The Awesome Privacy Tools in Android 4.3

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

To date, there has been no way to run apps on Android with real and reliable privacy controls. Android version 4.3 and higher take a huge step in the right direction, letting users install apps while denying some of the apps’ attempts to collect the user’s data. Android was built from scratch to have quite a sophisticated and strongly enforced system of per-app permissions. But many of the privacy-sensitive permissions are poorly delineated and confusing.1 And the way the OS and Google’s Play Store worked, users could not install an app but say “no” to that app’s demand that it be able to read their address book, track their location, or grab their phone number or IMEI. … …read...

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

There’s a long running joke that kids would rather play with the cardboard box than the toy inside. And that’s especially true if that cardboard can then be transformed into an articulated 20-inch tall robot like our friend here. Thanks to pre-cut holes and panels, as well as folding cardboard joints and hinges, this creation is more than just a static sculpture—it can also be posed and played with. And you don’t need glue, scissors, or a hobby knife to assemble it. … …read...

5 Camera Features You Should Be Using But Aren't

Posted by on Dec 9, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

APERTURE-PRIORITY MODE A large aperture, such as f2.8, creates a narrow depth of field for soft, blurred backgrounds. This mode gives you the leeway to be creative with the close and distant elements in your photo. FLASH COMPENSATION Camera flashes are often overused. In low light, you can always open the aperture wider, slow the shutter speed, or use this feature to adjust the flash power for more-natural-looking illumination in your shot. HIGH ISO Bumping up your ISO setting will help with low light. But the higher the ISO, the grainier the image. Restrict …read...

Windows Phone scores wins but still faces challenges – PC Magazine

Posted by on Dec 8, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

Recent successes for Windows Phone smartphones in the U.S. and Europe continue to be overshadowed by challenges the platform faces in China and elsewhere. The Windows Phone operating system still ranks third globally, far behind Android and iOS, yet most experts say it will have staying power for years to come. That’s because software giant Microsoft has deep pockets and clearly wants to keep the OS durable. Microsoft and Windows Phone will also get boosts as the company converges the mobile OS into the Windows operating system. Smartphones running the Windows Phone OS took nearly 5 percent market share in the U.S. in the third quarter ending September 30, and topped 10 percent in the combined five-biggest European countries, according to data released Monday from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. The momentum for Windows Phone comes from low-cost...

2015 Ford Mustang revealed – Yahoo Autos

Posted by on Dec 5, 2013 in Tech Toys | 0 comments

After 49 years, you would think Ford would have figured out the formula for designing a new Mustang. Yet every fresh generation of the car since the ’70s has drawn great concern from the fan base — and occasionally, those fears came true. This time around, Ford’s corporate rule of building models for global consumption led to the most worry; would the new ‘Stang lose some of its essential character while chasing new buyers? Here’s the answer: Yes, there will be right-hand-drive Mustangs, although they’ll be a small portion of total output from the Flat Rock, Mich., factory. Yes, there’s a new turbo four-cylinder engine option that will hearken back to the SVO days of the ’80s. And the rear suspension finally joins the 21st century, dropping the cheap solid rear axle setup as pioneered by the Model T....
