Uber, Ola Cabs, Lyft and others : ‘digital services’ or transport companies?

This is a question you may not have asked yourself, I have, a few times but I always dismissed it. I just didn’t think it matters, but what do I know, turns out it so very much does. And while the company actually under question here is Uber, the outcome, and the answer to it, will be one that will affect each and every one of the above mentioned names, and others like them.

Right now, Uber is in a landmark court battle to convince Europe that it is not a transport company. Continue reading “Uber, Ola Cabs, Lyft and others : ‘digital services’ or transport companies?”

iPhone 8 rumours : Dual OIS , redesigned telephoto lens

While some may claim “The camera quality on Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus is already best in class” that is quite frankly not the case. And for iPhones, this hasn’t been the case for a while now. That’s not to say the camera has been less than fantastic or not upto par. The iPhone 7 may be selling well, but it will certainly not turn declining sales around. People associated with the industry weren’t expecting much of Apple’s iPhone 7 either, but they and fans are indeed expecting a lot from the iPhone 8.

iPhones users, Siri can help others access your contacts, messages and possibly nude pics

Your iPhone might not be as secure as you think – even when your device is locked and protected with a passcode.

A recently discovered security flaw affecting iOS 8.0 and up lets anyone bypass an iPhone’s password lock screen to access data including contact information, message logs as well as photos. The method is detailed in the YouTube video above by popular tech YouTuber iDeviceHelp and requires two things: physical access to the device and that Siri has been enabled on the lock screen.

Huawei aims to displace Apple from the No. 2 position within two years

Huawei had introduced two new flagship devices yesterday, the Huawei Mate 9 and the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design. The Huawei Mate 9 was one of the most anticipated smartphones this year, and is indeed a true powerhouse. The most interesting thing about it though, even though it has quite a few, is that Huawei claims that the machin-learning incorporated into the device will ensure that it learns your usage patterns and gets faster with usage and time opposite of what android smartphones are supposed to do.

Having that in mind, we knew that Huawei has big plans for the future, we’re talking about the third-largest smartphone manufacturer here after all. Huawei’s officials have gone on record before about their goals and today is no exception. Continue reading “Huawei aims to displace Apple from the No. 2 position within two years”

Android is as secure as iOS, Pixel as secure as iPhone

If someone tells a security enthusiast that an Android smartphone is more secure than an iPhone, there are chances that he or she may simply laugh it off. For years, Android phones have been known to be vulnerable when it comes to security compared to iOS, largely thanks to the difference in how security patches are rolled out across iOS and Android. But, Adrian Ludwig, the director of security at Android, vehemently disagrees in a short interview given to Motherboard.

“For almost all threat models they are nearly identical in terms of their platform-level capabilities,” said Ludwig referring to the level of security needed by most people. Continue reading “Android is as secure as iOS, Pixel as secure as iPhone”
