Bluebox Security Reveals That 99% Android Devices Have Major App Vulnerability

Android-Unlocked

The company Bluebox security, has found a security hole in Android’s operating system. What’s even more scary about this news is the report states that this security hole has been around since Android 1.6 Donut. Apparently what can happen is malicious developers can change the APK of a legitimate company, without any breaks to its cryptographic signature. This basically means that if an app is hacked on Android, the user would not know and could be entering their information and sending it to the malicious hackers unknowingly.

Facebook is experimenting with a lot of mobile-centric ideas, aiming to take the social network’s presence beyond just Facebook.  Although it has reportedly been in the works for well over a year, it appears as though Facebook is working on a news aggregating app.

Now according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Facebook is developing a new tool that focuses on news consumption in order to re-shape its identity as a social network, like Twitter, that can compete in the news consumption space. The project, which is reportedly called “Reader,” would be a feature that runs on Apple’s iOS Devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The social network has been quietly working on a service, internally called Reader, that displays content from Facebook users and publishers in a new visual format tailored for mobile devices, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The project, which the company has been developing for more than a year, is designed to showcase news content in particular. Recent versions of Reader resemble Flipboard Inc., a smartphone and tablet app that aggregates stories from multiple sources and lets users swipe to flip through articles, said the people with knowledge of the project.

While it’s unclear when Facebook will be ready to unveil the product, if it ever is, the Reader project is a sign the company is trying to get users to spend more time with it on mobile devices—and to see more ads.

Facebook is clearly making an initiative to be more than just a social network to share photos and statuses

Apple iOS 7 unveiled

1
We heard it would be flat. We heard it would be black and white. We heard that it would be
a totally different experience.It is. iOS 7, the latest version of Apple’s flagship mobile
operating system, is here, and it’s almost entirely different from the versions that
came before. Gone are the skeuomorphic designs and 3D effects, replaced by Sir Jony
Ive’s “flat design.” Rumors had been flying for weeks about the new OS and now it’s here
and it is, at least at this early reckoning, a massive change for the six year old operating
system.

  • First, we must remember that Ive, Apple’s industrial designer now in control of software

following the departure of Scott Forstall, isn’t a believer in interfaces that copy real-world

objects. In the past, making the Notes app look like a legal pad or the calendar app look

like a Moleskine calendar notebook were part of the iOS design philosophy, as ingrained in the OS as “Slide To Unlock.” All that is gone now.

Are you ready for a whole new world?

iPad 5 coming next week? Gumdrop Cases is betting on it

Gumdrop is so confident Apple will introduce an iPad 5 on July 10 that it’s already manufactured cases for it.

Tim Hickman, founder and CEO of Gumdrop Cases, has made it a tradition to announce cases for major Apple products ahead of their launches. He’s currently batting 4 for 5, only whiffing badly in 2011 when another of his companies — Hard Candy Cases — released an iPhone 5 case in advance of the iPhone 4S launch and it didn’t fit. It wasn’t even close.

Now Hickman is stepping up to the plate again, trotting out new cases for the iPad 5, which he expects Apple to unveil at next week’s 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Rumors and leaked images of a new “large” iPad with a trimmer design have been circulating for months, but the time frame for its launch remains up in the air. Initially, some Apple watchers thought the company would unveil the product at this year’s WWDC, but other reports had the launch being pushed to this fall.

If the rumors are accurate, the fifth-generation iPad will share the iPad Mini’s thinner bezel and weigh around 25 percent less than the iPad 4, which looks identical to the iPad 3 but has a faster processor.

Hickman wouldn’t say who his sources are, but he’s confident enough in them to start producing new cases for the iPad 5 and put them up for preorder. In fact, a press sample of the $59.99 Gumdrop Drop Tech is due to arrive later today, and we’ll update the post with new pictures once we get it. Gumdrop is also manufacturing the Gumdrop Bounce ($34.95) and Gumdrop Drop Tech Designer Series ($59.99). They’re scheduled to ship on June 10. (It’s worth noting that sometimes cases built on leaked specs don’t fit absolutely perfectly, but presumably Gumdrop will allow customers to return cases if they don’t fit perfectly.)

While I don’t know what Apple is going to introduce next week, I think he’s got a decent shot at being right. It would be logical for Apple to release the iPad 5 ahead of the iPad Mini Retina (or whatever it calls a Mini with a higher-resolution display), so the two products don’t compete with each other out of the gate. Apple is more likely to introduce the Mini Retina in the fall along with a next-generation iPhone — or iPhones.

Except for iOS 7 and quite possibly some updates to Apple’s computer lineup, it’s unclear what new Apple products we’ll see next week. But there’s one thing we can count on: if Apple does debut the iPad 5, we’ll see dozens of other iPad 5 cases introduced within hours of the launch.

You can bet the farm on that.

BlackBerry puts kibosh on tweeted release date for BBM on Android, iOS

bbm1

BlackBerry has told that the date mentioned in the T-Mobile UK tweet is inaccurate, and that the company has never indicated a specific date for the release of BBM on iOS and Android.

“On May 14, BlackBerry announced plans to make its ground-breaking mobile social network, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), available to iOS and Android users this summer, subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play,” BlackBerry said in a statement.

“While there have been reports that BBM will be available to iOS and Android on June 27, this is not accurate. We will communicate an update as soon as we have an availability date to share.”

On a related note, the tweet from T-Mobile UK with the June 27 date has since been deleted.

Apple Celebrates iTunes 10th Anniversary With Timeline

itunes-logo

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of iTunes, Apple has put together an entertaining multimedia timeline of the digital music store.

The iTunes’ formal birthday isn’t until Sunday, but the timeline, which is called “A Decade of iTunes,” is online now in the music section of the store.

la-fi-tn-apple-celebrates-itunes-10year-annive-001

The timeline marks the period from the time iTunes was first launched on April 28 2003 right up to the release of Justin Timberlake’s new album on March 19 this year. Peppered along with the milestones are the best selling song and album on the day of the milestone (for e.g. on 10 May 2005 when the iTunes store was officially launched in European countries like Denmarak, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, ‘Speed of Sound’ from Coldplay’s X & Y was the best selling song, while Morcheeba’s ‘The Antidote’ was the best selling album).

“The sky was falling, and iTunes provided a place where we were going to monetize music and in theory stem the tide of piracy. So, it was certainly a solution for the time,” said Michael McDonald, who co-founded ATO Records with Dave Matthews and whose Mick Management roster includes John Mayer and Ray LaMontagne.

The iTunes music store became much more than a solution; it changed how we consume music and access entertainment. It’s not only music’s biggest retailer, it also dominates the digital video market, capturing 67 percent of the TV show sale market and 65 percent of the movie sale market, according to information company NPD group. Its apps are the most profitable, it has expanded to books and magazines, and it is now available in 119 countries. This week, iTunes posted a record $2.4 billion in revenue in first-quarter earnings.

The app store now reaches 90 percent of the world’s population, Oppenheimer said, and is available in 155 countries. There are now over 850,000 iOS apps in the store, 350,000 of which are tailored for iPad.

As of the second fiscal quarter of 2013, iTunes now offers 35 million songs in 119 countries, 60,000 movies in 109 countries and 1.7 million iBook titles.

Apple also said that payouts to app developers has reached $9 billion since the App Store initiative launched in 2008, and the company is currently meting out some $1 billion per quarter to app makers.
