11/30/2013, If you use any of the Google Nexus devices, like the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, or Nexus 5, it seems that there is a bug/exploit floating out there that has the ability to either reboot your phone, disable your network connection temporarily, or crash your messaging app. This is due to a flood of Class 0 SMS messages that are being sent to your phone, which we guess sounds familiar […]
11/10/2013, There is nothing quite like having a new version of the mobile operating system installed on your smartphone, as you take advantage of the latest features and functions introduced by the developers themselves. Unfortunately for the masses, this would mean that you would often need to have newer hardware in order to run the most recent version of the operating system. For those who are running on iOS 7.0.3, you […]
12/02/2011, The iOS 5.1 beta was seeded to developers not too long ago. Many had expected the update to address the battery draining issues that quite a few iOS owners were experiencing, but as it turns out that is not the case as there are still reports from those on the beta that the battery draining problem is still present.
12/02/2011, Just yesterday we reported that there were some complaints regarding the HTC Rezound. A quick recap for those who may not have been aware – there were complaints that suggested interference or static when listening to music or audio while using headphones together with the HTC Rezound. While there are indeed complaints from several HTC Rezound owners, the problem appears to be less widespread than what was initially thought. According […]
12/01/2011, One of the interesting features (and probably more advertised) of the HTC Rezound is its Beats Audio integration. With HTC purchasing a major stake in the audio company, it was only natural that they would include the technology along with a pair of Beats headphones to be used along with the phone. While initial impressions of the phone (based on reviews) remained somewhat good, it appears that there are growing […]
11/21/2011, While those living in Europe may have gotten their hands on the Galaxy Nexus before those of us in the states, it seems that their joy may be short lived as a recent audio bug has popped up affecting those in Europe on the GSM 900MHz band. The problem here seems to be that the handset’s volume control has gotten a mind of its own, as it jumps back and […]
10/25/2011, For those living in the UK and who may have purchased a Jaguar X-Type, if you did not already receive a letter from the company, you should probably be aware that the company has been busy recalling about 17,600 vehicles in the UK. This is apparently due to the cruise control software that affects X-Type models from 2006 to 2010 with diesel engines.
09/30/2011, If you’re a HTC Thunderbolt owner who was looking forward to the Android Gingerbread 2.3 update for your device, it looks like you’re in for bad news, or good news depending on how you look at it. It appears that the Gingerbread update that has been rolled out to several Thunderbolt owners have been reported to be rather buggy, thus causing Verizon to suspend the update for now.
08/30/2011, The Google Nexus S device has been plagued with the voice search bug since April, but little to nothing has been done to address the issue, leaving Nexus S owners frustrated, but it appears that Google has finally got around to fixing the issue and will be releasing the fix some time this week.
08/10/2011, Back in the day, and by that I mean 20 years ago, Microsoft was plagued by a bug known as the “ping of death” that when exploited by a third party, would cause the all too familiar “blue screen of death” (BSOD). Given that Microsoft patched the original exploit back then, we’re guessing that the latest patch from Microsoft has patched up a newer variant of the bug.
07/29/2011, Facebook has just launched a new bug bounty program where it rewards researchers who find security holes in the social network. The reward will be paid in dollars, which starts off at $500 and has no maximum set. However, they will have to follow Facebook’s Responsible Disclosure Policy and agree not to go public with the vulnerability information until Facebook has fixed the problem. I guess this is a great […]
07/17/2011, Toshiba’s entry into the tablet market comes in the form of the Thrive, and while it looks great on paper as well as boasting more than decent hardware, the software bit is what bothers most people, ruining what could be a potentially enjoyable tablet experience. It seems that owners of the Toshiba Thrive experience sleep and reboot issues, where said device more often than not refuses to awake from its […]
04/12/2011, Last week we reported that there will be a massive Windows 7 patch arriving today, and according to reports online, it will be arriving on time. Starting 1pm ET today, Microsoft will be releasing 17 security bulletins that will fix 64 different vulnerabilities in Windows, Internet Explorer, Office and Visual Studio. It has been reported by a security expert who wished to remain anonymous, that at least half of the […]
