That being the case, users hoping to walk into their local Apple retail store on April 24th and pick out the exact model they want may want to think twice.

Android Apps Install Malware

Scary exploit may let hackers target nearly 50% of Android phones with malware

Scary exploit may let hackers target nearly 50% of Android phones with malware

By on March 26, 2015 at 4:20 PM.

Malware is never an easy subject for Android device owners. Savvy users usually say the matter is overblown and that they know how to protect themselves against such threats, though that’s not always the case. Google acknowledges the matter but usually minimizes it, though it’s also constantly coming up with better means for protecting the safety of users.

New research from Palo Alto Networks has brought to light a terrifying vulnerability in Android that could be used for secretly installing malware apps on a device on almost 50% of existing devices, Business Insider reports.

16 smartphones that ‘killed’ the iPhone

16 smartphones that ‘killed’ the iPhone

By on March 26, 2015 at 3:06 PM.

Ever since the iPhone became a bonafide hit, critics and tech pundits have been predicting that it was only a matter of time before Apple’s iconic smartphone would fall from grace. Whether it was Apple’s staunch refusal to support mobile flash or the company’s admittedly bizarre App Store rejection policies, there has never been a shortage of reasons tech pundits have clung to in order to bolster their claims that some competing smartphone would finally be the “iPhone killer” the world has been waiting for.
