For the sake of genuine competition, let’s hope that Google’s Project Fi (Wireless Service) shakes-up America’s (essentially) Telecommunications duopoly!
Two researchers have reportedly discovered a way to capture identification data for Samsung’s S5 fingerprint recognition software via hacking the handsets’ memory… just another day in the never-ending saga of ‘the-more-humanity-becomes-tech-dependent-the-greater-the-level-of-hacking-possibilities.’
Google’s latest launch demonstrates once again how powerful technology is towards making borders transparent… Inside Abbey Road: http://goo.gl/fPBni3
Google’s purge of 200 bad (i.e., ads / malware, etc.) Chrome-extensions raises at least one question – what took the firm so long to act?
