Zte Tempo Go: The first Android phone to be sold in The Usa ByNitish Singh-March 31 2018.723 Zte launches Zte Tempo Go-an Android Go powered smartphone in the Us market. The phone is priced at $79 with entry-level features, but the system output should not be affected too much if it is powered by Android Go. In addition to Zte five other companies plan to produce Android Go phones. Android Go was released last year as a dedicated Os for entry-level smartphones (which lacks sufficient hardware to power Android stock) in developing markets, a stripped-down version of vanilla Android. Now, while the Us is by no means a developing market people that appreciate a low-key Android-powered smartphone that comes with a price tag that is budget-friendly. Zte acknowledged this and released in the Us the first Android Go phone – the Zte Tempo Go. Figure 1 Image Courtesy of The Verge Priced at $79.99spec sheet too you’ll find an unbeatable entry-level Snapdragon 210 chipset clocked at 1.1 Ghz with a mere 1 Gb Ram and a measly 8 Gb ram. But, with the lightweight and less resource-hungry Android Go operating system this won’t be a problem. Even though the Os is designed to run on low spec devices, this doesn’t automatically mean you won’t get phenomenal Zte Tempo Go results. It’s designed to offer a functional Android experience in a low-budget smartphone with hardware crippling. For the Zte Tempo Go, the best use case would be as a secondary / backup phone. In addition to Zte five other companies have revealed plans to make Android Go mobile. While Zte may have won the race for the first Android Go phone, Alcatel is in hot pursuit and has already announced plans to launch its $100-priced Alcatel 1X Android Go smartphone. It should be remembered that the other companies for their Android Go phones do not include the Us, unlike Zte, in the target demographic. In reality, the countries like India and Africa are the most interested. Another Batch of Dropper Apps Has Been Discovered on the Google Play StoreByBill Toulas-November 7, 2019.725 Wandera is finding another group of malicious apps on the Play Store that are all adware fetchers. The apps wait 10 minutes before they wreak havoc that doesn’t stop even when the screen’s off. Wandera researchers are warning us about seven applications that are on the Google Play Store and contain a dropper. Such apps are designed to retrieve almost always adware Apks (Android Packages) from a GitHub repository. This obviously violates multiple terms and policies of the Google Play Store will lead to fraudulent data charges for the victims to drain the battery of the computer and cause slowdown in results.

ByBill Toulas-January 25, 2020.730 The U.S. Senate is deteriorating A new proposal for a bill proposes amending Section 215 and calls for more independent oversight. Senators Ron Wyden and Steve Daines also introduced bipartisan legislation that would officially end Nsa’s expansive phone recording system from which the agency pulled back the plug last fall. Collecting phone data without obtaining a warrant to do so was a common practice for the National Security Agency and went against U.S. citizens ‘ fundamental constitutional rights. Although the Nsa deleted the call logs they had collected over the years following the contamination of the database, the need to officially end this practice was long overdue. I’ve just introduced bipartisan legislation to officially terminate the Nsa telephone surveillance program and reform American private record collection to protect constitutional rights. Liberty and security don’t exclude one another. — Ron Wyden (@RonWyden) 23 January 2020 The new bill proposes amendments to both Section 215 of the Patriot Act and the Fisa (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance) process. It further increases oversight and accountability, and removes any current “false rule” loopholes. More precisely, the new bill will do the following: forbid users from collecting warrantless cell site location and Gps records, as well as browsing history and web search history. Introduce the provision in relation to Section 215 Orders to support Fisa Court Orders. Eliminate this ambiguous level of “relevance.” Expand the function of autonomous amici curiae. Boost diversity judge by Fisa Court. Introduce new standards for public reporting in respect of section 215 proceedings. Prohibit all monitoring activities outside of the Fisa process. Close loopholes in the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Retained Communications Act. While the new legislation is aimed at protecting the rights of the people to the Fourth Amendment and although it is believed to be bipartisan nothing is certain about its fate. Privacy advocacy groups in the U.S. such as the “FreedomWorks” “Demand Progress” and “Free Press” have already voiced their support for the bill publicly, while many other Senators would certainly vote for the new law. There are however others such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who is unlikely to support Section 215 legislation. Statement: Demand Progress endorses the Fisa reform bill introduced by Senators @SteveDaines@RonWyden@RepZoeLofgren@RepJayapal@WarrenDavidson The bill will implement long overdue legislative changes, including # Section215#Patriotact ] Jack Mannino of nVisium told us: “These are important steps towards securing civil liberties and the rights of the fourth amendment of citation. Intelligence agencies do important work, and they need to be able to do their jobs while maintaining legal and moral standards. “Isf’s Steve Durbin commented that:” There should be a balance between the law enforcement authorities and the battle against crime. There has been ongoing debate on how to strike the right balance, as protecting personal data and protecting the rights of the people is a difficult feat to accomplish. Transparency and regulation are crucial criteria and this Bill is at least a bipartisan attempt to tackle what will be an ongoing challenge in our increasingly cyber-enabled environment. “
