Folks, may use the Android OS...especially for messaging. The app AirDroid has had 10-50 million installs not couting those done via the AirDroid website...and it's a very vulnerable app.

AirDroid was approached quietly and said they would fix it, but in its latest update, no fixes were present. 

"The security issues are mainly due to AirDroid using the same HTTP request to authorize the device and send usage statistics. The request is encrypted, but uses a hardcoded key...

First I would like to point out that the user interface for windows eight was made for cell phones beca7se the screen is to small. It works really well for small screens. Now on a lab top or computer where screens are from 14" to30" why do I want huge icons. That is part of it why would I not want a start menu where I have a list of runnable programs. Don't get me wrong I like my program folder where I can go into it and do other things. Thus is why the desktop is superior. User accounts is ...

This device works through a Windows phone. It uses location and a network of info beacons in cities to determine location and routes to use in getting from one place to another.

The device was developed with the charity "Guide Dogs" and it's available in Britain only at this point.

Another interesting feature is that instead of using earbuds, it uses bone conduction through the jaw to relay information, thus not compromising the users ears to hear what's going o...

Verizon your provider? You can’t pay your bill? Not your fault.

Turns out Verizon is having major problems with its billing software. The Northeast, Midwest and Southern regional customers are hitting a wall when trying to pay their bills. Worse? No ETA for a fix.

Apparently this glitch isn’t affecting home phone systems or internet connection, but, if your bill is due right now, you could have problems.

Engadget is tracking the problem, but so far no news of a fix...

Guys, I hope this isn't considered spam.  

 

I got a great half price deal on this and I love it, so I wanted to tell you guys, in case someone else wanted the discount.

 

It's a nice Bluetooth keyboard/stand for any tablet. I use it with my iPad and my Android. It's at less than half price from the MFG. and sells at Staples for double what I paid!

 

Listed at $129.99, I paid $39.99.  Staples dot com has it at $79.99.

I've written about Google Glass before...never figured California had the brains to enact a truly positive statute like this one.

Well, that lady just received a citation in part for distracted driving....

She might just beat it:

"California state law pertaining to the incident, V C Section 27602 Television, states that a person “shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other similar means of v...

Anyone own a tablet?

 

I have a question.

 

Since most electronics today have lithium batteries, is it ok to leave a tablet plugged into the charger like you would a laptop?

 

Yrag once told me it was fine to leave my laptop plugged into the wall as much as I want.

 

I never unplug mine unless travelling.

 

Is the same ok for tablets?

I was contemplating a Surface Pro to replace my iPad1.  Not now.  Especially since its Citrix connectivity is severely constrained.

I'll go with iPad5 when it's out.

I've been using Android phones for a long time now, and Linux even longer, but recently I have become something of a fan of Windows 8. I am running 8 on one of my laptops and have a Surface tablet. I really like it.

I have been seriously considering dropping my Galaxy s3 Android phone for a Windows phone. As I am on Verizon and don't want to switch carriers I am currently limited to two phones, the HTC 8x and the Nokia 822. The HTC is arguably the higher end hardware and would normall...

I avoided the whole iPad surge patiently waiting on a fully functional Windows tablet. So for Christmas my wonderful wife decided I had waited long enough! The Surface was finally released and getting good reviews so right before ordering I (me being me ) decided I should do some investigating . I had been wanting an Asus tablet because I have an awesome Asus laptop that will smoke most desktop PC's that has giving me a ton of trouble free service.(second Asus laptop) The last few months I h...
