Finally Samsung SIII gets Jelly Bean Update.

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has begun rolling out to handsets in Eastern Europe, signalling a possible arrival to other regions very soon.

According to SamMobile, Galaxy S3 handsets in Poland can now get Jelly Bean via the Kies desktop software or through an over the air (OTA) update.

Eyes Will Reveal

In June 2002, the movie Minority Report was released to critical acclaim. A few of you may know the movie was based on a short story by science fiction writer; Philip K. Dick.  What you  may not know is that the fiction may become fact…probably sooner than you expect.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reportedly embarking on a $1 billion project with some tech giants to basically recreate the ocular wizardry as seen in  the movie for identifying citizens.

Next thing you know, you’ll have to be careful about having nightmares as they just might become fact!!!

Motorola teams up with Intel, announces RAZR i in Europe: packs 2GHz Medfield processor, launches next month

Motorola’s revealed the first smartphone to be borne from its team-up with Intel. Here in London, UK, it’s a familiar-looking Android smartphone with an important internal difference. The RAZR i will be running on one of Intel’s latest mobile chips (2GHz processor), differentiating it from what we saw from the Google-owned phone-maker a few weeks earlier. Motorola’s calling the phone its biggest launch in the UK since the original RAZR.

Motorola’s touting the (almost “edge-to-edge”) 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 2,000mAh of battery and the same Kevlar coating — it’s water repellent this time. But this event is also about Intel’s 2GHz processor inside. The chipmaker says it’s optimized the architecture for web browsing, especially for Java-based activities. It’s also pushing for power consumption even on processor-intensive activities like gaming — but we’ll have to wait for our own tests to check it out. (more…)

Microsoft warns Internet Explorer Users against Eminent Attack

Users of Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions have been urged to deploy a toolkit that could help protect their PC against a series of attacks hitting its system.

It was revealed earlier in the day by security forum Rapid7 that Internet Explorer was hit with a new zero-day exploit, which takes advantages of a security hole within websites to carry out attacks. This means that anyone using IE to visit a website that has malicious links could have their computer compromised.

The exploit is said to affect Windows XP, Vista and 7 systems.

The EMET aims to protect against this issue and should not affect usability of websites.

RIM: BB10 will have more launch apps than any other OS

20120909-115341.jpg

We may not see RIM’s next-gen OS BB10 for a few months yet, but the BlackBerry-maker is already bigging up its app skills.

BB10 will have more apps at launch than any other mobile operating system, according to RIM’s vice president of developer relations and ecosystem development, Alec Saunders, CNET reports. The bad news? That might not be such a hard task after all.

Saunders concedes that iOS and Android’s app stores were practically nonexistent when the operating systems launched, which leaves Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS as the frontrunner. Its magic number is 7,000 apps — that’s according to Nokia at the launch of the Lumia 920 this week. (more…)
