App-bouwers moeten nú naar beveiliging kijken

Wat heeft de sector toch een slecht geheugen als het op beveiliging aankomt. Het lijkt wel of we niets geleerd hebben van het pc-tijdperk en er wordt opnieuw te weinig aandacht besteed aan beveiliging. Daar zal uiteindelijk het verdienmodel van mobiele applicaties onder lijden.

Geschiedenis herhaalt zich


Jarenlang voegde Microsoft in de jaren 80 en 90 features toe zonder goed stil te staan bij security. Toen internet opeens groot werd halverwege de jaren 90, waren alle ontstane kwetsbaarheden opeens toegankelijk via een netwerkverbinding. Microsoft moest vervolgens een decennium lang gaten dichten en nieuwe features toevoegen om malware te bestrijden en dat heeft de reputatie van het bedrijf in IT-kringen geen goed gedaan.

En nu herhaalt de geschiedenis zich in het mobiele tijdperk. HP analyseerde onlangs 2100 apps voor iOS van vooraanstaande bedrijven en vond in negen van de tien gevallen kwetsbaarheden. De meest voorkomende problemen waren het opslaan van onversleutelde data op het toestel, het gebruik van onveilige protocollen om gegevens te verzenden en het niet toepassen van simpele stappen in het ontwikkelproces om reverse engineering tegen te gaan.

Nog niet afrekend op onveiligheid

Vooral die laatste onachtzaamheid zorgt ervoor dat hackers manieren vinden om gaten te schieten in de apps, waardoor ze bijvoorbeeld namaakversies kunnen inzetten om malware te verspreiden. HP keek alleen maar naar iOS-apps, maar volgens het bedrijf is het net zo’n groot probleem bij Android.

De beveiliging is zo’n ondergeschoven kindje bij app-ontwikkelaars omdat opdrachtgevers het belangrijk vinden dat apps snel bij klanten terechtkomen,Galaxy S5 hoesjes. Een aanvullend probleem is dat er te weinig kennis is over best practices bij de ontwikkeling en daar zal nooit goed over worden nagedacht zolang snelheid de eerste prioriteit heeft.

Ontwikkelaars worden nu nog niet zwaar afgerekend op slordige beveiliging omdat er nog nooit een grote mobiele virusramp is geweest. Problemen doen zich vooral voor in Azië en in gerichte aanvallen op grote bedrijven. Maar net als in de jaren 80 wordt het gevaar genegeerd omdat de besmettingsratio zo laag is,Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hoesjes. Dat zal niet altijd zo blijven.

Op de volgende pagina: Het is een kwestie van tijd voor kwetsbaarheden in apps gaten in mobiele platforms openbreken en dan is het te laat.

New Pebble developer tools allow smart watch apps to talk to iPhone apps

The Pebble smart watch development kit was updated on Thursday to allow two-way communication between watch and phone apps, along with a new sports API for tracking exercise.

The newly updated PebbleKit allows communication between watch applications on the Pebble and those that reside on a smartphone running Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android. « Watchapps » can be built to receive weather or traffic information, act as remote controls for a phone or Internet-connected device, or even display bitcoin prices.

Pebble Menu

In addition, the new Pebble Sports API is now available for all developers to utilize. Its functionality can already be found in the iPhone app for Runkeeper, which was updated last week, as well as FreeCaddie, a GPS golf rangefinder.

The company behind the watch also announced that it has secured $15 million in venture capital funding, which it says will « be used to grow the software engineering team, expand Pebble’s open development platform and scale to meet customer demand. » Pebble gained considerable attention last year when the project earned more than $10 million in crowdsourced public funding on Kickstarter.

« The tremendous response we received from Kickstarter backers validated our belief in the value of a smart watch as a wearable computer,iphone cases, but also in the value an open platform brings to truly personalizing the watch to their daily activities », said Eric Migicovsky, Pebble’s founder. « This new investment will help us build out the Pebble development ecosystem and deliver on Pebble’s extraordinary potential. »

Pebble’s SDK was first released in April, allowing developers to create custom watch faces and games. But with Thursday’s update, applications on the iPhone or Android handsets can be written to communicate with the Pebble and relay information to users.

