Google Not Paying Its Employees??

iOS and Android are the two largest mobile operating systems today, and while Apple has paid over $2.5 billion dollars to its developers, we wonder what exactly is happening over at Google’s end.

According to a report by The Register, Android developers receipts aren’t matching the actual number that they are selling and are only getting paid for half of their applications.

Save Time When Buying Apps With Password Pilot

Since buying stuff online is a risky process, online stores usually have your account setup with a password with which you can access the online material and save you the peril of losing important information or data. Apple also followed the same procedure where you only had to put in your password once, saving the trouble of punching the password again for next 15 minutes.

This was only until some lawsuits were filed against Apple. Apple, fearing an FCC investigation changed the method leaving users to enter password for every download. This sometimes becomes very troublesome for frequent downloaders who get lots of stuff.

Evoluce Two And Microsoft Surface SDK: Match Made In Heaven

With Microsoft Kinect, Evoluce can support up to four users simultaneously, allowing them to work on the beautiful 46″ multi-touch LCD screen. The multimedia table is capable of recognizing 60 simultaneous inputs and is the optimal way to collaborate with photos, videos, documents, and maps.

LEAK: Apple Works On 3D Gesture Control Tech For iOS

Apple Inc. has filed a new patent for 3D gesture control with a physics metaphor control. Hopefully Apple is just experimenting with future technologies because I can’t imagine the iPhone 5 having NFC, 3D video recording, and virtually every ‘latest and greatest’ feature we’ve been learning about recently.

I mean, can’t a phone be *too powerful for its own good? Anyways, the developing technology was first reported as a patent leak and people suspect Apple will use this as some kind of tool for developers to better aid themselves in the workplace.

Protect Your iPhone With VirusBarrier

If you’re feeling a little anxious about all the malware that has been showing up on Androids marketplace, you may be a little concerned over your iPhone as well. Although Apple is known to generally have less malware than PCs, that doesn’t mean they are immune to the baddies.

Is Your Jailbroken iOS Device, Secure?

Many computer enthusiasts and geeks worldwide opt to jailbreak their devices as soon as they get them. Why? Let’s just say it allows you to do more with your new device. And while iOS5 will prevent new devices to be jailbroken, there are still millions of people who use older iPads and iPhones that were given the golden key to freedom.

However, a recently released code for the jailbreaking software could expose the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to malicious software, and all it takes is a single hack.

Get Unlimited Skips In Pandora

If you are like me and listen to Pandora 50 hours a week, or if you just enjoy having the option of skipping as many songs as you want, you’re going to want to hear this. An XDA forum member by the name of yakitori2 has hacked the Pandora platform to give users the ability to skip as many songs as they desire.

From a quick glance, it appears that this is only a hack for the mobile version of Pandora, and unfortunately does not apply to PC users. Although, you may be able to hook up your android phone to your speakers and get a similar effect.

BitTorrent Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary

A programmer by the name of Bram Cohen invented something very special 10 years ago, the first peer-to-peer BitTorrent protocol, in April of 2011.

Just three months later he posted “My new app, BitTorrent, is now in working order” on Yahoo Groups, along with a URL.

Cohen wrote the first BitTorrent client in Python, and while it received a very slow welcoming, it was just years later when the platform really took off.
