Apple buying Fingerprint Sensor maker AuthenTec


Apple buys Authentec
Apple Inc will buy fingerprint sensor technology developer AuthenTec Inc for about $356 million, in a deal that could put its iPhone at the center of the emerging mobile payments market. 

Apple is paying $8 per share, a 58 per cent premium, for Melbourne, Florida-based AuthenTec, w hich c ounts Korean mobile de vice maker S amsung Electronics Co Ltd among its big customers.

AuthenTec which makes fingerprint sensor chips used in personal computers and mobile devices -- is one of the very few public companies that has been acquired by Apple, a company that rarely does acquisitions and tends to buy mostly startups when looking for cutting-edge technology.

AuthenTec, which was spun off from Harris Semiconductor in 1998 and went public in 2007, provides mobile security software licenses to companies like Samsung, and fingerprint sensor technology to computer makers such as Hewlett-Packard Co and Dell Inc.

Its fingerprint technology, which is also used in mobile phones in Japan for authentication of mobile payments, could help Apple bring those services to markets such as the United States, where mobile wallet services have been slow to catch on.

Some analysts expect the next version of the iPhone to include some form of mobile payments technology.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment on how Apple plans to use AuthenTec's technology.

10 things to know about Google's 1Gbps Internet


Google 1 Gbps Internet
Check out the 10 things you need to know about Google's 1Gbps Internet connection:

1) Google Fiber's ultra high-speed connections and television offerings are aimed at surpassing those of current providers, allowing users to search live channels, Netflix, YouTube, recorded shows and tens of thousands of hours of on-demand programming. However, no phone service is available.

2) Google said it also intends to roll out product packages for businesses, but would not provide details.

3) Google Fiber includes more than 100 networks and costs $120 a month for a package of TV, 1Gbps internet speeds and 1Tb of cloud storage.

4) Google is also offering an internet-only package priced at $70 a month. The download speeds would be around 1Gbps, according to Google executives.

5) The package includes popular networks owned by major media companies such as Comcast Corp's NBC Universal, Discovery Communications and Viacom. Premium movie networks are available from Liberty Media's Starz for an extra fee. But it excludes several major TV names, such as News Corp's Fox cable channels; Time Warner networks like CNN, TNT and TBS, as well as Walt Disney cable channels like ESPN and Disney children networks.

6) Google is charging a $300 installation fee, saying consumers should treat it as a 'home improvement' cost.

7) The initial service area includes central Kansas City, Missouri and the entire city of neighboring Kansas City, Kansas.

8) Consumers must pay $10 to register their household online for service. About 50 'neighbors' will need to register in order for their area to be eligible for installation services, according to Google executives.

9) Google Fiber includes such features as the ability to record eight TV shows at a time and store up to 500 hours of high definition programming. Users can choose to use a tablet or smartphone as a voice-activated remote control.

Samsung sold more than 26 million devices than Apple!


samsung devices sold more than apple
South Korean electronics giant Samsung has outshipped Apple by a two-to-one margin in the April to June period, according to a new report.

According to a Juniper Research report, Samsung, which is already leading in the global smartphone market thanks to its flagship Galaxy series, shipped an estimated 52.1 million devices in the second quarter that was twice the 26 million iPhones that Apple claimed to have sold.

Samsung's strong sales were boosted after the success of the latest Galaxy S III phone, which was launched in June and was an immediate hit among tech reviewers and smartphone users.

"At the end of the day, the S III is really strong competition for the iPhone," the New York Daily News quoted Jonathan Geller, Editor-in-Chief of tech site BGR.com (Boy Genius Report), as saying. But keep in mind that the iPhone was released nearly a year ago, so for an 'old' phone it didn't do that badly," he added.

The S III, also known as the 'iPhone killer' has a larger screen, higher resolution among other advanced features and sold up to 10 million units in June, the report said.

Geller believes that consumers waiting for the release of the iPhone 5 during the fall may have also contributed to Apple's disappointing revenue collections. The Juniper finding also estimated about 132.9 million smartphones were shipped in the second quarter, which rose from 105.2 million a year ago.

Keep your Phone on a Leash; Use Cell Phone Trackers

Smartphones are expensive. Some like iPhone and Galaxy S III cost around six hundred dollars each. This makes them one of the most expensive possessions owned by a person. But these expensive devices have us hooked on them. They have made it easier for us to have access to entertainment and work while being on the move. But there is a huge problem that comes hand in hand with the increase in the dependence of people on their smartphones. This being that in the case that the smartphone gets lost or stolen, the owner loses a lot of personal and business information, which can prove to be very harmful to the owner. This is why it is recommended to use cell phone trackers like StealthGenie on your phone.

Compatibility
A multiplatform cell phone tracker, StealthGenie is compatible with all three of the world’s most popular smartphone operating systems. Here is the list of the compatible smartphone operating systems:
  • Android OS 2.1 till 4.0
  • iOS 4.0 till 5.0
  • BlackBerry OS 4.6 till 7.0
Cell Phone Tracker

StealthGenie’s primary purpose is to be an efficient cell phone tracker. To this end StealthGenie offers you two features. The first one is the Geo Location feature, which allows you to view the real time location of the target phone. The second feature that StealthGenie offers you is the Geo Tracker, which allows you to view the location history of the target phone.

Call logs Feature

StealthGenie also allows you to view the call logs of the target phone, including the number dialed and the time/date stamps.

SMS Messages Feature

StealthGenie allows you to view the content of the incoming and outgoing SMS messages of the target phone.

Internet Monitoring Feature

By giving you access to the web browser history and the bookmarks of the target phone, StealthGenie allows you to observe and monitor the internet usage of the target phone.

Call Recording Feature

This app allows you to record the incoming and outgoing calls of the target phone. You can even customize the settings to choose which calls to record and which to ignore. The recordings are uploaded to StealthGenie’s website.

Data Access

This cell phone tracker lets you view the data content stored in the internal memory of the target phone. You can view the pictures, music and video files saved in the target phone.

Chat Services

A very interesting feature of StealthGenie is its ability to allow you to view the chat conversations conducted over BBM and Google Talk.

Live Recordings

Finally, StealthGenie also lets you record the live surroundings of the target phone. This feature can be activated by sending an SMS command to the target phone.

Feasibility

StealthGenie offers multiple core packages to its customers at various prices. Its platinum package starts from 16 dollars a month and its basic package starts from 8 dollars a month. This makes this particular cell phone tracker a very tempting deal.