Over 8,000 developers have downloaded the Pebble SDK, resulting in more than 5,000 unique watch applications and 300,000 app installs in just over a month. Users can find content at community websites such as mypebblefaces.com, forums.getpebble.com, and watchface-generator.de.

The smart watch space has been heating up with options like the Pebble, MetaWatch,iPhone 5c case nz, I’m Watch, Sony Smartwatch and others now available. Rumors have suggested that Apple is secretly working on a so-called « iWatch, » while reports have claimed Google, Samsung, Microsoft and LG are also said to be working on wrist-worn hardware accessories.

Total War Rome 2 le trailer de la prochaine extension est arrivé !

SEGA pourrait doucement se reposer sur ses lauriers, puisque la firme a annoncé que Total War : Rome 2 est l’épisode le plus vendu de la franchise. Mais le repos peut attendre, car les joueurs eux, ne se reposent pas. C’est un trailer pour le second DLC du titre, Hannibal aux portes, qui est aujourd’hui révélé.

Attention, Rome, Hannibal est à tes portes

Le 1er DLC, qui porte le nom doux nom de César a la Gaule César en Gaule, avait plutôt bien marché,Housses iPhone 4, même si des critiques concernant le blocage de contenu déjà présent dans le jeu avaient été entendues.

Dans cette seconde extension, il sera possible d’incarner Hannibal, le légendaire général qui a fait trembler Rome jusque dans ses fondations, et qui fut l’un des ennemis les plus coriaces de l’Empire Romain (occuper Rome pendant une quinzaine d’années, ce n’est pas rien). On va donc avoir droit à une nouvelle campagne, qui commencera au début de la Seconde Guerre Punique, avec le choc des titans de l’époque, Rome et Carthage.

trailer-dlc-rome-total-war-2-hannibal-at-the-gates

Trois nouvelles factions vont également voire le jour : Syracuse, les Arevaci et les Lusitaniens. Autres changements, Rome et Carthage vont voir leur arbre technologique remanié. Ces derniers devraient être plus orientés vers la diplomatie.

En attendant la sortie du DLC, qui sortira le 27 mars au prix de 14,99 euros (il est cher mon DLC,étui samsung Galaxy S3, il est cher !), on vous conseille de préparer les lances anti-éléphants ou des manteaux de fourrure pour traverser les Alpes. Un seul côté sortira vainqueur, après tout !

La NASA vuole catturare un asteroide e portarlo sulla Luna

Catturare un asteroide e spostarlo in orbita intorno alla Luna: è questo il piano ambizioso della NASA, che secondo il responsabile Charles Bolden costituirebbe il primo passo verso la colonizzazione di Marte. I motivi sono molteplici, come spiega il capo dell'agenzia spaziale statunitense.

Innanzi tutto una missione del genere è un passo importante per testare i sistemi di propulsione e altre tecnologie che potrebbero aiutarci ad arrivare su Marte. Inoltre sarebbe un'occasione per raccogliere maggiori informazioni sul sistema solare primordiale (che si celano appunto negli asteroidi,Custodia Galaxy S5, oltre che nelle comete), oltre che per sperimentare tecniche di estrazione di materiali dagli asteroidi.

Al lavoro su un asteroide

Bolden sottolinea che nonostante la missione sia ambiziosa, il focus deve rimanere Marte, e la cattura di un asteroide si riduce a un banale passaggio intermedio. La curiosità però non si smorza. Gli scienziati della NASA hanno già  individuato alcuni asteroidi che potrebbero essere catturati e trascinati in un'orbita stabile intorno alla Luna. La prima opzione al vaglio è quella di staccare un masso da un grande asteroide e trasportarlo nell'orbita desiderata.

L'alternativa è quella di prendere di mira un asteroide che sia gi&agrave,Custodie Samsung Galaxy S4; di piccole dimensioni, prenderlo "al lazo" e depositarlo nell'orbita stabile. Solo dirlo sembra fantascienza, probabilmente metterlo in pratica creerà più problemi di quanti non se ne vogliano ammettere.

In ogni caso la missione è in programma entro il 2025. Uno dei candidati per i primi test potrebbe essere la capsula Orion, che farà il primo test di volo entro fine anno e dovrebbe partire per il primo volo con equipaggio nel 2021. Qualcuno vuole salire a bordo?

