According to a new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will introduce a standard 9.7-inch iPad model on March 27 that supports the $99 Apple Pencil.

The new 9.7-inch iPad give Apple a boost in Pencil sales and Kuo predicts Apple Pencil shipments will double this year to up to 10 million sales this year. KGI’s report serves to give investors clues at which part makers will benefit from increased Apple Pencil sales, but it is the first report in which the analyst makes this claim, albeit without committing firmly.

According to a recent report, Best Buy has "ceased ordering" new Huawei smartphones, likely due to the same government pressure that caused AT&T and Verizon to cancel their carrier deals.

The report from CNET further adds that Best Buy was the one who made the call to end its partnership with the Chinese smartphone maker. The chain has allegedly stopped ordering new smartphones from Huawei and will cease sales in the next few weeks.

The move comes several weeks after AT&T and Verizon were said to have ditched Huawei phones under pressure from the American government, which is concerned that Huawei might use its devices to spy on behalf of China. There was a 2012 report accusing Huawei and ZTE of making devices that could pose a security threat, but it never mentioned smartphones and has never been supplemented with definitive evidence.

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is developing its own MicroLED displays in a secret manufacturing facility in Santa Clara, California. The report further adds that Apple is making "a significant investment" in the development of MicroLED displays as a potential replacement for OLED panels currently supplied by Samsung.

> The technology giant is making a significant investment in the development of next-generation MicroLED screens, say the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal planning. MicroLED screens use different light-emitting compounds than the current OLED displays and promise to make future gadgets slimmer, brighter and less power-hungry.

The MicroLED initiative is said to be code-named T159 and headed by Lynn Youngs, a long-time Apple employee who worked on displays for the original iPhone and iPad, currently working on Apple Watch screen technology.

The secret facility being used from Apple is located in Santa Clara, California and features about 300 engineers designing the screens.

Samsung is finally starting to roll out Android Oreo update to the Samsung Galaxy Note8. The update is currently rolling out in France and a French user has reported seeing the firmware and it is not a beta release that had been doing the rounds for the US variants in the last couple of months.

Seeing that Android 8.0 Oreo was released back in August last year and that the first Android P Developer Preview was made available earlier this month, Samsung is certainly late to the party when it comes to updating its flagship smartphones. The consumer electronics giant's other flagship smartphone series, consisting of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, only started receiving its update in early February, and that rollout was paused due to 'unexpected reboot' issues before being resumed in late February.

The Oreo update changes the Galaxy Note 8's firmware number to N950FXXU3CRC1, and it comes with the latest March 2018 security patch as well as Samsung Experience 9.0. The latest Samsung Experience has an improved keyboard, better search - Finder gains search cards for contacts, settings, files as well as results from the Galaxy and Play stores - new Bixby briefing and much more.

Today, Mozilla has released an important update (version 58.0.1) for its Firefox web browser to patch a critical vulnerability. The exploit is found in Firefox's user interface code and it could allow remote attackers to execute malicious code on computers running an affected version of the browser.

Mozilla has made major design and code changes in Firefox version 57, otherwise known as Firefox Quantum. These changes made Firefox faster, and less memory hungry, while bringing support for multiprocess, improved graphics engine and webpage renderer and more. However, the change also introduced a flaw that is hidden in the browser's user interface code that made it possible to for an attacker to run unsanitized HTML on a user's computer.

The exploit took advantage of Firefox's Chrome UI component, which was not properly sandboxed, allowing potentially malicious code to make its way over to the browser itself and run commands there or on the host computer.

The common belief is that Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S9 handset at Mobile World Congress next month. With official invites for a February 25th event going out earlier this week, we are seeing a lot of information leaked about both Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. This Friday, Evan Blass, the well-known and reliable leaker, posted on VentureBeat our latest look at Samsung’s upcoming flagship.

As expected, this year’s iteration looks a lot like the Galaxy S8. Samsung did a major redesign last year, so we were expecting a phone that more or less looks the same. However, at first glance, the bezels on this device appear a fair bit larger. Thankfully, though, this is probably just due to this picture, as it does not account for the curved glass along the sides that hides excess bezel.

