Another Banking App: Navy Federal Credit Union Releases Android App

by: Aerol BibatAugust 17, 2011

If you were part of the US Army, you probably banked with the Navy Federal Credit Union, it being one of the country’s largest credit unions and which happens to service the entire Department of Defense and their civilian dependents. That’s a lot of people serviced right there.

Banking’s always been a bit of a chore, so a lot of banks and credit unions have been putting out apps to make financial dealing not so onerous. And the NFCU is not an exception as the credit union just put up their app in the Android Market.

The mobile banking app does all that you expect out of a mobile banking service. Members can immediately check their account [...]

Symantec Brings Norton Mobile Security To Android

by: Aerol BibatAugust 15, 2011

Android malware is on the rise and it would be best to take a look at your security measures. Android tablets are similar enough to desktops and laptops that a normal antivirus designed for the Android platform should be enough. But how about phones? There are quite a few pieces of security software already available on the market for your phone, but having another one made available is great at expanding a person’s choice.

Symantec has a previously had Norton Mobile Security as a beta – but it seems that the company is satisfied enough with it that they’re finally rolling out the final version. Coming in two setting, free and for-pay, Norton Mobile Security [...]

Over A Dozen Android Apps Have Confirmed Vulnerabilities

by: Aerol BibatAugust 15, 2011

Android has a whole lot of apps in the market. That’s actually one of the many attractions that the platform has. Unfortunately, it seems that these apps are going to be a source of problems for the user. Privateer Labs, a mobile security research center, claims that over a dozen commonly-used Android apps can leave phones vulnerable to phishing and hijacking. Riley Hassell, the founder of Privateer Labs, has already alerted Google to these apps but has publicly refused to name them.

Google, however, is a bit wary about these claims. A Google spokesman has responded that several Android security experts are unconvinced about Privateer Labs’ [...]

Vizio’s 8-Inch Gingerbread Tablet Released

by: Aerol BibatAugust 15, 2011

Good Android tablets can be pretty expensive. While it’s easy to find the cheap Chinese ones, the really good stuff is usually priced upwards 400 dollars. The cheapest right now of the bunch spearheaded by the iPad 2 is the Asus Eee Pad. Well, that’s going to change with the release of the Vizio 8″ Tablet.

The name may not exactly be very original but it looks to be positioned by its Irvine, California-based maker to sell on the market, mainly through price. Right now, the tablet is priced at a hundred dollars below the Eee Pad – an affordable  $300 at Sam’s Club and Walmart, while a bundle can be purchased from Vizio directly, with the [...]

Samsung Hoping To Get Past Apple’s European Ban

by: Aerol BibatAugust 15, 2011

Samsung and Apple have been at each others’ throats over patents for awhile now. The latest casualty in the entire mess was the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Regional Court of Düsseldorf recently decided that the tablet should be banned from being sold in EU countries, a solid hit at its marketing strategy.

However, Samsung isn’t calling it quits just yet. The Korean company is all set to appeal the ban at a hearing scheduled for August 25.

The big European ban is supposedly Apple’s knock-out punch for this round, but with Samsung not surrendering the European market just yet, it may still backfire on the company. This is because, according to German [...]

Cyanogen Mod Brings Android 2.3.5 To The Motorola Triumph

by: Aerol BibatAugust 14, 2011

The Motorola Triumph is one of the better handsets in the market right now. It’s got a decent 4.1-inch WVGA screen, nice 2GB of storage, and a fairly reasonable $300 price tag. The main problem with it is that it only uses vanilla Froyo. This puts it at a disadvantage compared to phones that are packing Gingerbread. There are also several advantages that aren’t available to Froyo users, like a better and improved interface and others. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t announced any plans to upgrade the phone to a more modern OS, which is a pity.

Well, here’s some good news for Triumph owners. The CyanogenMod7 was recently ported to the Triumph and the the [...]

Acer’s 7-Inch Honeycomb Tablet Wins The Race

by: Aerol BibatAugust 14, 2011

Google made Android 3.0, better known as Honeycomb, especially for tablets and slates and takes full advantage of its larger screens and more powerful chipsets. While many of the current Honeycomb tablets are of the larger 10-inch variety, Acer has bucked the trend by releasing the first 7-inch Honeycomb tablet. The Iconia Tab A100 just landed on store shelves this weekend. It’s been delayed a few times but it’s finally here folks.

So what does the A100 bring to the table other than the small form factor and Honeycomb? Well, the A100 is packing nVidia’s Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the CPU of the moment, and 1GB of RAM. [...]

G2 Arnova Android Tablets Coming From Archos

by: Aerol BibatAugust 13, 2011

When you think about it, the current generation of cheap Android tablets isn’t going to last long. First, the constant pace of technology is going to make them obsolete pretty fast. Second, others are going to be delivering a better experience for pretty much the same price. That’s why it’s no surprise that we’re starting to see the second generation of these tablets.

Archos has been selling their Arnova line – and last week we saw the G2 version of the company’s eight-inch tablet at the FCC. Well, it seems that isn’t where the company is stopping. We’re set to see some more [...]

Huddle Up And Have Some Fun With NFL’s Fantasy Football App

by: Aerol BibatAugust 13, 2011

When you think American football, you usually envision the green fields of the stadium filled with grunting, groaning, heavily muscled men. A popular sport, but it can be a bit difficult to get into when you’re not exactly the prime target for it. Mostly it’s because of the intensely physical aspect of it – the smashing bodies, the titanic struggles on the field.

Well, here’s one way of getting into it. Whenever football season comes around, it’s also time for fantasy football leagues to start up. If you haven’t heard of it yet – which is difficult to imagine – fantasy football is where you essentially manage a team: drafting, [...]
