New version of Play Store app hints at built-in malware scanner and new wish list feature

by: Gary SimsOctober 12, 2012
A new version of the Play Store app has been released and it is starting to roll out to Android owners. Google Play Store 3.9.16 includes the ability to remove apps from the All Apps list. This is particularly useful if you have tried various free apps and choose not to use them. At the moment the All Apps list can become quite cluttered as it remembers every app you downloaded from the beginning of time. However more intriguing is that the contents of the .apk file (that is the application package file, the way apps are bundled up and distributed) contains references to a built-in malware scanner and a wish list feature.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review

by: Carl ParkerOctober 5, 2012

When the world first saw the Galaxy Note, people had mixed reactions. Some said that the device was just too big to be a phone but too small to be a tablet. Other people, however, fell head over heels with the device.

The screen was large enough to make media viewing an absolute joy and the S Pen, the Galaxy Note’s stylus, brought a whole new level of fun to gaming.
