Google taken to Court by Its Users

Google has tried hard to avoid the privacy law suit but it did not make it. Its appeal was rejected on the 22nd of July 2014. As a consequence, Google has to face in court Android users who have used the giant web browser to download applications. The plaintiffs accused Google of fraud and of not respecting the contract terms. Google was also accused of distributing the personal information of its users to various advertising agencies, in the absence of their consent.

The complaints coming from customers that no longer used Google services after the changes in customer policy are not taken into consideration.

On the first of March 2012, Google went through another law suit. The internet giant was accused of having altered its regulations concerning the privacy policies. Thus, the company made a single policy in which the users were announced that some of their personal date would be accessible to certain advertising agencies. The data were obtained through Gmail, YouTube and from Google Maps.

Numerous users were not comfortable with the idea and they accused the company of not treating customers properly. The users were not notified upon the changes and were not given a choice either. It was obvious that Google disclosed the information in order to obtain advertising revenues like many other companies. Due to these unorthodox practices Google managed to increase its advertising revenues with ninety per cent during the first quarter of 2012.

Customers felt very vulnerable because their personal data were made public. They did not like that their names, locations and emails addresses had been given without their previous consent to various advertising agencies.

Samsung’s Number One Positions in India threaten by Micromax

The Korean Company has managed to get the top position on the Indian market. This is quite a breath of fresh air since the company has experienced some troubles in both sales and revenues this year.

IDC report the Indian market has revealed that during the second financial quarter of the present year, the top seller was Samsung and not Micromax as claimed earlier by the Counterpoint Research.

The IDC report pointed out that Samsung had 17 per cent of the Indian smart phone market while Micromax had only 14 per cent. The third position was occupied by Nokia and its 10 per cent. Karbonn occupied the fourth position while the fifth belonged to Lava. The rest of the market share belonged to some other companies.

On the other hand the research done by Counterpoint has some different results. Thus, according to Counterpoint the first position on the Indian market belonged to Micromax, while the second to Samsung.

The Korean Company did not agree with the result of the Counterpoint research and expressed its opinion publicly. The company representatives claimed that Samsung was still the number one smart phone seller on the Indian market. The IDC report confirms the Samsung claims, but not one hundred per cent. It has to be pointed out that each firm uses different parameters in order to do market research. Therefore, figures have the tendency to vary from one company to another.

The Vice President of IDC South Asia pointed out that Samsung was still the leader of the Indian market but Micromax was growing a very rapid rate. This might led to Micromax topping Samsung during the next financial quarter.

IDC has also revealed that the Indian smart phone market has experienced an eighty-four per cent growth. During the second quarter of 2014 more than 63.21 million mobile units were sold in Indian stores. Out of this figure 18.42 million units were represented by the smart phones.

The report also revealed that the market was dominated by phones costing less than 200 US dollars. This can be translated into the low cost phones outnumbering luxury devices. The sales of Phablets represented 5.4 per cent of the smart phone sales and more than half of the Phablets sold cost less than 250 US dollars.

The top five list of smart phone vendors is the following: Samsung, Micromax, Karbonn, Lava and Motorola. The Korean company has twenty-nine per cent of the market and most of the sales were owed to the products having prices below 150 US dollars like the Galaxy S Duos and the Galaxy Star Pro. Eighteen per cent of the market belonged to Micromax and Karbonn had eight per cent. Lava managed to obtain six per cent and Motorola five per cent.

It is more than obvious from the report that the Indian customers are attracted by smart phones having prices below 200 US dollars. The IDC report also highlights the fact that Samsung has to work on its pricing policy since it can be topped by Micromax any time soon.

The third and the fourth financial quarters promise to be extremely interesting with Oppo and Xiaomi entering the battle for the conquest of the Indian market.

New Blackberry PGP 10 Encryption Released – Top Device Security

With everything going on in the world these days, it is hard to tell if everything you do is protected any longer. Some individuals have accepted this level of invasion as something that they do not care about, do not need to concern about, or simply cannot do anything to stop from occurring. This should not be the case. No one should involuntarily give up their right to privacy. Some people simply cannot allow it due of the delicate ideas that they work on.

