Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new tool to detect and contain malware that attempts root exploits in Android devices. The tool improves on previous techniques by targeting code written in the C programming language – which is often used to create root exploit malware, whereas the bulk of Android applications are written in Java.

Imagination Technologies is probably best known for its PowerVR graphics processors featured in Apple's wildly popular iOS mobile devices, as PowerVR S-series chips have powered every Apple mobile device since the third-generation iPhone 3GS.
Computer chips keep getting faster because transistors keep getting smaller. But the chips themselves are as big as ever, so data moving around the chip, and between chips and main memory, has to travel just as far. As transistors get faster, the cost of moving data becomes, proportionally, a more severe limitation.
Mohu is probably best known for manufacturing TV antennas such as the indoor Leaf for HDTV.
With Project Tango, Google hopes to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.
The Mele X1000 is an Android TV Box powered by a Telechips TCC8935 dual core processor paired (ARM Cortex A9 @ 1.2GHz + Mali-400MP2 GPU) with 1GB RAM and 4GB Flash.
Walking around the streets searching for a place to eat will be no hassle when a head-mounted display (HMD) becomes affordable and ubiquitous.
"How do I know that the new installed app behaves as described?" asks Andreas Zeller, professor of software engineering at Saarland University. So far experts have identified so-called malicious apps by checking their behavior against patterns of known attacks. "But what if the attack is brand-new?" asks Zeller.

The genius of Google's doodle dalliance is the way it creates so much free publicity, drives traffic, and pushes you to what is essentially a lead generation campaign for a Google ad partner. Does Google really need the free marketing for its home page?
Over the past year or two, TG Daily has reported on a slew of Android-powered set-top-boxes and TV sticks hitting the marketplace.