According to a recent report, Samsung may soon face increased competition from LG and Sharp as the sole OLED panel supplier for Apple iPhones this year.

Samsung is currently Apple’s sole OLED panel supplier for the iPhone X, as the company was the only one able to meet the exacting standards set for the display at the time, but it already seems clear that LG will be a second supplier. Reports in September claimed LG is aiming for full OLED production capacity in 2019, with small batches potentially available by the end of 2018.

Citing industry sources, the report also claims that Sharp, now owned by Foxconn, will start producing OLED panels from the second quarter of this year. The sources cited Japan-based media reports to suggest Sharp could become an OLED supplier to Apple as early as the second quarter of 2018.

7 Best Password Managers - Prime Inspiration

7 Best Password Managers - Prime Inspiration | Smartcellphones | Scoop.it
A password manager strengthens your security by encrypting and storing your passwords in a secured vault that is protected by a master password. We have evaluated dozens of password managers to help you choose the one that suits you best.

Password managers are becoming more and more popular. With a password manager, you will not need to remember a unique, long, complex password for each of your online accounts. The password manager will remember each password for you, strengthening your security and minimizing your risk the next time there is a massive data breach.

The best password managers then encrypt and store these passwords in a secured vault that is protected by a master password, meaning you only have to remember one password. The ability to keep all of your passwords in one spot is highly appealing.

Although several browsers offer similar functionality out of the box, the best password managers typically offer several benefits over the built-in browser functionality – including encryption, cross-platform and cross-browser synchronization, mobile device support, secure sharing of credentials, generate strong and unique passwords, and support for multi-factor authentication.

In some cases, usernames and passwords must be copied from the password manager into the browser, reducing the ease of use but increasing the level of security by requiring entry of the master password before accessing stored login information. Some top password managers store your credentials locally, while others rely on cloud services for storage and synchronization, and still, others take a hybrid approach.

There are tons of password managers on PC, Mac, and mobile. All of them come with features designed to improve your security across the board while offering their own kind of security to protect your data. We have evaluated dozens of password managers to help you choose the one that suits you best.

So without further ado, here are some of the best password manager apps available for your PCs and mobile.

According to a new security report, Ad targeters are pulling your emails and other details by exploiting a loophole in your browser’s password manager. It is not only your browser’s built-in password manager that is affected but also third-party password manager add-ons for your browser like LastPass and 1Password.

The report from Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy, claims that third-party scripts have been caught exploiting browser login managers to extract user information from websites for the purpose of tracking Web activity.

The researchers examined two different scripts – AdThink and OnAudience – both of are designed to get identifiable information out of browser-based password managers. Here is how it works:

First, the user fills up login credentials on a certain website and asks the browser to save the information to its login managers. Once the user shifts to another page on the website, these scripts insert an invisible form, which then automatically gets filled by the embedded password manager. That information can then be used as a persistent ID to track users from page to page, a potentially valuable tool in targeting advertising.

According to a report from TechInsights, Galaxy S9+ costs Samsung $379 to manufacture, which is $10 more than Note 8 and $10.50 less than iPhone X.

As always, Samsung seems to be settling for a considerably slimmer flagship margin than its arch-rival Apple by investing an estimated $379 into the making of each Galaxy S9+ unit that has then sold at a starting unlocked price of $840.

As we can see from the chart the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is Samsung’s most expensive smartphone to make so far, the only other handset that costs more to manufacture is Apple iPhone X. Of course, none of these prices are official since we are sure that neither Samsung nor Apple will be publicly disclosing their costs.

Samsung has not revealed whether AI is built directly into the chip design or if it is merely better optimized for handling AI tasks. The company identifies “realistic face-tracking filters as well as stronger security when unlocking a device with one’s face” is a major advantage. In other words, the company is leveraging neural networks to improve its deep learning algorithms, which means the Exynos 9810 will be better at recognizing people or specific elements in photos. The technology will be used for depth sensing to scan a user’s face in 3D, enabling “hybrid face detection.”
