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.

Enjoy Fox Movies On Your Android Phone

20th century fox has marked another good step in the entertainment industry, bringing movie watching to the next level. Now you’ll be able to watch movies on your Android device with a new feature which Fox brings exclusively to you.

The word on the street is that FOX is introducing a new feature that would allow users to download Fox movies on their Android devices. However, the feature won’t work in a manner allowing users to directly download movies to Android devices, instead, users will first have to buy a physical copy of the movie, thus allowing him/her to download an Android-friendly copy of the movie to the PC which can then be loaded to Android device.

Sprint Upgrades Upload Speed To 1.5Mbps

Sprint customers will soon be enjoying an upload speed of 1.5Mbps, compared to the original 1Mbps upload rate. The news came from an internal screen that was captured by Android Police, and reported from AndroidCentral.

The change will be implemented tomorrow, Friday, June 10th and will only affect 4G phones, sorry to all you 3G users.

T-Mobile Releases Rocket 3.0 Modem Stick

T-Mobile revealed today the release date and pricing for the first HSPA+ 42Mbps modem along with an announcement that the network is doubling the speed of its current 4G network across 50 markets in the United States.

I am glad to see that while AT&T seeks to get the T-Mobile acquisition approved, T-Mobile continues business as usual (which is smart, in case the deal doesn’t go through, it wouldn’t be good for T-Mobile to stand as a wallflower).

New Malicious Module Attacks Unnoticed

Online attackers usually exploit webpages by adding malicious scripts to HTML pages or specific code that triggers “drive-by downloads.” Unfortunately, a new attack discovered last Friday called Apmod not only infects webpages but infects the web server itself. When a web server gets infected, each user that requests a web page from the infected server is a victim. Although this new attack is not yet widespread, it has the potential to be, it targets popular Apache Web Servers that run on both Windows and Linux. Apache Web Servers currently host about 204 million websites.

Music Piracy: Not a Big Deal?

Just released statistics from research group NPD show that less than 10% of Americans get their music from peer-to-peer downloading. This number is down from 16% in 2007, according to their Music Acquisition Monitor survey. This number seems relatively small considering the proliferation of fear in the music production industry, and the money spent on anti-piracy campaigns.

A reason for this drop is the court-ordered shutdown of LimeWire last October. According to NPD, in 2010, 56% of Americans using P2P music services used LimeWire, however this dropped to 32% in the months before they shut down.

No More Subscription Needed for Wall Street Journal iPad App

The Wall Street Journal has announced they will offer single issue downloads of its morning edition for $1.99. This will be available through their existing app, which is free. Previously, they only offered bundles and subscriptions, such as the “Now Edition,” which provides regular new updates for $18 a month. The “Digital Bundle” offers full access to WSJ.com and its digital products for about $17 a month.

The option to just get a paper without subscribing will be tested on the iPad first, and then move on to the Android. The single-issue downloads are a way for users to try out the both the content and format of an iPad newspaper, for relativley little cost.
