks as though Apple has won the battle. However, based on the volley of legal actions between the two companies in recent months, there will likely be more news to follow. Who knows, with the forces of Apple, HTC (and Google Android perhaps?), these lawsuits could easily start to drift into patent questions around docking stations, hands free technologies, and other consumer inspired accessories. Stay posted for the next move in the game.

    Blackberry App UpdateLooks like BlackBerry is angling to infuse some more « Crack » back into the once dominant brand with some BlackBerry app updates this week. What do those updates look like? Twitter for BlackBerry will be available for an update to version 2.1.0.28 that includes improved support for the BlackBerry Curve and Pearl users out there. According to company officials, “BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry Pearl users are now able to view a users profile page from an @Mention.” Discover the latest unlocked Blackberry cell phones including the Blackberry Bold 9900


    If you’re a BlackBerry user that hasn’t updated in a while, a version upgrade earlier this month includes support for multiple accounts and also for BBM sharing.  Both of these should be searchable in App World for manual updates too.

Looks to be a major update which will augment the experience with new features that are supposed to also coincide with BBM v6.1 release.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover our the accessories, stylus & pens, SD micro cards, data cables, desktop chargers, car kits and special glider gloves specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.

At a more technical level, end users may also see improvements from the server side when looking for news releases and other popular content (refuse to include the Kardashian updates as « news »).

    Posted on December 21, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By: John Castell

    Carrier IQ Speaks Out Regarding Stealth Software Rumors


    After the constant buzz around Carrier IQ and its prolific data collecting software... which is purported to be a service that collects information from the customer handsets of certain mobile carriers, the company has finally decided to pipe up amid what is shaping up to be an escalating scandal.  They have released a detailed report regarding its stealth app software in an effort to protect themselves by outlining what they do and why they do it.  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


    According to Carrier IQ, the Android log files that sparked this controversy did contain unencrypted personal information. However, following that admission the company stated that those were cases that should not normally occur. So why did it? Some mobile device handsets come preloaded with Carrier IQ which causes messages to debug from the pre-production manufacturer software. In other words, the transmittance of unencrypted data is the by-product of faulty software – not an intentional action of data stealing and reporting to carriers. For current Android customers, there are apps to seek out the cloaked software. For those prospective customers, who want security against this type of big brother monitoring need to explore the freedom offered by  unlocked cell phones - break free from service provider long term contracts; choose your preferred service providers and negotiate  a service packages that meet your individual lifestyle needs.


    Carrier IQ Speaks Out Regarding Stealth Software Rumors


    As it stands, the company has recognized that there is a flaw in the software that needs to be addressed. At the moment, Carrier IQ is collaborating with mobile device manufacturers and carriers alike to roll out a comprehensive fix that will protect customer and data privacy. End goal is to cease the debugging messages entirely as soon as a smartphone has been activated.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our 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.


    Beyond unencrypted log files, greater cause for concern was the accusation of Carrier IQ recording SMS transactions. They are deflecting blame to one up to another bug in the app that results in recorded messages under vague “unique circumstances.” The circumstances that were mentioned included receipt of an SMS while in the middle of a call or data session. Not quite an uncommon or unique occurrence. Thankfully the SMS messages relayed back to Carrier IQ are encrypted for a higher degree of data privacy.   Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover the select accessories such, stylus & pens, batteries, microSD memory cards, chargers, glider gloves and other premium electronic gadgets specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    While an exact timeline hasn’t been announced, there was a promise made that the issue would be handled and fixed quickly.


    And, for those most affected, the 19 page report is available to the public in PDF form. Please see previous blog entries for additional details regarding unlocked cell phones and for a partial list of carriers involved.

  • Nokia / Microsoft Rumors Reemerge
    Posted on December 16, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    By: Aldo Panessidi


    Nokia / Microsoft Rumors ReemergeTechnology companies are increasingly traded, acquired, and merged within industry similar to commodities with enormous sums of money involved.  Since the stakes are high in these transactions - industry rumors of sales, mergers and acquisitions are closely monitored and followed.  It is this high-energy atmosphere that may account for Nokia’s inability to quell rumors swirling about selling its Nokia cell phone line of business to Microsoft.


    The Finnish company’s smartphone future was called into the speculation spotlight once again this Wednesday when Danske Bank informed its clients that Nokia will be selling the smartphone division to Microsoft sometime in the first half of 2012. This kind of claim carried serious clout as it came from the largest bank in Denmark. And with any speculation, there is money to be made which undermines some confidence in veracity. After making this announcement, Danske Bank changed the rating of Nokia stock from “Hold” to “Buy” - appropriately, and strangely similar sounding to Microsoft’s bing.com price predictor…).  Empower your ability to enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select accessories, such as, stylus & pens, SD Memory cards, data cables, chargers and batteries all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Nokia / Microsoft Rumors Reemerge


    This could be a great move for the Scandinavian company as they have seemed to struggle with the transition from feature phones to smartphones. The Symbian OS is nowhere as popular as its Google and Apple counterparts and its most recent smartphone releases are sporting Windows OS. The mobile accessories, consumer driven and end-user intuitive electronic gadgets have been surprisingly lacking as well which has affected the “stickiness” of the smartphones in the global market place. And where is the tablet to accompany and complement these technologies?


    In May Nokia vehemently denied the rumors of a sale, but they kept cropping up as reports continued to come in that the two companies were indeed in discussions. The response from Nokia this time? “We put these rumors to rest a long time ago.” Clearly not, Nokia. Clearly not.

