Ford's Smart Car Software Launchs

Not only smart mobile phones, now there's smart cars too. Ford, one of the American's car manufacturer announced at 2013 CES the auto industry’s first open mobile app development program, called the Ford Developer Program, making it easier for developers to create apps for drivers to use safely from behind the wheel.

The software is named OpenXC. The aim is to facilitate developers to create applications that can be installed on an operating system that has been mounted on the Ford cars.

Based on these data, developers could design the commercial applications to be offered to the car owners. Meanwhile, the car owner could get the readable information that displayed by the application.

The developers will also get hardware in the form of CAN translator, which could translate data from various sensors in the car, such as speed sensors, in order to be understood more easily.

Computer Virus Could be Rampant in Medical Equipment

Computer experts from the UK found that there are more than 8,000 types of viruses ready to attack computers and medical equipment health. They revealed that viral infection may be so severe that patients may ultimately died of a computer system in a medical analysis can not be changed, because the virus attacked software section.

Computer experts at one of the leading hospitals in the United States revealed that the experts managed to remove a virus attack in a week on two machines computer center. This warning has been given as part of a panel discussion in Washington DC, as reported by Technology Review of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Mark Olsen, chief security officer at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, said the hospital has 664 medical devices that operate on older versions of the Windows operating system. This means that medical devices have drawbacks because it can be attacked by a virus on its Windows system.

Experts say it can be difficult to upgrade 
old software on medical devices due
to regulatory restrictions. (Picture from:

Professor Kevin Fu, a leading expert in medical technology from UK explained that when the machine is infected with the virus do not always have updated equipment because of fears the threat. However, if left unchecked, it means breaking the rules imposed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Where is the FDA approved the use of technology for security testing, the software against cyber threats needs to be improved. Imagine if we had a medical monitors that run with Windows systems that have been infected by a computer virus, it will slow down operations.

"Conventional malware rampant in hospitals because of medical equipment using un-patched operating system. There is little way to the hospital when the producers refused to allow the (operating system) update or security patch," said Prof. Fu. There are also concerns, medical devices could even end up being part of a botnet (a huge network of hijacked computers that are often used to send spam email).

Medical devices can be affected by the slow performance when infected, Prof. Fu told the BBC. "Imagine if you had a heart monitor device that runs Windows system and infected by a virus, the computer slows oprasional. Slowing computer course can lead to death. Sensor readings, and even analysis can be chaotic."

He said that there was no evidence of malware attacks on medical machines as a result of being targeted by hackers. Instead, he said it was more likely due to "collateral damage" of conventional malware designed to infect normal PC. "What we found is that the medical computer software has brought tremendous benefits for treatment. However, we forget that there are other threats that attack the risk of software," he said. *** [BBC | DEDI RISKOMAR | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 22112012]

Anti-Theft Alarm for iPhone

The owners of the iPhone is certainly a little more worried if their expensive gadgets was stolen. Well, Apple has now patented anti-theft mechanism that will sound an alarm if the smartphone is stolen.

Explanations related technology patents filed with the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States last week (11/11) revealed that the anti-theft system that Apple works by detecting motion patterns of smartphones.

The title of the patent is "Acceleration-based theft detection system for portable electronic devices" or based theft detection system motion speed ​​for portable electronic devices. According to sources in the patent office, the alarm will be active once the smartphone is concerned detected a "condition of theft". These conditions are determined by the built-in accelerometer, combined with software that will decide whether a condition fit the "profile characteristic of theft" or not. Of explanation, imagine that the iPhone will be equipped with this technology "scream" when taken from their owners by violence, such mugged.
Apple is looking for a patent on a automatic alarm for the Apple iPhone. (Picture from: http://www.phonearena.com/)
Accelerometer itself used to detect how users holding his smartphone, so it can be used to detect join other matters related to the movement of the phone. Why did Apple feel necessary to patent this technology? The reason, according to Apple, is that miniaturization electronic device trend. "Rightful owners become increasingly easier to bring the device to all places, as well as thieves," wrote Apple in patent filings.

"An acceleration sensor detects the acceleration of a portable electronic device, and a controller analyzes this acceleration to determine whether a theft condition is present," Apple explains in its patent application. "If so, an alarm can be initiated. The theft prevention system can include a filter for attenuating irrelevant acceleration frequencies and isolating those representative of theft, and comparison hardware/software for determining whether the detected acceleration matches a known acceleration profile characteristic of theft. Various parameters of the theft prevention system can also be set by a user through mechanisms such as a graphical user interface."

