10 Incredibly Simple Things You Should Be Doing To Protect Your Privacy

 

Please tell me you have a password protecting this.

Over the weekend, I wound up at Washington, D.C.’s Trapeze School with a group of friends. Before one of them headed up a ladder to attempt a somersault landing from the trapeze bar, she handed me her phone and asked me to take photos. “What’s the password?” I asked. “I don’t use one,” she replied. My jaw dropped as it often does when someone I know tells me they’re choosing not to take one of the very simplest steps for privacy protection, allowing anyone to snoop through their phone with the greatest of ease, to see whichever messages, photos, and sensitive apps they please.

Apple Witness Claims Samsung Abused Its ‘Monopoly’ Over Patents

Apple Witness Claims Samsung Abused Its ‘Monopoly’ Over Patents | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it
Samsung Electronics Co. used
“monopoly power” to make exorbitant licensing demands of Apple
Inc. over two patents the South Korean company accuses the
iPhone maker of infringing, a witness told a jury.

 

Samsung Electronics Co. (005930) used “monopoly power” to make exorbitant licensing demands of Apple Inc. (AAPL) over two patents the South Korean company accuses the iPhone maker of infringing, a witness told a jury.

Janusz Ordover, a New York University economics professor, said Samsung “distorted” the process through which a standard- setting body in Europe set industry requirements based on its wireless-technology patents. Ordover testified yesterday at the end of a three-week long intellectual-property trial in San Jose, California.

Ordover, hired by Apple as an expert witness, said Samsung “acted in a way that evidences it has gained monopoly power by making licensing demands to Apple that are inconsistent” with reduced licensing rates required of patents used by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute to set technological requirements.

Samsung has declared the patents “essential” and is seeking as much as $399 million in royalties from Apple for infringing them, according to court testimony. Apple has argued in court filings that Samsung can’t assert its claims on the two patents because it didn’t properly disclose them to the institute.

Testimony concluded yesterday at the trial. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh limited each side to 25 hours and Samsung told the court that it declined to cross-examine Ordover due to the time constraints. Koh said she aims to finish with jury instruction arguments by the end of Aug. 20 and to have the companies present closing arguments Aug. 21. Jury deliberations may begin later that day.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, sued Samsung in April 2011, accusing it of copying patented designs for mobile devices, and Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung countersued.

Four Continents

The case is the first to go before a federal jury in a battle being waged on four continents for dominance in a smartphone market valued by Bloomberg Industries at $219.1 billion.

Ordover said his conclusions relied on testimony from Michael Walker, former chairman of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, who was called by Apple as a witness. Samsung filed a Korean application for one of the two patents in April 2006, Walker said. It was required to disclose that application to the standard-setting body by early June 2005 and didn’t until May 16, 2006, Walker said.

“I concluded in both cases that they did not” make timely disclosures about the intellectual property, Walker said of Samsung.

Licensing Rate

Ordover said he was also drawing on testimony by former Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN) executive Richard Donaldson, who said a 2.4 percent licensing rate Samsung demanded of Apple for the patents didn’t comply with the “fair reasonable and non- discriminatory” rates required by patents used by the institute.

Under cross-examination by Samsung lawyer Charles Verhoeven, Walker agreed that he didn’t know if Samsung intentionally missed its patent disclosure deadlines.

Samsung also called a damages expert, David Teece of University of California, Berkeley’s business school, to refute Ordover’s claims.

Walker hasn’t done the “background work necessary” to conclude Samsung possesses monopoly power with its patents at issue, Teece said.

250 Days

Teece said he did a study of how long companies take to disclose their patents after ETSI adopts standards that may be covered by the intellectual property. He said Apple has taken as long as 250 days and other companies such as units of Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson (ERICB) and Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility Holdings unit may take weeks, months and sometimes years to make their disclosures.

The 2.4 percent licensing rate Samsung offered Apple for the patents was “in the range of rates that I’ve observed from other companies,” Teece said.

The case is Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., 11- cv-01846, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).

iPhone 5 vs LG optimus 4x hd comparing Apple iPhone5 with Lg optimus 4x hd features ram processor camera quality application support size...

