Apple, ARM and Qualcomm are poaching talent? Based on how far behind ARM and Qualcomm are compared to Apple it looks like they didn't poach enough.
For a laugh, have a read through this thread:   http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/162893/new-android-rat-infects-google-play-apps-turning-phones-into-spyware-zombies   I have maintained all along (as well as a couple others) that Google Play Services cannot update all security flaws in Android. Yet several well known trolls here on AI claim I was wrong and that it does.   Now we find out at Google I/O that Google has expanded the capabilities of Google Play Services...
 This statement makes you a liar. You have posted several times in the past that Google Play Services updates Android where I stated that it did not as it could only update items within Apps themselves. Now Google has expanded Google Play Services to make it possible to make security updates as well. Basically, my prior statements regarding Google Play Services were correct and your were not. So, were you lying when you made those statements in the past? Or just ignorant?...
 I've asked you so many times before, can you please provide a link to Google's standard indemnification policy? Microsoft puts their policy right up on their website, and it's the same for everyone. Like I predicted above, you came in and talked about previously hidden contracts Google made with OEM's, which are all unique and different in what they cover. Just because Google made a deal with some companies, to indemnify them in certain circumstances does not mean they...
 Of course you'd come back with that response. Microsoft software runs on a gazillion different combinations of hardware, and it still gets indemnification. And Windows Mobile (which also gets some modifications like Android) is indemnified. It took almost a year before Microsoft was able to work out the terms for Mobile because of this. Google forces tight restrictions on Android OEM's. They can modify Android, but only within very specific limits. The reason Google won't...
 Thanks for digging that up. Now explain to me why Google Apps is covered, but Android is not. Think long and carefully about this. What good is using a company and its services when it selectively indemnifies what it offers? So if you use Google Apps on an Android device, are you actually protected by an indemnification policy? How do you determine which aspect of your complete business solution is actually indemnified, when there are different agreements between various...
 Are any government agencies stupid enough to use Google Apps?  Does Google indemnify anyone using their products (like Microsoft does)? Why no, they don't..........Waiting for GG to come in here and lie and make the claim they do, even though he has never been able to provide any sort of link to Google's official policy on this, and instead will link to a couple half-baked (and restrictive) agreements Google made with HTC and Samsung.
KNOX started off with so much promise as it actually looked very good. But it only worked on certain Samsung devices that had the necessary hardware to support it. Then there's all the little "issues" that popped up. As it stands, only a very small percentage of Samsung devices that have KNOX actually have it enabled.   I guess Google lacked the resources to bring Enterprise security to Android, so they made a deal with Samsung to take KNOX and apply it to Android. The...
 Lies. iOS and Android (and WP) are all susceptible to malware, but to claim "All the mobile OS's are just as open" is an outright lie. Which makes you a liar, again. iOS is FIPS certified. Android is not. That right there speaks volumes for the security of both OS's. Android One still doesn't get around the fact that many security updates are at the lowest levels of the operating system, and Android One (or Google Play Services) can't fix those. They still require an...