Droid Maxx by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)

Droid Maxx by Motorola (Verizon Wireless) height="245" title="Droid Maxx by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)"/>

MSRP

$299.99

  • Pros

    Excellent build quality. Long talk time. Adequate storage. Quick camera launch feature. Powerful voice commands.

  • Cons
    Low-res screen for the size. Wide. Lots of bloatware.
  • Bottom Line

    The Motorola Droid Maxx has a big battery and a nice build, but it loses some of the Moto X’s hand-friendliness.



By Sascha Segan

Is bigger better? The Motorola Droid Maxx packs a big battery and more memory into yet another phone with roughly the same features as the Moto X, which we love. But although the Maxx has more storage and better battery life than the X, it loses some of the friendly, human qualities which make the X so appealing.

In general, the Droid Maxx is extremely similar to the Motorola Droid Ultra, but with a bigger battery. Go read my Motorola Droid Ultra review for a rundown of the basic features. I'll focus on the differences between the phones here.

The first big difference, of course,iPhone 5 cases, is the design. The Droid Maxx, with its five-inch screen, is noticeably wider than the Moto X at 5.41 by 2.8 by .33 inches (HWD) and 5.9 ounces. The difference between 2.57 and 2.8 inches wide is a big deal; while the X is comfortable to use in one hand, it's harder for your thumb to reach across the Maxx. 

Motorola gets things spot-on with the Kevlar casing on this phone, though. Why don't the other Droids feel like this? The Maxx's back is soft-touch, patterned black Kevlar which actually feels like Kevlar, not the ugly, greasy stuff used on the Droid Mini and Droid Ultra. It's even nicer, and the phone feels more solid than the polycarbonate Moto X—not to mention the flimsy plastic Samsung Galaxy S4.

You'll have to buy a Maxx if you're at all worried about storage space,kiwifun.co.nz, as the Droid/X line don't have memory card slots. The Maxx comes with 25.48GB available of 32GB total storage (25.48GB available) to the Droids' 11-or-so of 16GB. The real frustration here is that a 32GB Moto X exists, but it's an AT&T exclusive.

Call Quality and Battery Life
The Droid Maxx's voice quality is similar to the other Droids. The earpiece is loud and a bit trebly, but it doesn't distort. Call audio wobbled a bit, but that seemed like a network problem rather than a handset issue, as speed tests also showed the Verizon Wireless network was pretty congested near our offices. There's a pleasant amount of sidetone in the earpiece and the speakerphone is very powerful.

Transmissions through the mic in a noisy area sounded robotic; Motorola's CrystalTalk noise cancellation killed the noise, but at the cost of rich voice tone. Transmissions through the speakerphone were very clear, although there was very little background noise cancellation. 

The Droid Maxx's 3,500mAh battery is the largest built-in battery in a one-handed smartphone available today. It's significantly more capacious than the Moto X's 2,200mAh battery. But the giant battery didn't translate into a gigantic increase in talk time, with talk time rising only from 14 hours, 15 minutes to 19 hours, 56 minutes when tested in the same location.

I don't want to minimize the advantage of the bigger battery, but I had expected more from such a capacious power cell. That said, the Droid Maxx should last for two days of moderate use without a problem, and it's the only smartphone I can say that about.

Conclusions
Verizon has made things very confusing by carrying the $99 Droid Mini, the $199 Droid Ultra and Moto X, and the $299 Droid Maxx. The Moto X is still the best; it's made from the nicest body material, has the slimmest set of bloatware, and does away with the horrible death-robot Droid branding.

Both the Mini and the Maxx have their advantages. The Maxx has more memory and a bigger battery, and the Mini is even tighter and easier to hold than the Moto X. But in my mind, neither quite hits the sweet spot that the X does; the Mini slips up with its fingerprint-magnet body and misanthropic Droid branding, and the Maxx loses the X's hand-friendliness with its 2.8-inch width.

Our general Editor's Choice for smartphones is still the Samsung Galaxy S 4, for being more things to more people. It's no wider than the Droid Maxx, but it's slimmer and lighter, with a better screen, better camera, and removable memory. While the Droid Maxx is a good smartphone, it's not quite as good as it could be.
