Android Phone powered by MicrosoftThe last few weeks have been rough for Microsoft and especially Windows Phone users. Microsoft finally admitted that Windows Phone was now just for enterprises and the company will focus on enterprise features. Of course, this didn’t come as a shock since the market share has been declining and companies have been dropping support for Windows Phone. We also saw rumors floating on the internet claiming that the Redmond giant might be planning to move to Android. While those rumors were fake, we decided to imagine what if Microsoft decided to make an Android device or a company decided to bundle Microsoft services on their Android device. For this, we came up with a list of apps/services from Microsoft that could replace their Google counterparts. Before moving forward, below is the list of core services which can’t be replaced or which doesn’t have any replacement available from Microsoft...Full details plus download links to all the apps to run on your Android device can be found on OUR FORUM.

What is HashgraphBlockchain technology emerged in response to the collapse of several banking institutions in 2008. It proposed a new monetary system intended to take away the control of money supply, relying solely on a peer-to-peer electronic cash system, designed specifically for the digital realm. This online currency system was believed to be a better monetary system until some started talking about Hashgraph. Hashgraph is said to be a more robust system. Its consensus algorithm provides a new platform for distributed consensus. Some of the attributes commonly used to refer or describe Blockchain are distributed, transparent, consensus-based, transactional and flexible. Hashgraph bears all these features. However, it is a data structure and consensus algorithm that is much faster, fairer, and more secure than blockchain. It is described as future of distributed ledger technology. It uses two special techniques to achieve fast, fair and secure consensus. Blockchain technology is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions. However, it can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value. Information held on a blockchain exists as shared and is continually reconciled/updated. This ensures the records/data it holds are identical across the network and not stored in any individual location. As such, the blockchain cannot be controlled by any single entity. Second, it has no single point of failure...A detailed explanation can be found on OUR FORUM.

apple mr headsetApple is working on an Augmented Reality headset is now an open secret, after the device was all but confirmed by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.

The headset is said to be code-named “T288”, with its development scattered across 1 Infinite Loop. According to Gurman Apple is being “very aggressive” with its timeline and expect the headset to ship by 2020.

android security threatAttacks on three fronts ensure attackers have all the information they need to steal banking details in the latest evolution of the Marcher malware, warn researchers. Attackers are combining credential phishing, credit card data theft, and malware into a single campaign targeting banking details. While it's common to see attacks involving phishing or malware, the combination of these tactics in a single campaign targeting Android devices of financial services and banking customers indicates the extent to which attackers are willing to play a longer game in order to get to their goal. The attacks combine phishing with the distribution of the Marcher Android trojan, a form of banking malware which has been active since at least late 2013. Lures previously used to distribute Marcher include a fake software update, a fake security update, and a fake mobile game. The attacks begin with phishing emails containing a shortened link to a fake version of the Bank Austria login page, which has been registered to a number of different domains containing 'bankaustria' in the title, in an effort to trick the user into believing they're visiting the official site...Read all the details on OUR FORUM.

hololens patentOne of the best features of the Microsoft HoloLens is placing virtual objects firmly fixed into a real space and finding those objects still in the same place when you leave and return. This impressive ability, which gives virtual objects some real-world permanence, is due to the HoloLens creating a spacial map of an area the first time you enter it, and then using that data to fix objects in space in relation to its environment.  The map is stored on the device and then recalled when you re-enter the area. In a 2017 augmented reality patent, Microsoft proposes to speed up the tedious process of the first scan by storing the results online and then sharing it with other HoloLens owners, meaning instead of having to recreate the surface map each time a new user enters an area they could simply access an existing one...Complete details can be found on our FORUM.