Some government agencies have overstepped their limit in the eyes of many individuals, by overreaching in their scope of how much they go in obtaining data. The thing that has not been known is that government agencies may be stepping on the toes of other agencies, either government or non-government, who really survive by secrecy. Not everybody realizes what others is doing, nor should they in an perfect world. Barriers must be kept in place in certain situations.

Android and iPhones have proven to be untrustworthy when it comes to encryption email and data protection. These popular devices have been fairly limited to the level of toys when it comes to industrial or professional grade security against espionage at any level. No one knows where the compromise starts and ends with these platforms whose very hardware was born with the concept of offering access to those who demanded it from certain levels.

This is false with the Blackberry pgp encrypted phone. It doesn’t seem to be the serious target of any known or unidentified corporations at the hardware level. Regardless, it still requires strong security at the software level. Here is where PGP encryption software come. With this carefully manufactured and customized solution, people using Blackberry pgp phones with the pgp encryption software correctly installed or configured may have assurance again that their information is not accessible to anybody except the intended targets.

This is a huge advantage, and a relief to the business and private sector. Being able to shut out prying eyes and nosy ears is a advantage. Now, it is an affordable instrument that is accessible through only a select group. At the moment, the leader of this technology is a organization called TopPGP. They make their product accessible straight from their website. They are delivering internationally blackberry pgp encryption phones since 2004. This is a highly trusted and trusted company in the pgp encryption software industry.

Currently, it seems possible to take back your world, and send and get very sensitive classified information. Naturally, the government isn’t happy concerning this. They continue to push for laws opposing this type of software, openly acknowledging that they are powerless against it. What comes around goes around. In this world, you reap what you sew. Many will say that it is Karma. Still others, like Blackberry PGP Encrypted Phones, would say mind your personal business!

iPhone 6 about to go on Mass Production

There are high chances for Apple to start the mass production of the so much awaited iPhone 6. Most analysts believe that the new gadget is going to be released on the market towards the end of the month of September.

The fact the mass assembly of iPhone 6 is about to start has been suggested by some new Asian developers. The first sign has come from a company named Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company which at the end of July had revenue of 2.16 billion US dollars. The sum was made public after the Taiwanese company had managed to deliver a bulk shipment consisting in A8 chips. These chips are said to be part of the new iPhone 6.

DigiTime claims that its anonymous sources from inside TSMC declared that the Taiwanese company would continue its ascendance in the months to come.  The company owes its growth to the massive production of 20 nm items. These items are in fact the 64 bit A8 CPU.

It is assumed that the TSMC revenue figures will increase with 20% during the last month of 2014. This will be owed to Apple starting its mass production of iPhone 6. It has been forecasted that by the end of the year about eighty millions units of iPhone 6 gadgets will hit the stores. All these new devices will be powered by the A8 processor producers by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. There are also rumors that the American company will use the A9 chips for its 2015 iPhones and iPads. The A9 chips will be probably produced by TSMC in collaboration with Samsung.

The most important components of iPhone 6 started to arrive at the Apple assembly factories located on the Chinese territories in early July. In the meanwhile, at Foxconn (the most important iPhone 6 manufacturer) has gone through some changes. DigiTimes claims that Foxconn has started to make various adjustments in its production lines so as to increase the efficiency of its equipment. All these come to confirm the idea that Apple has already started its mass production of iPhone 6.

The DigiTime reports highlighted that the changes will need some time in order to arrive at the maximum efficiency points. This suggests that the assembly of the next generation iPhone could start in the month of August. The Taiwanese publication claims that the proof of Foxconn becoming a manufacturer of iPhone 6 can be traced in the fact that the gadget manufacturer underwent a drop in its revenues. This was caused by the fact that the delivery of consumer electronic items decreased visibly.

However, by the end of the year Foxconn will be back on track since more than 100 million iPhone gadgets are going to be produced. The figure includes iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C as well.

The iPhone 6 is estimated to arrive by the end of the month of September. There are rumors that the smaller version, having a screen of 4.7 inch will hit the markets first. However, a lot depends on whether Foxconn has actually started to assemble the device.
