Apple former CEO John Sculley intros low-cost Android smartphones

Because the world will never get enough of new gadgets, it's time for phone makers to come up with unique design or cool features if they want to thrive in an industry that's already saturated. But of course, there are still those who know what geeks really want and how much there are willing to pay, being geeks themselves, like Ammunition who has recently announced the Obi Worldphone. The world phone reference makes it seem like a premium smartphone that can be used anywhere in the world and this one is indeed something you can show off, what with the high-end technologies from Google, Dolby, Sony, Samsung, Qualcomm, Mediatek, Japan Display, and Corning all integrated inside.

TuneIn Radio now offers premium service for $7.99 a month

While of course people would want to choose the free version over a paid one, the trick is to offer something premium and attractive to convince people to switch to a subscription service. TuneIn Radio, which brings you not just music but podcasts and radio programs as well, is offering a new Premium Service for its users and sports fans in particular may be happy.

We still haven’t fully recovered from the fright that Stagefright has given us, when news of another vulnerability called Certifi-gate was revealed by CheckPoint three weeks ago. Now, apparently an app (which of course has since then been shut down) was able to bypass Google’s security measures and got published on the Google Play Store, containing this infection. Recordable Activator is the app, and it apparently was able to use a plugin from TeamViewer that’s why it was able to get past Google.