 

Gone are days when you use your mobile phone only to make calls and send and receive SMS to and from your contacts. Now, mobile phones are getting smarter than ever. They can have extended features through apps easily accessible and installed from the online market. We use smart phones not only for playing games but also for surfing the web, reading eBooks, listening to music, organizing task lists and locating an address among others. Tons of smartphones have boomed in these past years, and prepare again to be mesmerized by two of them. In this article, we will tackle a standoff between the soon-to-be-launched iPhone 5 and LG Optimus 4X HD    Review Items    1. Processor Specifications Rumor has it that the iPhone 5 will be fitted with an A6 quad core processor with a speed of up to 2.0 gigahertz. This quality performance speed upgrade is not only expected to improve the response speed of the smartphone. Also, it will enhance the battery life now that it would have four processors to use up. In comparison, LG's Optimus 4X HD is equipped with a quad core Cortex-A9 setup clocked at 1.5 gigahertz. This configuration is based on Nvidia's Tegra 3 chipset with a Geforce ULP GPU. Both devices are blisteringly fast, giving users a smooth experience in handling apps even heavy on graphics and multimedia. 
2. Operating System The Apple iPhone 5 may most probably run with the latest software, the iOS6, featuring a fourth-generation long-term evolution to give a speedier mobile internet connectivity and data transfer rate. Advantages for users are clearer and crisper voice and video calls. This updated operating system may as well incorporate 3D imaging capabilities, giving more excitement to users. Not quite matching for equivalence is version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS of the Optimus 4X HD. LG’s contender runs on this latest version of Google's Android. Expectation is that it will have greater stability and will inhabit an additional strong point which is the quick-app switcher control for multi-tasking.    3. Design The iPhone 5 will have a four-inch screen size display, while the LG Optimus 4X HD has a bigger screen size of 4.7-inch. Its large size does not entail to the device being better. On the contrary, users who are not used to holding bigger phones in one hand may protest for its bulkiness. Guys who don’t carry bags but put their handheld devices in their jeans pockets might be forced to carry a pouch for it. It is still unsure if the iPhone will be clad in a curvaceous or boxed outer design. However, its measurements would most likely be 122.4 x 64.3 x 8.6 MM and its weight would be 144.6 grams. LG’s handset will have rounded edges and a minimalistic textured back panel, measuring at 131.8 x 68.3 x 9.7 MM and weighing about 145 grams.  
4. Camera The two smartphones here each has great camera specifications. They both have an astounding 8 MP back-illuminated sensor with a 3264 x 2448 pixel resolution, LED flash. The camera is capable of geographical tags, autofocus of the subject with touch, and face and smile detection capacity. Apart from this, they also have a secondary camera for the video calls. The iPhone 5 wins in this round for its 5MP front-facing camera versus LG Optimus 4X HD’s 1.3MP camera.    5. Memory Storage The LG Optimus 4X HD and iPhone 5 both are capable of holding up to 1 GB of RAM. The LG smartphone is limited to having only one model with 16 GB internal memory, while the iPhone 5 will have three assortments: 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. The LG device compensates its loss as it can accommodate a micro SD cards that can support up to 32GB of memory.    Verdict Smartphones have taken all over the world by storm. People of all ages are eagerly anticipating for their next releases and speculating over the upgraded specifications and enhancement constantly. In the world of technology, the brand and model ruling over the market cannot be pretty much assumed because innovations and creativity in the advancement of features can go extremes. Based on these review items though, the iPhone 5 indisputably wins.

The Guide To Search: Why Social & Mobile Are The Future

The Guide To Search: Why Social & Mobile Are The Future | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it

With Social Media developing at a rapid pace and search engines becoming smarter, the emergence of social search was expected to be the next big thing.

 

Search is currently in a transition period right now. As algorithms become more complex and the major search engines introduce new features, it’s clear that our expectations about how search should work and what it can do for us has risen with every new development. It’s not enough that it just suggests relevant information.

 

Now we demand that it comes faster, becomes more accurate and matches our tastes and interests.

 

Throw Siri and Google Now (or at least, the potential of Siri and Google Now) into the mix and the idea that the very concept of search will be radically different in three to five years time is a distinct possibility.

