Doogee says phone makers need to stop copying the iPhone

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Doogee sent out an email the other day to gizChina, with a new manifesto. The company says that smartphone manufacturers need to stop manufacturing handsets that look like the iPhone, with those rounded edges. Doogee says that this desire to be different is what pushed the company to use square corners for its upcoming Doogee F5.

The Doogee F5 features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5.5-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 401ppi. Under the hood is the MediaTek 6753 SoC, which includes an octa-core CPU and the the Mali-T720 …

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Richard Neale, former director at Esselar, a company contracted by Aviva to run its security network, has been jailed for 18 months for hacking 900 phones belonging to Aviva insurance employees.  In Guildford Crown Court on Monday he admitted committing four cyber-crimes against his former company under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, described by the prosecution as acts of revenge against the company he helped set up. When Esselar was due to present a security demonstration to its client Aviva, Neale hacked into 900 mobiles belonging to the insurance company via Esselar’s security software then wiped their data.

The company submitted a damages claim for £70,000 and described the future losses as ‘incalculable’, issuing a statement saying: “Our brand was damaged to the point we felt we needed to rebrand.” The company did rebranded itself as Mobliciti.

Aviva ‘revenge’ phone hacker jailed for 18 months

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A man has been jailed for 18 months for hacking into 900 phones belonging to the insurance company Aviva. Richard Neale, 40, pleaded guilty to carrying out the attack as revenge after falling out with colleagues. He was previously a director at Esselar, a company contracted by Aviva to run its security network. Prosecutors said data had been wiped on hundreds of devices. Esselar missed out on £500,000 of future business deals as a result. Neale admitted to hacking into the Aviva system in May 2014, on the night that Esselar was giving a security demonstration. Prosecutors said that this had led Aviva to end its relationship with Esselar, meaning that the latter had missed out on an £80,000-per-year contract. Neale had also created a fake identity within his former company’s system and used it to reject expenses claims from his erstwhile colleagues, the court heard. In a separate offence, he hacked into Esselar’s Twitter account and replaced its logo with a bleeding heart — a calling card meant to make it clear that its security had been compromised. ‘Damaged confidence’ At a sentencing hearing at Guildford Crown Court on Monday, judge Neil Stewart said that Neale’s actions had “damaged […]

But right now, even before Windows 10 Mobile has been rolled out, non-Lumia Windows Phone 8.1 powered handsets can download and install Lumia Camera.

According to those who tested the app on a Huawei Ascend W1 and the Samsung ATIV SE, not all of the features of Lumia Camera work on non-Lumia handsets. Certain functions, like using the app to set the focus and exposure time of the rear camera, caused the app to crash. The …
