10 phones with equal or larger batteries than the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, but worse battery life

Many were disappointed when it became clear that Samsung has put a 3,000mAh battery at the back of the Galaxy Note5, which is 220mAh smaller than the one its predecessor employed. And frankly said, who wouldn’t – downgrading such a vital spec is not something we want to see. 
We also felt pretty sceptic how the Galaxy Note5 and its 3,000mAh juicer will perform, but that was until we laid our hands on the device and put it through our custom battery benchmark test. Lo and behold, it endured for 9 hours and 11 minutes and easily outpeformed …

Oppo R5s unveiled, offering a higher-spec’d version of the svelte Oppo R5

You might remember the Oppo R5, the 4.85mm thin handset that was introduced about 10 months ago. Oppo has beefed up the phone with the new Oppo R5s model. Bumping up the specs was a necessity here, especially since the performance of the Oppo R5 on some benchmark tests was not outstanding. The new model still measures 4.85mm, making it still one of the thinnest phones available.

The Oppo R5s keeps the 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screen found on the Oppo R5. That works out to a 424ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 615 chipset still provides the horsepower with an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, …

CISOs spend 77% of their time on tech, not enough time on strategy

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

According to the Deloitte CISO Transition Lab, a chief information security officer (CISO) has four faces — the strategist, the advisor, the guardian of business assets, and the technologist. The findings suggest that on average, CISOs spend 77 percent of their time as “technologists” and “guardians” on technical aspects of their positions, and that they would like to reduce this investment to 35 percent. “This demonstrates a recognizable shift in their desire to place greater emphasis on the “strategist” and “advisor” functions.” Faced with escalating cyber threats and increasingly complex regulatory mandates, CISOs are experiencing growing pressure to protect critical information and infrastructure assets, while also embracing strategic business initiatives to integrate a comprehensive enterprise approach to cybersecurity. To address this problem, Deloitte developed the CISO Transition Lab to help accelerate a CISO’s performance. “As organizations realise that cyber risk is intimately linked to their innovation and growth strategies, expectations of CISOs are changing dramatically,” said Ed Powers, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “An effective CISO can no longer rely on his or her technical expertise alone. They must understand how strategic initiatives create risks and develop security programs that balance the need to drive business performance with the growing […]

BlackBerry expected to post a small loss for fiscal Q2; company’s operations valued at under $300M

Wall Street analysts are expecting BlackBerry to report a loss for its fiscal second quarter of approximately $39.2 million dollars, or 7 cents a share. That would follow the beleaguered firm’s fiscal Q1 loss of 5 cents a share, or $28 million. For the full year, the mean estimate of Wall Street analysts calls for BlackBerry to lose $84 million, or 15 cents a share.

The BlackBerry Passport and the BlackBerry Classic have underwhelmed in terms of sales. The company thought it had a big winner with the Passport. With its 4.5-inch, 1440 x 1440 resolution screen and its 1:1 aspect ratio, the …

Who Should Be Responsible For IT Security?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Typically, when a cybersecurity problem arises, it’s the IT department that gets it in the neck. Ostensibly, that makes sense. After all, if someone is in your network mining your database for corporate secrets, it’s hardly the office manager or the accounts receivable department’s lookout, right? Perhaps. On the other hand, there’s a case to be made that putting Canadian IT departments alone in charge of the cybersecurity budget and decision making may not be wholly effective. Some believe that carving out cybersecurity as a separate function could lead to better, cheaper information security overall. John Lyons, chief executive of the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance, is one of them. For security to be a first-class citizen, it needs to have its own champion outside the IT department, he believes. “If you have a CISO reporting through a CIO or if you put the cybersecurity budget in the technology budget, then the security spend gets lost among other priorities,” he warned. “It’s right to segregate out the expenditure on security as a discrete part of the overall spend in the company.” Hey, big spender Tim Holman, director of the international board for the Information Systems Security Association, agrees. It can […]

Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition unveiled in Brazil, packed with 256GB of internal storage

Would 256GB be enough internal storage for your phone? In Brazil on Friday, Asus unveiled another variant of the Asus ZenFone 2, this time the Deluxe Special Edition of the handset. What makes this version so ‘Deluxe’ and ‘Special’ is the 256GB of internal storage that is stuffed inside the phone. That should be enough memory to store photos, videos, apps and other files.

The rest of the specs include a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5.5-inch screen, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Intel Atom Z3580 SoC is under the hood, with an octa-core 2.5GHz CPU and the PowerVR G6430 GPU. 4GB of …
