Lenovo is building a smartphone based on an iPhone hoax from 2012

Remember back in 2012 when a local Fox affiliate thought some crazy iPhone 5 concept with a built-in laser keyboard and hologram projector was real? The video featuring that iPhone concept phone has since amassed more than 69 million views on YouTube, and it looks like at least a few of those views were Lenovo employees.

That’s right, Lenovo plans to make that crazy concept a reality. More →

Lenovo’s awesome Yoga 3 Pro has me even more excited for the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air

Not to long ago I wrote about the agonizing decision I will have to make this year: Namely, picking between the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air and the 12-inch iPad Pro. While it’s still too early to say what would be the better choice between the two, I’m definitely more excited right now about the slimmer MacBook Air model, and I have a Lenovo laptop to thank for it.

Lenovo Superfish Adware Scandal

Interview with Lenovo’s CTO will scare anyone still thinking of buying a Lenovo product

Interview with Lenovo’s CTO will scare anyone still thinking of buying a Lenovo product

I’ve long wondered which would be worse for Lenovo — if the company decided to install the Superfish adware onto its machines despite knowing its potential to be a major security vulnerability, or if it really had no clue about the risks involved with this kind of software. A New York Times interview with Lenovo CTO Peter Hortensius has now left me hoping that Lenovo has just been lying about its foreknowledge of Superfish’s capabilities because the alternative is just too scary.

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

News broke late last week that Lenovo had been shipping laptops with man-in-the-middle adware preinstalled which could hijack HTTPS traffic and insert its own ads onto websites that users were visiting.

This major security threat was initially found lurking in just two pieces of software on Lenovo’s computers, but the number rose dramatically over the weekend as Ars Technica reports security researchers discovered more applications riddled with adware. As of Sunday, at least 14 applications have been found to use the technology which puts users at risk. More →

Lenovo finally admits its sleazy adware ploy put its own customers at risk of being hacked

After news broke this week that Lenovo was putting dangerous adware on its computers, the company responded by removing the offending software from new machines and disabling it on the computers it had already shipped with. The company also insisted that the adware posed no security risks to any of its customers, a statement that was met with incredulity by security experts. However, the company has now admitted that installing Superfish onto its computers opened up big security holes that it’s now scrambling to fix.

How to find out if Superfish infected your computer – and what to do about it

If you follow anything having to do with tech on the Internet, you have undoubtedly read something about Superfish in the past 24 hours.

As it turns out, however, Superfish is a pretty frightening piece of adware. More →