  • Android Centric Malware Attacks Prompts

    Microsoft Windows Phone Giveaway


    By Megan Fleet


    Android Centric Malware Attacks Prompts


    Free smartphone? Yes, please! A recent tweet posted by a Microsoft employee, Ben Rudolph, stated that any Android phone owner whose phone is infected with malware can get a chance to win a free, new, Windows Phone. Best news is that the lucky recipients of Microsoft’s benevolence will have the extra funds to dress up their new mobile device with top of the line decorative skins and protective cases.


    A simple tweet with the unfortunate consumer’s story under the hashtag (#) windowsphone will get the process started. To sweeten the pot, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) recently released smartphones are powerful and a solid bet and for the cost savings, the little extra bits of memory and phone enhancing goodies are a great option too.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the innovative protection solutions which allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


     


    So what was the impetus for a Windows Phone promotion? Supposedly it is linked to the recent reported that there are more than 100 applications in the Google Android Market that have been infected with malware. Because of Google’s open source approach to applications, these malware attacks are certain to be more commonplace than in applications designed for iOS. The flip side is that Android users have many more devices, carriers, and plans to choose from with the higher number of unlocked phones available. Security software companies are beginning to treat smartphones as additional computers that also require antivirus protection, so Android customers can proactively seek protection.  Enhance your mobility.... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select accessories, such as, stylus & pens, SD memory cards, data cables, chargers, batteries and other premium electronic accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    The phone promotion may be a generous offer from the smartphone manufacturer, but there may be ulterior motives. Earlier this week, WinRumor posted a story highlighting a security flaw that would reboot any Windows Phone device via text message. After the reboot, the messaging client on the device is then non-functioning and completely useless.  Let  trend setting fashionable accessories express your unique style!  Our extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    There has not been a response from Microsoft yet regarding the WinRumors Monday nor given additional details on how this particular security flaw works. The video below may give you a better idea though.

    Report: Android Apps Make Only 24 Percent As Much As iOS Apps


    Show Me The Money!


    When the sun never set on the British Empire, prisoners were being shipped to Australia as prison labor. Ship captains were paid by the government to transport these offenders – paid by the number of prisoners on the ship when leaving Great Britain. The result? Overcrowding, malnutrition, and death.


    The government needed this free labor to tame the harsh continent, so how did they change the behavior of the ship captains? They changed the incentive. When ship captains were compensated based on the number of prisoners who arrived in Australia alive, conditions improved almost immediately and the labor source was preserved.


    Apply this concept to application developers in the 21st century and the continued popularity of iOS with those developers becomes a lot clearer. When reviewing the number of mobile devices activated every day (550,000 Android OS vs. Apple iOS’s 450,000), logical math should lead developers to Google Android for increased consumer traffic, and in turn, revenue. Much to Google chairman Eric Schmidt’s chagrin (although he is in denial), app developers continue to create their applications with iOS in mind. Discover the innovative protection solutions which allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases. Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Why? The money is with Apple devices. And Apple’s device accessories are more uniform and easier to develop for as well. When Flurry Analytics was reviewing analysis between the two platforms, the comparisons were sharp. Samples of in-app purchase data (those apps with more than a million daily active users that are available to both iOS and Android users) showed that the Google Android applications produced a mere 24% of revenue compared to Apple. Enhance your mobility.... turn your device into a power tool. Discover select accessories, such as, stylus & pens, SD memory cards, data cables, chargers, batteries and other premium electronic accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.
    Show Me The Money!
    But before jumping off the Android App Train, keep a few things in mind. Flurry didn’t release the details on what sample size was or other details of the analytical measures. Also, it was only in-app purchases tracked – not paid downloads. So while not conclusive, these numbers to point to potential motivation behind developer projects… And with iOS representing three-quarters of new projects started in the past six months, Google is figuratively still receiving a lot more dead prisoners. If they can change the motivation for developers, Android users will have the best of both worlds: unlocked phones, top of the line apps, and a powerful OS in their smartphone.

  • Why Hello Beautiful: Droid XYBOARD
    Posted on December 13, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Why Hello Beautiful: Droid XYBOARDAny guy or gal on the dating scene will emphasize the importance of first impressions. Let's be honest, shopping around for our tech toys and gadgets is a lot like a first date. Good lines? Nice feel? Good fit? Dressed to impress with personality enhancing mobile accessories?


    So when checking out the latest Motorola tablets, the DROID XYBOARD 8.2  - it quickly caught our attention and is worth the classic “pros” and “cons” list. In tablet-speak, the physical dimensions are nearing ideal at 8.2 inches. What should have been a beautiful fit in portrait orientation, Motorola made the decision to push a landscape orientation. This strange preferential treatment of landscape is also clear in the Motorola XOOM as well. When hand held,it is a more uncomfortable silhouette to handle than the portrait.  Choice of protective case may make a difference in comfort level, but that is a matter of personal preference for consumers. Protect your tablets with the latest innovative fashion design protective bags, sleeves and cases collection.


    Why Hello Beautiful: Droid XYBOARDBut, when held in portrait the black bezel is almost too narrow for comfort. Where is the Goldilocks medium? Luckily, the svelte, light size of the tablet negates usage fatigue in the end-user. In fact, the tapered edges, thin body, and overall lightness really make this tablet incredibly attractive.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    As any fashionista, this writer will own up to wanting to see equally attractive protective covers, cases, and the like to dress up this tablet. For the home, would like to see other accessories, such as , stylus & pens, docks, chargers, data cables, earpieces & headsets that integrate this kind of purchase into day to day living.


    What’s more, the price point for this beauty is enticing at about $249). Agreements with Verizon are available for greater discounts on the device, but as always, look into carrier options and contracts as the long term cost seriously outweighs the upfront additional costs on the device.


    Worthy of a second date? Likely. Do your homework and be comforted in the fact that the tablet market is ever growing and not nearly as exclusive / tied to carriers, so your choices are varied!
