WhatsApp Escapes the Knife Edge!!!

WhatsApp, one of the most popular apps in the world, contravenes international privacy laws because it forces users to provide access to their entire address book according to  Canadian and Dutch data center. 

WhatsApp, ranking as one of the world's top five best-selling apps, is an instant-messaging application for smartphones including android,Apple and many others.

Based at California  it provides a free internet alternative to SMS, or text messaging, sending more than a million messages a day.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) and the Dutch Data Protection Authority, in a joint report released on Monday, said that it had violated privacy laws as users have to provide access to all phone numbers in their address book, including both registered users and non-registered users of the app.
WhatsApp was not immediately available to comment.

The investigators found that WhatsApp retained the mobile numbers of non-registered users and was against the laws of privacy.

 In September 2012, whatsapp updated its app with encryption for its service, partly in response to concerns raised by the investigation.

The Dutch agency made sure it continued to follow the app's foot steps and  would penalize if the privacy issues were continued.

Google X?Is It Really the special one from google?

What is Google X?Do we other phone by google than the current nexus series?

 As we know nexus is a blend of both google itself and the OEMs.But wait doesnt this mean its not by google only.Well thats the disadvantage.In the late december wall street journal reported a google device named X phone to be coming up lately.
The X phone is the phone that most iphone fan boys are awaiting for,the phone that may make people leave Apple. Since acquiring Motorola Mobility,Google might be planning a X phone with its own hardware and of coarse its own AIR updates.
Meanwhile ,in a recent earnings call this week ,Google's CEO Larry Page outlined a range of features he'd like to see in the upcoming google phones.He says "Battery life is a huge issue.You shouldn't have to worry about constantly recharging your phone. When you drop your phone, it shouldn't go splat. Everything should be a ton faster and easier. There’s real potential to invent new and better experiences",as reported by The Verge.
These words from Larry Page gives a slight belief for this rumored device.While recently it is estimated that Apple and iphones rule 51% of US market,Android still rules the worldwide market share.

New reign of RIM? Offers Android devs $2,000 to port apps to BB 10

RIM really wants Android developers to bring their apps over to BlackBerry 10, and it’s got the cash to prove it.It seems that RIM is going hold a BlackBerry 10 Last Chance Port-A-Thon in which it will pay Android developers $100 for every approved app port to BlackBerry 10 with a limit of 20 different paid apps per developer. RIM said that it will start at noon Friday and will run for 36 hours. App developers  showning  strong interest in BlackBerry 10 made RIM announce that it had received 15,000 app submission over just two days during the last port-a-thon, although RIM didn’t mention the extent of influence its cool SDK had in convincing companies to develop for BB 10.
So does this mean it can stand a chance against the world's leading operating systems like Apple and Android?

'Temple Run 2' launching on iPhone and iPad tonight

Temple run launching on ipad and Iphones tonight. As confirmed by touch arcade temple run 2 is already available on New Zealand store will hit the stores worldwide tonight . Sadly it's not yet available on Android devices while it's a big loss for the enthusiastic android fans .
What's the major difference:
All fans don't expect him to fly or shoot or growl cause that's just not there (sadly).
It seems finally the guy in the game seem to have finally some how managed to enter the castle that we see in the story of jack and the bean stalk.No wonder he's being chased by the giant in the similar to the story but here the giant looks kind of out of our imagination(Looks more like the black thing in temple run).Though its good to see him run on over the sky. I wish he'd the ability to run through clouds also.
New features:
This includes the long tutorial which is about 3-4 minutes.
It also has the different type of resurrection through save me before he dies.
The new game features a new kind of power magnet (just a different animation)
Rest all is pretty much the same thing. .!!
For video refer link below! !!

BlackBerry 10!!! A Threat??

Recently BlackBerry announced their new version BB10. Is this the new weapon against other platforms out there? Does it stand a chance to win especially with android in the top?
We'll concentrate here on 3 main aspects,
1.The current status
2.Compatibility and support
3.Reach for consumers
1. BlackBerry now has very less consumers in its hand. Based on the analysis 1 out of 10 users have blackberry running their day.While android having 6 phones, with 2 Iphones and 1 windows phone. With this low amount of share also it sure does stand a chance to stand up against others. But these chances are restricted to the 2nd and 3rd aspects.
2. As we see previous blackberry versions don't support many applications to be able to run on the platform. The app store has less apps as compared to other os. Though recently there were 150000 apps being developed for the os in 2 days. This still is not a major support. With androids users increasing and Iphones selling out. BlackBerry has a very chance in the market for its less app availability even against windows. Now with lumia 920 releasing the market will be shifted slightly towards the new Nokia+Windows flagship which has already made quite a hype. On the other side we have Androids v5 coming with lot of expectations and also Galaxy S4. With the hype of Iphone 6 (5S) being rumored BlackBerry's new os doesn't have a chance even with its intuitive ui.
3.The moment someone says blackberry the fist thing that strikes the mind of people is business. Yes blackberry is only targeted for business minded people for their secure usage. This narrows down it's chances even more.
There are 3 of the new open source os coming up this year.
The new Ubuntu, firefox, tizen.
With all these, the competition for the best consumer product and os becomes even more challenging.
