Next on Samsung’s security feature list: retina scans

by: J. Angelo RacomaJuly 13, 2014

Mobile devices are increasingly becoming personal and ubiquitous — which means you’re probably carrying more personal information on your smartphone than your wallet. This comes with a host of security issues, of course. If you lose your smartphone or tablet, then whoever picks it up might be able to glean a lot of information about you, to the extent that your device can be a potential threat to the security of your identity.

You lock your phone anyway, you say? But a Consumer Reports survey done earlier this year indicates that only a third of Americans bother to lock their devices with at least a four-digit PIN. Most don’t even bother with a [...]

How long should a smartwatch last?

by: Steven MartinezJuly 12, 2014

It’s still the early days for smartwatches. With the first few Android Wear devices on the market and a 3rd one on the horizon we have a pretty good glimpse of what wearables might be like. Android Wear is exciting and feels generations ahead of what came before it.  But like any burgeoning technology, the hardware and software are going to grow exponentially with each generation.

As somebody who would want to buy a smartwatch, it might be important to consider how long they will last before becoming obsolete. After all, $200 being the low end, it’s hardly an impulse buy for most people. Just how long will a generation be for smartwatches? That’s a difficult thing to [...]

China deems the iPhone a national security threat

by: Erik EggersJuly 12, 2014

On Friday, China’s state run China Central Television (CCTV)  deemed Apple’s iPhone a national security threat. The threat is due to Apple’s “Frequent Location” feature that is a part of Location Services on the iPhone. According to the Wall Street Journal, the fear is based around the information contained within this feature that would, in essence, enable anyone who had this information to know of China’s secrets.

Apple has not commented on the report, but according to their support page, the feature can be customized or turned off in the device settings. Apple also claims that the information collected is only kept on the device and it will not be sent to [...]

Why Android One was Google’s most important announcement at I/O

by: Bobby SitukangpolesJuly 4, 2014
In less than 12 months, we could see Android One smartphones with HD screens and quad-core internals, maybe even LTE, for under $100. That means that even folks earning less than $200 a month would be able to enjoy features that even sophisticated consumers in mature markets consider attractive. If this is not the very realization of democratization in mobile technology, then I don't know what is.
