Windows 10 users can now get an app that hides the taskbar in tablet mode

Windows 10 allows users on tablets to switch between desktop mode and tablet mode. While there is a way to auto-hide that taskbar in desktop mode by going through a couple of menus, there’s no way Windows 10 allows users to do the same thing in tablet mode, which has been a sore subject for many people. Now, a small company called Nibbler Apps has launched a product, Auto-Hide Taskbar, that fixes this issue.

Samsung runs out of phones for its test drive promotion aimed at iPhone users

It was just Thursday when we told you about Samsung’s attempt to get Apple iPhone users to switch to a Samsung Galaxy Note5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge or a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. Any U.S. resident 18 or older with an iPhone hooked up to an active wireless account, could go to SamsungPromotions.com and arrange to test drive one of the three aforementioned handsets for just $1. Samsung sends the phone with an activated SIM card, and a guide to help those test driving one of the devices learn how to use it.

Apparently, Samsung’s offer must have tempted quite a number of iPhone users, because …

OnePlus offers new build of OxygenOS to protect OnePlus One users from Stagefright

Smartphone manufacturers and carriers have been rushing to send out software updates to repair the Stagefright exploit. Stagefright uses a malicious MMS to take control of parts of your phone, allowing your personal data to be stolen. More specifically, the exploit uses code found in the Android multimedia library that has been around since the days of Froyo. It is estimated that 95% of active Android handsets are vulnerable. That number has been slowly declining as more and more phones are being updated with a patch that prevents the Stagefright exploit from taking over.

Today, OnePlus …

Google blesses Project Fi users with a one-time $100 replacement for the Google Nexus 6

Out of all of Google’s projects, the Project Fi MVNO – which stands for Mobile Virtual Network Operator – is probably one of the most interesting ones, especially since it’s already commercially available, and not just a moonshot attempt like some of Google’s other projects. At the moment, the only smartphone that works with Project Fi is the Nexus 6, a smartphone that is manufactured by Lenovo-owned Motorola but carries Google’s branding. If you’ve purchased the Nexus 6 from Google through Project Fi, we’ve got some good news for you: the company is now offering a one-time replacement of the smartphone …

Hackers can track phone users’ location by looking at power supply

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Researchers have found out it is possible to track someone’s mobile phone by looking at how much battery has been used. The data does not need the users’ permission to be shared, while it can help track a phone with up to 90 percent accuracy. The findings were carried out by a group of researchers at Stanford University and the Israeli defense company Rafael. The created a technique, which they have named PowerSpy and can gather information concerning the location of Android phones. It does this by simply tracking how much power has been used over a certain time. How much power is used depends on a number of factors. For example, the further away the phone is from a transmitter, the more power is needed to get a signal. Physical objects such as mountains or buildings also have an impact on the amount of battery needed as these obstacles can block the phone’s signal, meaning there are temporary ‘power drains’ on the devices. “A sufficiently long power measurement (several minutes) enables the learning algorithm to ‘see’ through the noise,” the researchers said, which was reported by Wired. “We show that measuring the phone’s aggregate power […]

Google Voices Concerns Regarding Government Warrants, Seeks to Protect Users

AH-GOOGLE-IO-2014-144

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Google has joined advocacy organisations such as the ACLU in voicing their concerns about proposed Amendments to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 41 by sending a comment letter to The Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules. This rule outlines how warrants are issued to obtain information. This rule places limitations on how and what types of warrants may be issued. More specifically it states that a judge may not issue a search and seizure warrant outside his or her jurisdiction though there are exceptions to this rule. The Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure wants to include new rules for conducting “remote access” searches of electronic storage media. It stipulates that the physical location of the media must be concealed through electronic means. It also includes provisions related to botnet investigations in some cases. What does all that mean? Well, Google claims that the new provisions that The Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure have proposed will have a huge impact concerning warrant power and that because it will give the Department of Justice (DoJ)  such far-reaching power, that this matter should be left to Congress to handle, and not an […]
