Photos on iPhone may be at risk for security breach

February 29, 2012 · Posted in Techy News and Tips · Comments Off on Photos on iPhone may be at risk for security breach 

The private photos on your phone may not be as private as you think.

Developers of applications for Apple’s mobile devices, along with Apple itself, came under scrutiny this month after reports that some apps were taking people’s address book information without their knowledge.

As it turns out, address books are not the only things up for grabs. Photos are also vulnerable. After a user allows an application on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to have access to location information, the app can copy the user’s entire photo library without any further notification or warning, according to app developers.

It is unclear whether any apps in Apple’s App Store are illicitly copying user photos. Although Apple’s rules do not specifically forbid photo copying, Apple says it screens all apps submitted to the store, a process that should catch nefarious behavior on the part of developers.

But copying address book data was against Apple’s rules, and the company approved many popular apps that collected that information.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment. If you are stupid enough to buy an Apple product, who cares about your security!!!

Microsoft Gambling $100 Bills on WP7 Speed Tests in Vegas

January 11, 2012 · Posted in Techy News and Tips · Comments Off on Microsoft Gambling $100 Bills on WP7 Speed Tests in Vegas 

Microsoft’s Ben Rudolph is in Vegas this week, waving around a stack of $100 bills and bragging about how fast his Windows Phones are. Specifically, he’s betting that his phone can beat your phone in a head-to-head speed challenge. There doesn’t seem to be any specific app or test for the challenge — Rudolph says that he and the challenger will make the call based on what they do on their phone every day. If the Windows Phone can’t beat your Android, iOS or other device, he’ll give you a hundred bucks. However, if you lose, you have to go on camera and admit your phone got smoked by a Windows Phone, which might be difficult for diehard Android or iPhone fans to admit.
