Truth be told I never notice the notch on my iPhone X, I really don’t, but I’m guessing that the hole-punch will be a much better solution than what Apple currently offers.
Earlier this year, Samsung was busted for using stock photos to show off capabilities of Galaxy A8’s camera. And now they did it again – they used a stock image taken with a DSLR to fake the camera’s portrait mode. How do I know this, you may wonder? Well, it’s because Samsung used MY photo to do it… More here.
Smartphone brand Motorola has been criticised for revealing a “shameless” copy of the iPhone X as its new model.
Many phone-makers have copied the look of the iPhone X, which has a smaller bezel around the screen and a “notch” at the top that houses a camera.
However, reviewers said the new Motorola P30 was a “brazen” and “egregious” rip-off of Apple’s flagship device… More at the BBC.
Lazy, lazy, lazy. They even copied the wallpaper.
I often hear people criticise iPhone users with a huge degree of ignorance. The presumption that we are all sheep and do not know what we are buying seems commonplace. Steve, however, sent me the video below which takes an opposing view (strong language included!)

I couldn’t do it personally as the mobile experience needs to be 100% personal for me. Also not sure how long this will be allowed.
Personal data for more than 31 million users of an Android keyboard app called AI.type has leaked online, according to ZDNet and researchers at the Kromtech Security Center.
The app’s database server wasn’t password-protected, which meant anyone could access more than 577 gigabytes of personal data, according to the report that was released today. The data was eventually secured after ZDNet attempted to contact the app’s creator, Eitan Fitusi… More at c|net.
Good advert actually and the guy’s haircut in the queue near the end is very funny.
Cybercriminals are known to take advantage of everything that’s popular among people in order to spread malware, and Google’s official Play Store has always proved no less than an excellent place for hackers to get their job done.
Yesterday some users spotted a fake version of the most popular WhatsApp messaging app for Android on the official Google Play Store that has already tricked more than one million users into downloading it… More at The Hacker News.
Maybe the iPhone X is cheap at half the price after all.

If Google could find a way to make Android Wear work fully with iOS, the potential is huge for a raft of watches from Fossil and the like. Can’t see it happening anytime soon though.
The Pixel 2 looks really sweet to me and sometimes I wish I wasn’t so embedded in iOS. For some reason, however, it doesn’t excite it any way…
The Pixel Buds are exciting though and offer something that feels completely new. Not sure about the size or design though.
It is amazing how little of what has been released has filtered outside the tech world. Everyone I know was aware of the iPhone X the day after it was announced. No one I know is aware of the new Google products.
