Meerkat Vs Periscope

Meerkat is dying – and it’s taking U.S. tech journalism with it

Meerkat is dying – and it’s taking U.S. tech journalism with it

By on March 30, 2015 at 8:50 AM.

About three days after it received a lavish new funding round, Meerkat died an ugly and embarrassing death. It is hard to decide whether the Great Meerkat Debacle that has unfolded over the past week is a tragedy or a comedy — probably a bit of both.

The mobile streaming app that had whipped U.S. tech journalists into a frenzy announced $14 million in new funding on Thursday. Money poured in from Jared Leto, Greylock Partners and other illustrious sources. On the same day, Twitter launched its rival streaming app called Periscope. Apparently, investors didn’t stop to ponder why Meerkat people rushed to cash in so aggressively only a month after the app had debuted.

Well, we now know why. More →

How a slow Windows software update punished a German basketball team

How a slow Windows software update punished a German basketball team

There’s a hilarious story coming out of Germany which relays how a slow Windows software update ended up relegating a German basketball team to a lower tiered league.

A quick backdrop: It’s common across some European sports leagues to move under-performing teams to lower tiered divisions. As a quick analogy, it’d be akin to the New York Knicks being demoted to the NBA D-league for having the worst record in the NBA.

That said, here’s what recently went down in the German ProB basketball league.

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

Malware is never an easy subject for Android device owners.

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.
