Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Smartphone

By Tim

I don’t get all that excited about smartphones, but this particular phone/phablet includes a huge 5300 mAH battery and that makes it worth sharing.

This smartphone has a 1920 x 1080 display on a 6.44 inch screen. It also packs 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB ROM. It is a dual SIM device or you can install a microSD card to add even more storage.

With a 3 day battery life this one is well worth a look, especially considering the price. This video is courtesy of Andrew over at AMDTech.

So let us get to the video here.

This device is current available at Banggood for $269 which is a decent deal considering the specs!

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Tanoshi is a Brand New Child-Friendly Laptop and Tablet, With 10 inch Screen and Android

By Radu Iorga

Tanoshi is a name you haven’t heard of before, but odds are that you’ll remember it, because it stands for a brand new kid friendly hybrid between a tablet and laptop. Tanoshi runs on Android and has a 10 inch screen.

This is a premiere, as it’s dubbed “the first retail computer for children ages 6-12 that offers the full age appropriate Android experience”. It also debuts the Family Link app from Google, which is preinstalled. The Family Link feature lets parents manage the children’s time, by setting daily limits, bedtimes and other such things.

They can approve or deny installs, review the time spent on individual apps and more. The company that came up with the product has roots in Silicon Valley and has been founded by professionals in consumer electronics, software development, mobile and education. A Kickstarter campaign for the product will begin on September 14th, by the way.

 

If you’re wondering about specs, the device packs a 10.1 inch HD touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a 5 megapixel main camera. There’s also a 2 MP front shooter, a 5000 mAh battery and dual stereo speakers. A quad core 64 bit CPU makes everything tick. The physical keyboard gets attached easily when it’ needed. Available in pink, blue and green, the device is priced around $200 and a bit below and it’ll be shipped from December.

More info is found here.

First-known Android DDoS malware infects phones in 100 countries

By Dan Goodin

Enlarge (credit: portal gda)

Last year, a series of record-setting attacks hitting sites including KrebsOnSecurity and a French Web host underscored a new threat that had previously gone overlooked: millions of Internet-connected digital video recorders and similar devices that could easily be wrangled into botnets that challenged the resources of even large security services.

Now, for the first time, researchers are reporting a new platform recently used to wage powerful denial-of-service attacks that were distributed among hundreds of thousands of poorly secured devices: Google’s Android operating system for phones and tablets. The botnet was made up of some 300 apps available in the official Google Play market. Once installed, they surreptitiously conscripted devices into a malicious network that sent junk traffic to certain websites with the goal of causing them to go offline or become unresponsive.

At its height, the WireX botnet controlled more than 120,000 IP addresses located in 100 countries. The junk traffic came in the form of HTTP requests that were directed at specific sites, many of which received notes ahead of time warning of the attacks unless operators paid ransoms. By spreading the attacks among so many phones all over the world and hiding them inside common Web requests, the attackers made it hard for the companies that defend against DDoS attacks to initially figure out how they worked. The attacks bombarded targets with as many as 20,000 HTTP requests per second in an attempt to exhaust server resources.
