Will The Large Screen iPad Pro Be Apple's First In A Line Of Desktop Touch Devices? | Tablets POS Retail Self-Service | Scoop.it
The popularity of the iPad could finally be paving the way for the redefinition of the desktop computer as a touch device.

Craig Allen Keefner's insight:

Chromebooks hit their stride during Holiday season and appears Apple and Google are battling for new ground. Microsoft is still in the game but seems to suffer from "Early to the game, but late to finish" for some reason.

Tablet POS - AbaddonPOS malware preys on retail POS software

Tablet POS - AbaddonPOS malware preys on retail POS software | Tablets POS Retail Self-Service | Scoop.it
Point-of-sale (POS) malware is still a clear and present danger, say Proofpoint researchers.
Craig Allen Keefner's insight:

While ransomware is garnering the majority of headlines these days, point-of-sale (POS) malware is still a clear and present danger, according to researchers at Proofpoint.

 

In fact, the researchers report, cybercriminals are intensifying their efforts to exploit the rollout in the U.S. of chip-and-PIN cards by deploying malware as a vital tool for stolen credit card data and ill-gotten gain.

 

A new assault the firm has been tracking attempts to install TinyLoader and AbaddonPOS point-of-sale malware, which is delivered via an email campaign specifically geared to retail operations and which is highly personalized (the recipient's name appears in the message). Plus, the message contains a seductive lure, an image of a spinner one expects to see when content is loading. A message asks the recipient to enable content by clicking on it. Once a user clicks, the malicious macro is delivered.

 

At that point, various C&C servers are contacted which deliver a new, more evolved variant of AbaddonPOS, capable of testing various blacklist/whitelist implementations and changing methods in the way pilfered credit card data is siphoned.

How Android-x86 and Remix OS are Creating Better Android Tablets

How Android-x86 and Remix OS are Creating Better Android Tablets | Tablets POS Retail Self-Service | Scoop.it
Thanks to current developments from Android-x86 and Remix OS, your hybrid tablet can now run Android. How does this affect the tablet landscape?
Craig Allen Keefner's insight:

Because of this, Microsoft inadvertently built the best Android tablet hardware, in part because there is no such thing as “Android-only Hardware”. Android-x86 and Remix are bringing the Android experience to all sorts of computers, including full tower-desktops, laptops, ultrabooks, and of course, hybrid tablets. This last point is the most interesting one, I think, because of the hardware involved. If we look at tablet hybrids, they typically pack substantially more RAM than Android tablets do, and some flavors come with very-powerful x86 processors. I personally own a Surface Pro 3 with an i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, which is more than enough for a semi-desktop experience on-the-go and the things I bought this for (work and school). But when I boot into Android, the device feels even more versatile.

Moki & Mimo Create New Opportunities for Commercial Grade Tablet-Based Kiosk Solutions

Moki & Mimo Create New Opportunities for Commercial Grade Tablet-Based Kiosk Solutions | Tablets POS Retail Self-Service | Scoop.it

Moki(R) and Mimo Display(R) to Create New Opportunities for Tablet-Based Kiosk Solutions in Commerce.

Craig Allen Keefner's insight:

Moki, the leader in cloud-native management and control for tablet-based commerce solutions, announced today a strategic partnership with Mimo Monitors (Mimo Display, LLC). Headquartered in Princeton, NJ, Mimo Monitors produces affordable commercial-grade, Android™-based tablet devices and related POS peripherals, such as 2d barcode scanners, and credit card readers, etc., that come deployment ready with VESA-mountable displays.


This new partnership will combine Moki's tablet-based kiosk control capabilities and Mimo's robust devices to provide those in the retail and corporate spaces an affordable and fully-managed commercial-grade option for deploying large fleets of tablet-based kiosks and displays. Rather than turning a consumer grade tablet running iOS, Windows or Android into a tablet kiosk using enclosures, retailers can now purchase a low-cost device that is purpose-built to withstand the day-to-day rigors demanded from a tablet-based kiosk or display in a retail or other setting. Customers can also expect a managed hardware and software refresh cycle to allow for long term deployments.
