Google kicks some emulators out of the market

Indeed Nesoid, Snedoid und Gameboid are removed.

Compared to Apple, Google is very slacky by the inclusion of programs in their own App Store. There are no past examination.


This does not mean Google hasn't any rules. As you can see there is a report on "Android Police".
So now all channels of the developer Yong Zhang were removed from the market, deleted the associated account. Zhang had focused on the emulators and here among other Nesoid, SNesoid GameBoid and various apps offering.


The question of why Google has now decided to distance, one can only speculate, because the company does not comment on individual cases.


The community also suspected in a row as quickly the pressure of the games industry, which in recent years, again and again - has taken action against emulators - but with very changeable success. After all, before not too long ago with the emulator PSX4Droid also another developer was thrown out of the market. 


However, there is also another possible explanation: On Reddit there is a discussion, that Zhang might violate the license of the free software licence GPL.
After all his emulators are based quite clearly on free software, but Zhang didn't make his code public and also didn't make it clear where he got it.


NVIDIA presents their "Kal-El" – Quadcore in a 4 minute video

In a four minute video, NVIDIA shows what "Kal-El" – Quadcore has to offer.
The demo is about "dynamic lightning" which is a big point in this movie. Indeed, it looks very good.
"Kal-El" should have a five times higher perfomance than the Tegra 2 Dualcore.
As can be seen in the video, the game isn't playable with a dual core.  The power with the quad core makes the light effect run smoothly. The release date of this game should be in August.


Pay with Google

The rumors came true.Google presented their NFC payment service official yesterday.
It will pay in the future ( but of course only once in the U.S.) simply with your mobile phone. Google Wallet is then "connected" with your creditcard and it allows them to select an app and use to pay for.

Chomp vs Google Market Search

I don't know how google was able to code such a bad search software. As a searchmachine company, they could do it better.
Someone thought so do and developed the App Chomp. Chomp returns much more relative results and the interface is much nicer than the Android Market App as well. All in all it seems the app is very nice
but if you don't find what you are looking for don't foreclose the Google Android Market.


Android with new security problems!!!

Currently there is a new securityhole in Android.
If a Android device logs in a wlan access point, the attacker is be able to get access to your calender, contacts or in your picture folder.

I don't want to scare you. There must be serveral factors.

Factor #1: the attacker must be logged in the same access point like you are. For instance in an opened access point  in a coffee shop.

Factor #2 : The synchronisation to google must be activated.

Factor #3: If there is a synchronisation the attacker must get the token from it. With this token he is able to get access to the Android device. So it's possible too to upload data to this device.
But who is really affected?
Every device which isn't upgraded to 2.3.4 or higher .Only the third party app Picasa (google isn't responsible for this app) has this security hole.

Those who do not currently use the latest version and still want to go use a free Wi-Fi, should'nt share data to google


Android Malware Alert!!!

A lot of apps from the Android-Market were determinted to subscribe premium services, if the smartphone user was in China. The evil apps send automaticly SMS messages which subscribe a premium service.
The user wouldn't notice that because this evil app will delete the text message before he is going to read it.

Affected are the following: Match, 3D Cube horror terrible, ShakeBanger, Shake Break, Sea Ball, iMine, iCalendar, LoveBaby, iCartoon and iBook.
Google has reacted and deleted those apps from the market.
This wasn't the first time when Google deleted apps from their market. Last March they deleted 50apps from their store.

Google I/O Developer Conference

Today the Google I/O Developer Conference starts and we will get interesting news about Android.
So probably google will present  their new product Google music which will be interesting.

Google will allow you to upload till 20.000 songs, which you can stream to your mobile phone when you are on the go. It's like a harddisk (cloud) in the internet, where you can save your record collection.
Among other things google will generate automatic playlsit due to your hearing habits.

It looks like the negotiation between record companies and google failed., which was planed.

Google music will start the next week. You might need an invite as it was for google wave.

More information we will get during this day.

Samsung Galaxy S : Gingerbread available again!

Two weeks ago Samsung delivered Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) for Galaxy S. For unknown reasons Google stopped this update.
After the delivery stop there were two questions. Why did Google stop the update and when will it get online again?
SamFirmware gave us the answer to the second question. They wrote a message on Twitter that the update would be online in the middle of May again.

It looks like Samsung doesnt want to wait so long. A friend of mine told me yesterday that he was able to update his phone with Kies (Gingerbread 2.3.3). I haven't tried it yet ,but in boards you can read that users got their update via Kies.
It seems like, the update is avaiable again :)


First look at Samsungs TouchWiz UX User Interface

I can't wait for Android 3.0.
Samsung made their own UI for the Touchwiz UX Tablet. It doesn't look bad.
But you can see the video below that the perfomance isn't good. Samsung still needs to do something.