In order to prevent or reduce false alarms, the security mechanism would filter out acceleration signals corresponding to shock or impact, which would occur if you drop your device. There's a special signal filter and theft detection circuitry to address false alarms. If a possible theft is detected, the user has a set amount of time to enter an alphanumeric passcode before the alarm sounds and/or the user is locked out of the device.

In the last two weeks, Apple has been granted the rights to at least 34 patents, including 3D video applications on mobile devices, how to play the content on the Apple TV, and the background changes to Apple's iChat video conferencing applications. However, a patent will not necessarily be realized in the finished product. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TRIBUN JABAR 18112012]

There are three operating systems are launched, namely Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT. Windows 8 is the most basic version intended for general users, Windows 8 Pro is intended for professionals, and Windows RT is Windows 8 specifically for ARM-based mobile devices.

Computers with Windows 8 operating system can run on any older versions Windows Office application. While Windows-based devices RT can only run applications designed specifically from the Windows Store.

Windows 8 Installation takes about 10 minutes. If the upgrade is performed on a Windows 7-based devices, personal files and settings to an earlier application can still be used.
Windows 8 screenshot. (Picture from: http://www.howtogeek.com/)
Windows 8 interface using the new pattern. Icons that had changed little boxy rectangular box that continues to date. This is similar to the view outside the widget function continues to change with it.

On the right side of the screen there is a Charm feature. Contents of a setting, search, move the display screen, and share content. Its function is to facilitate navigation from one view to another view.

Although designed specifically for a touch screen, Windows 8 can still be operated on a computer with a mouse and keyboard shortcuts. The goal is transition to the new system is not too surprising.

Here's music video of Windows 8 commercial song, Everything At Once by Lenka.
If you want to install Windows 8. First, you’ll want to make sure that your PC can run Windows 8, and thankfully the Windows 8 system requirements are basically the same as Windows 7. You can probably get away with installing this on a PC with lousy specs, but obviously you’ll have a better experience on a faster machine. Here’s the specs:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
  • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch
Just head to dev.windows.com and download the ISO images from the page. Then head to the Microsoft Store page and download the USB/DVD Download Tool, which can put the ISO image onto a bootable flash drive for installation—all you have to do is choose the ISO, choose the drive, and wait for it to finish copying.

The setup process is nearly identical to Windows 7, so we’re not going to go into detail about it here. We’ll assume if you’re installing Windows 8 that you’re not a newb, and as such you shouldn’t need any help clicking through a couple of installer screens. *** [BUDI RIZA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | KORAN TEMPO 4040]

A dangerous bug was found in the Samsung Galaxy line of mobile phones. Cracks can deleted all data on the phone with just one click.

Cracks were discovered by researchers from the Technical University Berlin, Ravi Borgaonkar. He showed the results of his research at an Internet security conference in Argentina.

The way it works is very simple. Hackers only need to insert the HTML code into a web page, and while Samsung Galaxy users accessing the site, as it is also a code for the full wipe or reset is active.

When examined the code does contain a code to reset the Samsung Galaxy, and the hackers simply enter the code in a web page to activate the code reset automatically.
Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II and Galaxy S. (Picture from: http://www.engadget.com/)
As quoted from Slashgear, Wednesday (09/23/2012), the code can erase all data on the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Ace. However, when the authors tried, the code can also be used on the Galaxy S III.

Mr. Borgaonkar, who reportedly wondered aloud what Samsung’s engineers were smoking when they created the vulnerable system, demonstrates how it works in the video below.
Viewers may need headphones to hear Mr. Borgaonkar clearly, but the shocked audience reaction at 2:10, when he uses a link from a tweet to demonstrate how quickly a malicious web page can reset the phone, is unmistakable.

Well, for those users who are curious about the Galaxy series, do not try typing that shortcut. Because it will reset your phone without any confirmation (option 'yes' or 'no') before! Beware...!!!! *** [SLASHGEAR | BETABEAT | DIGITAL SPY]

The agency expose a number of security-related risks users. Among other things, relatively easily intercepted satellite telephone, data sent via satellite could hardly be encrypted, and the device is also often sends the user's location in the form of data the GPS satellite coordinates.

In areas of conflict, particularly the war zone, the use of satellite phone can be dangerous. Frequently humanitarian activists and journalists became targets of the regime who feel aggrieved by their activity. The agency provides a number of tips that can be used to reduce risk. *** [AHMAD F | MOBILEACTIVE | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 13092012]