 

Social search was seen as the next step in this process. Using our profiles to filter and curate the content we want to see, the results have been mixed. Google’s insistence on using Google+ and its +1 system has been criticised because it neglects the more popular social media sites to plug its own.

 

On the other hand, Bing has struggled to even dent Google’s hold on search, despite championing its social search feature – partly because Microsoft has a stake in Facebook. Throw in the massive rise of mobile search, and the concept of search is evolving in a way that we mightn’t have expected.

 

One thing is certain: With more and more content being created online, a new way of curating and processing the vast waves of information out there will necessity. With Google making small changes to search – both on desktop and mobile – and Bing pushing its social credentials even further, the race is on to see who can discover (or possibly stumble) upon the next stage of search.

What is an iPhone

What is an iPhone?

These days there are so many phones out on the market it is hard to keep up with them. When thinking of these phones a couple have stood the test of time! Android‘s, iPhone‘s, and Samsung seem to be the major three in regards to Smartphones. Who knows exactly which phone is better because each of them market to different genres. iPhone’s seem to be the most popular smartphone on the market today. With the speculation that Apple could sell more than 170 million iPhone 5′s in the first year! So, for that older generation out there you may be asking yourself, what is an iPhone?

iPhones are classified as smartphones “A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic ‘feature phone’.” iPhones have been on the cutting edge of this industry since 2007. Apple has been very intuitive with what consumers are looking for! Since 2007 many companies have tried to duplicate and copy the iPhone, but Apple keeps coming out with ingenious designs and ideas that simply cant be copied. The iPhone also offers a lot of software functions competitors cannot. With the ability to sync up with your MacBookPro and the new iCould. It allows you to download many apps to help your everyday life. Its basically a secretary in your pocket. Kids also love the iPhones because they can call and text their friends as well as listen to their music they purchase. Many apps that the younger generation enjoys have been incorporated into the iPhone through the App store. When your kid is on the computer majority of the time they are probably on a social media site. The iPhone now has the ability to allow easy access to these social media platforms. Kids spend hours upon hours on these platforms. The iPhone was also one of the first phones to place a camera into the phone. Having a camera built into your phone that takes quality pictures is always nice. Also this is very convenient not having to buy a camera and a phone and lug two devices with you wherever you go! Many companies are also banking off the iPhone. Companies like “InstaGram” sold their company for a billion dollars because it took off with the youth! This application allows the user to adjust and modify the pictures taken on the device and share them through Instagram or other social media platforms. Not only is the phone a huge social media outlet it also has a lot of functionality. “Maps” on the phone allows your to get turn by turn directions to your destination. It has a calendar with reminders so you can set doctor appointments, special events etc. The phone has so many different functionalities for different ages! Anyone can use the iPhones they are pretty simple devices set up for the user!

The birth of the iPhone should be traced to September 7 2005. When Apple and motorola paired up and released the ROKR E1. However Apple was not satisfied with this device and believed they could do better. Since they had to compromise with Motorola Apple could not create the device to their desires. January 9, 2007 Steve Jobs announced the iPhone at the MacWorld Convention, on June 11, 2007 it was released. From that point on Apple has been creating and perfecting the iPhone. After the iPhone 2g came the iPhone 3g onto the 3gs. After these phones Apple came up with a perfect design! The iPhone 4 the sleek and narrow design seemed to pop out at every user! After the 4 came the 4s the phone many are using today! There is a lot of speculation as when the iPhone 5 will be dropped. Many believe it to be sometime in september. However here at iBroke we seem to think they would release it October 5, 2012. This was the date of Steve Jobs death and we believe Apple will honor him with the release of this incredible phone! Who knows exactly when this phone will be released and what amazing new technology it will bring with it!

So In short, iPhones are more than just phones! They allow you to have the convenience of the world at your finger tips! Being able to surf the world wide web on a hand held device is insane! Or being able to talk to your family via face-time thats half way around the world! Apple never ceases to amaze its clients and keep them satisfied and coming back for more! If anyone is considering buying an iPhone we highly suggest it! If you ever have any problems with your iPhone, iPads, iTouch’s, or iPods simply send them to us at www.myibroke.com
