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 specifications, but the system output should not be compromised 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 although the Us is by no means a developing market people may appreciate a low-key Android-powered smartphone that comes with a price tag that is budget-friendly. Zte took this into account and launched the first Android Go phone in the Us – 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 storage. However, 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 output. It’s designed to offer a functional Android experience in a low-budget smartphone with hardware crippling. For the Zte Tempo Go, the ideal use case would be as a secondary / backup phone. In addition to Zte five other companies have reported plans to make Android Go phones. Although 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 app. 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 collection 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. These apps are designed to download 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. The dropper applications you can instantly deinstall are as follows: Magnifying Glass by PumpApp Super Bright Led Flashlight by LizotMitis Ultra-bright Flashlight by PumpApp Magnifier Magnifying Glass with FlashlightTwo Senators Officially Propose New Legislation to End Nsa Phone Surveillance

ByBill Toulas-January 25, 2020.730 The U.S. Senate wants to prevent the Nsa and any other organization from again spying on people. 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 accumulated 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. Freedom and security are not separated from each other. — 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 closes any current “false rule” loopholes. More precisely, the new bill will do the following: forbid users from collecting warrantless cell site location and Gps information, 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 events. Prohibit all monitoring practices outside of the Fisa process. Close loopholes in the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Stored 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” “Seek Change” and “Free Press” have already publicly expressed their support for the bill while many other Senators would certainly vote for the new law. There are however those such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who is unlikely to support Section 215 legislation.
