3 ways this tiny new SanDisk chip will significantly improve your next Android phone

One of the problems smartphone owners always complain about is local storage.

However, SanDisk just announced a new flash memory chip that might help certain OEMs improve their mobile memory game when it comes to future flagship devices. More →

The best accessory you can’t use with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge

The best accessory you can’t use with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge

Samsung on Sunday announced two gorgeous Galaxy S models. Our early impressions of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is that they look and feel better than anything Samsung has ever done when it comes to smartphones— probably because they had good inspiration, some would say. But like any gadget, they’re not perfect, and some people will quickly find things to criticize, with one particular missing feature coming to mind that hardcore Android users will find hard to adjust to.

How to battle Android bloatware without rooting your device

How to battle Android bloatware without rooting your device

One of the problems with Android devices is the amount of OEM and carrier bloatware that’s preloaded on them, which can’t be easily removed by users. While South Korea has passed a law that will force device makers and carriers to allow users to easily delete pre-installed apps they don’t find useful, similar laws do not exist in other countries. That means users have to resort to rooting their device to get rid of unwanted software in order to free up storage and/or improve device performance. More →

Analyst charged with insider trading and fraud after leaking Apple sales data

A research analyst and a former executive who revealed insider information about Apple’s sales have both been charged, reports Reuters. Analyst John Kinnucan on Friday was charged with two counts of securities fraud, two counts of conspiracy and one count of insider trading from a civil case filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Between 2008 and 2010, Kinnucan allegedly paid insiders with cash, trips and other incentives for inside information regarding Apple. Kinnnucan then sold the information to hedge funds for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Separately, former SanDisk executive Don Barnetson pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and securities fraud. “I conspired with a consultant to provide confidential information with respect to my employer at the time, SanDisk Corp,” Barnetson said. Barnetson could faces up to five years in prison but could get leniency for his “substantial cooperation.” Kinnucan could faces up to 20 years in prison on each of the securities fraud counts and one of the conspiracy counts, and up to five years on the other conspiracy count.

Sprint looks beyond consumer wireless services, will target wireless-enabled consumer electronics

Sprint looks beyond consumer wireless services, will target wireless-enabled consumer electronics

In a move to counteract its steadily declining subscriber base and sinking financial situation, Sprint is seemingly looking to open up its network to more non-traditional mobile devices. Sprint is already host to the Amazon Kindle Whispernet service, which provides wireless delivery of eBooks to the popular eReader and serves to distinguish the Kindle from its competition. The carrier also has an agreement with Ford that will outfit select 2009 truck models with cellular data connectivity. In an attempt to expand beyond the Whispernet and Ford offerings, Sprint is reportedly in talks with companies like Garmin, Eastman Kodak and SanDisk about adding EV-DO and presumably WiMax capability to what are traditionally non-wireless devices. If consumers are not interested in Sprint’s network, it only makes sense that Sprint would try to woo consumer electronics powerhouses into using its wireless network. How many people would jump all over a point and shoot camera or an HD pocket camcorder like the Zi6 that could wirelessly upload photos or videos instantaneously? In this age of instant communication and voyeurism, we would guess a lot! In any event, we like this play by Sprint a lot — big commercial contracts mean big revenue that won’t be jumping ship in droves every time an admin fee changes and the ETF is waived…
