Will Amazon’s Fire Phone flop finally kill flagship carrier exclusives?We’re not sure how many times we have to say this, but offering your premiere piece of hardware as a carrier exclusive is not a good idea. New research from Chitika shows that Amazon’s Fire Phone hasn’t been a smashing success so far and that Amazon’s decision to make it an AT&T exclusive may be a big part of the reason why. FROM EARLIER: Amazon’s Fire Phone looks like 2014’s most epic flop “While the Fire Phone was listed atop Amazon’s Best Seller list for several days in early August, North American usage of the device has grown only incrementally, rather than exponentially, in the three weeks following the smartphone’s launch as an AT&T exclusive,” writes Chitika. “Usage rates of

Sneak Attack: Android Apps Can Ambush Each OtherModern operating systems "sandbox" apps so that they can't affect each other — in theory. In this way, the researchers were able to steal login credentials from the Gmail app, a Social Security number from the H&R Block app, a credit-card number from the NewEgg app and a bank-check image from the Chase app. Only the Amazon app proved resistant, though not immune.

BlackBerry reveals the Passport’s killer feature: The ability to look at x-rays of your lungIf you aren’t clamoring for the BlackBerry Passport yet, just wait until you see how well it can portray x-rays of your lungs. In a new post highlighting the Passport’s unique square display, BlackBerry says that the Passport’s resolution is perfect for seeing images accurately and clearly while noting that any doctor who wants to look at detailed x-rays on their smartphone couldn’t do any better than the device’s 4.5-inch screen.

The policy of keeping the so-called PIS/Cofins payroll tax at zero for computers, smartphones, tablets, modems and routers was scheduled to finish at the end of 2014, but the ministry said in a note it will be continued for four more years.

Most of your favorite free Android apps leave you open to hackersSecurity has always been a huge concern for Android users. From seemingly insignificant security flaws to massive outbreaks that make international headlines, it’s never a bad idea to be cautious when downloading a new app or browsing the web. Unfortunately, sometimes even being careful isn’t enough. In a recent analysis, the FireEye Mobile Security Team discovered that 68% of the top 1,000 free apps on Google Play are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. According to OWASP, a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack is when an attacker intercepts a communication between two systems and then splits the connection in two, injecting new data in between. The 1,000 free apps were just a sample of the roughly 10,000 applications FireEye checked during the analysis. The results are

Windows Phone poised to limp ahead of BlackBerry in another key marketWindows Phone’s global market share is in very bad shape… but things could always be worse. The Guardian reports that new data from research group eMarketer shows that Windows Phone’s user base in the United Kingdom is poised to limp past BlackBerry’s this year, thus marking the first time that Microsoft’s mobile OS has surpassed BlackBerry in the Land of Hope and Glory in terms of active user base.

The official Flappy Bird sequel is now available for iPhone and AndroidAfter pulling the incredibly popular, yet silly, Flappy Bird game from the App Store and Google Play Store, for fear it was too addictive for users, Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen is back with a similar game for iPhone and Android called Swing Copters. FROM EARLIER: Footage from Flappy Bird creator’s crappy new game shown for the first time For all intents and purposes this is basically a Flappy Bird sequel, and can even be considered a clone itself, but this time coming from the actual author of the Flappy Bird hit. Instead of flying a bird through obstacles you pilot a “copter,” and instead of moving horizontally, you’re moving vertically, enjoying the exact same kind of graphics. The game’s description

Fuhu, the company behind it, has been building up a good reputation for developing child-focused tablets that offer interactive education as well as Candy Crush Saga. There are also a number of parental controls such as being able to set a chores list that needs to be completed before tablet time begins, and of course how often kids get to use it without direct supervision can also be controlled directly, or indirectly via a smartphone app. When the kids are in bed, the tablet can be switched over to a normal Android tablet and parents can access any of the 1 million+ apps on Google Play.

U.K. prime minister explains why he won’t quit BlackBerryDavid Cameron just can’t quit you, BlackBerry. In its latest in a series of blog posts touting government officials who still rely on BlackBerry for mobile communications, BlackBerry highlights why U.K. prime minister David Cameron is still sticking with the company despite all the troubles it’s gone through over the past few years. “Wherever I am in the world, I am always within a few feet of a BlackBerry and an ability to manage things should they need to be managed,” Camerson said in a report cited by BlackBerry. “And indeed as I have done on I think almost every holiday that I have enjoyed over the past few years, I am able to return instantly should that be necessary.” Even

Brazil wants Apple and Google to remotely wipe Secret from all iOS and Android devicesSecret is a popular iOS and Android social networking app that lets users chat anonymously, but authorities in Brazil aren’t too fond of it. That’s actually an understatement, as a Brazilian prosecutor wants Apple and Google not only to remove the app for their respective app stores for the region, but also to remotely wipe it from the devices on which it’s already installed on in Brazil, Business Insider reports. However, a ruling on the matter has not passed yet. Assuming the court rules against Apple and Google and admits the prosecutor’s fine request, the companies will have to each pay almost $9,000 for each day the app remains available in the App Store and Google Play Store.

