Banking Malware Source:  http://www.technologyreview.com/graphiti/528306/malware-on-the-move/   Indeed as the other commenter noted, it may be phishing attacks are significant.   However, there are reportedly huge % of Android marketplace apps infected with malware designed to do keylogging.   Hence, phishing is hardly the only way Android users get screwed over because of a lack of a controlled and mediated app marketplace.
Meanwhile, in the real world, banking theft malware has tripled in 6 months. Good luck Google for promoting something so insecure your customers could loose more in one hack that it cost them to buy your phone!
I call BS. You can't do spectroscopic analysis to tell just what is in drinks and know it is accurate unless you can do calibration. I wouldn't be surprised to find out you need to tell it that you are drinking a "diet Coke" for it to give any half-way decent results.
Just because it is possible to do something "automatically" does not mean we should do it.
One thing I know for sure is Apple is not going to make crap products.
Comparing the image to the size of trees on the shore, the "Nessie" would have to be 100 feet long. Not possible.
Some people always want to return to the past success. Then others write about it as if it is ordained that past success is ordained to be the religious path to a better future. If anything has been seen in the world of commerce, it is that you can not stand still and fake, fear or fumble change in the face of competitors, as change is inevitable. Tim Cook is a realist and understands this change. You don't follow the past, you lead.
Apple has reached the point in design, shipment volumes and volume buying to where they are obviously more competitive on pricing while still offering all their software extras and device integration. It is going to become hard for competitors to match Apple going forward. I first got a clue about this when my brother's company (hi-tech electro-optics) analyzed all the laptops available for the sales crew and picked the best Windows laptops they could find and settled on...
Microsoft's Board of Directors has no clothes on %u2026 and no one is willing to admit it. A great salesman ought to stay as the sales manager. Microsoft should have found a product visionary to head MS so they could lead rather than follow the industry slowly. MS has lost a dozen years under lackluster leaders.
The iPhone 5S has a near workstation class CPU of a decade ago. It is obvious that more sophisticated apps and interactions between hardware will now be possible from all the iOS and OSX developers in the near future. Glad to see Daniel bringing this all to light with his insight, where the other media mostly doesn't see below the 4 color glossy headlines.
