Leak: Is this the iPhone 5 design ?

9to5mac iPhone 5 Leak CaseWe are not surprised to see clandestine photos surface claiming to be shots of the next iPhone’s chasis. At first sight the screen appears to be longer and, as speculation has it, this could be a design to allow a larger battery. One crazy thing is that the headphone jack is plastered on the bottom. The dock connector has been altered too, much smaller in size to the dock connector on existing iPhones. That spells nothing but trouble if you already own peripherals for your iPhone. This is the iPhone 5 and it has the world already grasping for straws to predict what it will be.

It was only last Tuesday that many photos surfaced, claiming to reveal all the goodies of the next iPhone by Apple. 9to5Mac was one culprit, along with couple of repair shops and a Hong Kong mobile phone accessories reseller.

CISPA could reinstate terror among U.S. citizens

CISPASOPA has already been forgotten, though it was the last threat against your privacy, launched by the government against the American people. In November they launched another assault, called the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. At the last minute an amendment was added that expanded the powers far beyond cyber protection. But then again, the crooks in Washington are always perpetrating such abuses on the American people.

CISPA paves the way for the U.S. government and private business to cooperate on security threats, as well as on suspicions of child pornography. It shields private companies from law suits for sharing clients’ private information and correspondence, with the U.S. government, when it is for the sake of national security or on suspicion of child pornography.

Samsung Galaxy S III comes with a new design and a faster processor

Samsung Galaxy S IIIIn a fabulous event which took place in London earlier this week, Samsung unveiled one of the most expected smartphone of the year: Galaxy S III.

It’s loaded to the gills with all of Samsung’s goodies and it’s about as state of the art as you can get from this company. So far fans are practically knocking each other over for these phones and for good reason. First there was so much hype that people almost got to thinking the Galaxy S III could alter the course of the Earth.

Well to keep matters in perspective, the design of the Galaxy S III is just what the doctor ordered. It’s thin and sleek and brushed plastic. You can get it in the colors of Marble White or Pebble Blue.

You’ll see it has dimensions of 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm and a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen. A screen the fans say is just astonishing in color and performance. Actually it looks like a small pad. Just the screen alone is worth buying the Galaxy S III.

Google Drive cloud service comes with 5GB of free storage

Google DriveIf it isn’t providing the world’s most advanced and largest search engine features, phone services, maps, video games, news, Gmail, documents and more, the dominating mega corporation has now revealed their cloud storage arm called Google Drive.

Yes, now Google has thrown in their silver lining to the cloud storage arena with their Google Drive.

Mind you, because it’s Google they’re not going to put out some average, run of the mill kind of product they’re going to brand it as much as they can just short of coming to your home and and tattooing their name on your forehead.  Google Drive is nothing like the other cloud storage companies.  Yes, Goggle Drive offers you 5 gigabytes of storage for free and it scales upwards to $50 for a terabyte, but Google has employed every aspect of the Google experience online from its documents to just about everything else that you the user needs.

More than half a Million Mac Computers are Hosting Malware

Mac OS XAn amazing 600,000 Apple computers were struck and conquered by the Flashback Trojan, Dr. Web from Russia claims. It infiltrates as a malware and then converts the machine into a botnet. A botnet is a network of machines vulnerable to the control of someone other than it’s users. What is worse is that more than half of these infected Macs reside in the U.S, according to Dr. Web’s estimates.

As could be expected, Apple responded with a security patch. Without the patch, your system lies vulnerable or at worst infected already. So do not wait to patch your Apple.

Flashback made itself known by disguising as a simple update on Flash Player. Accepting the request put the malware on the unsuspecting user’s computer, followed by a deactivation of selective security features.

Google wants to deliver Ads based on the background noise

Google Background Noise Ads PatentIn the last few decades, the marketing and advertising ways of communicating have changed tremendously. Surely, the internet has made it easier for companies to put up ads and commercials for a fraction of the cost of an actual billboard on the side of the expressway. Nevertheless, some of these techniques are quite intrusive sometimes, or at least that’s what some consumers think. As you may already know, technological companies are always trying to stay ahead and usually file for patents before the product has been released or the idea put into practice.

The last idea filed to be patented by Google is definitely intrusive to say the least. The idea is that their new technology will have the ability to study the background noise that is being produced during a call, and then move up to play ads, which depend on the environmental conditions that Google is able to detect.