Here’s how to make sure you get Android L before everyone elseGoogle has recently published its Android distribution numbers for early August in which it revealed that KitKat has reached almost 21% market share of all Android phones now in use. While that’s an important milestone for Google, the road was rather long and tedious, as software updates still depend on OEMs and carriers. The same thing will likely happen with Android L adoption as well and Android fans looking to buy a new Android handset should check out Ars Technica’s massive guide on the state of the Android ecosystem and Android updates in the U.S. that reveals “who’s fast, who’s slow, and why.” When it comes to unlocked flagship devices, the fastest handset to receive the latest KitKat builds was the Nexus 4

Verizon still thinks you’re stupidOne of the most difficult parts of getting a new phone is deciding which of the preinstalled bloatware apps might actually serve a purpose at some point in the future and which of the apps to delete. Android is most notorious for this practice, but we all have software on our phones that doesn’t belong there, which makes this report from The Information all the more baffling. FROM EARLIER: Verizon thinks you’re stupid According to The Information, Verizon is planning to launch its own mobile app store to compete with the Google Play store on Android devices. Verizon’s previous attempt at an app store failed to gain much traction, but now that Google has begun cutting back on revenue sharing with

Samsung unveils the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, the Nook’s potential saviorBack in June, Samsung announced it would be joining forces with Barnes & Noble to release a new tablet which combines the hardware of the Galaxy Tab 4 and the content of the Nook library. On Wednesday, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook became official. As expected, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is nearly indistinguishable from Samsung’s original tablet, all the way down to the specifications. The tablet features a 7-inch 1280 x 800 OLED display, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and Android 4.4 KitKat. There’s also a microSD card slot for expanded storage, which you’ll probably need if you plan on loading the device up with book. What separates the new Nook from the Galaxy Tab 4 is

3 things Samsung can do to make the Galaxy Note 4 an Android fan’s dream come trueAre you psyched for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4? If so we don’t blame you — the Galaxy Note 3 was truly a first-rate phablet and based on the leaks we’ve seen, the Note 4 is shaping up to be even better in just about every way. Droid Life’s Tim-o-Tato has made a wish list of things that Samsung can do to make the Note 4 the dream device for Android fans — and like any good list of most wanted smartphone features, he goes well beyond the realm of improved specs. Basically, his pleas to Samsung boil down to three very commonsense suggestions for making the Note 4 the best smartphone released this year: Tone down the TouchWiz overlay, make

In case you’ve never heard of an Ultrasonic Cover before, it’s designed to help people with vision disabilities and can detect objects nearby thanks to an embedded ultrasonic sensor that provides feedback to the user. Galaxy Note 4 owners will be able to set three levels of range for the ultrasonic beam, including short, middle and long.

This one fact alone will make you insanely jealous of Google employeesWhy do people love working at Google so much? There seem to be many reasons and one of them is without a doubt the fact that Google showers its employees with perks when they come into the office every day. Business Insider has scored an interview with Google’s former executive head chef Nate Keller, who tells the publication that by the time he left Google in 2008, he and his team were serving up to 40,000 free meals for Google employees per day.  Even more astonishingly, he says that Google employees were eating roughly $1 million worth of chicken every single month — and again, this was back in 2008, the same year that the very first Android phone launched.

Basically, Sprint is ready to offer subscribers unlimited access to certain apps on their Android devices for as long as they pay the subscription fee, and for as long as they remain with the carrier, Android Police has learned. While the new “feature” may not be that bad, as Sprint seems ready to offer users access to a variety of apps and games, it’s not that great for the user either. The better alternative is sticking with the Google Play Store,

Why is Microsoft still shooting itself in the foot with dumb carrier exclusives?There are days when I honestly don’t know if Microsoft even cares if Windows Phone succeeds. I bring this up because the new HTC One (M8) for Windows launched today and it’s definitely the most promising high-end Windows Phone we’ve seen released this year… and it’s also a Verizon exclusive. If you’ll recall, the two best Windows Phone handsets released in the U.S. last year — the Lumia 1020 and the Lumia 1520 — were also carrier exclusives. At the time, then-Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said that having flagship phones as carrier exclusives meant that the carriers would help out more with the marketing, which meant that Nokia would sell more phones than it otherwise would have if they’d been available
