How crooks and legit services exploit mobile devices












It requires the ability to unpackage and repackage apps. It's not exceptionally tricky, but it does require some knowledge of how the Android system works." Metrics from Juniper Networks, in fact, show that the appearance of malicious apps moving across the Internet is on a steep growth curve. Juniper intercepted 276,259 malicious mobile apps in the 12 months ending March 31, a 614% increase over the earlier comparable year. That measure excludes the surge of legit apps that do not necessarily take full control as malicious apps do but, nonetheless, freely tap into location, contacts and calendar information. In an analysis of the 400 most popular free and paid apps on the iOS and Android platforms, Appthority found 83% of those apps are associated with security risks and privacy issues. IOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. Some 91% of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, compared with 80% of Android apps. One plausible explanation is that app developers and advertisers are putting a premium on profile information about Apple owners' whereabouts, contacts and calendar entries, says Appthority's Guerra. Such nosy profiling is translating into waves of spam and obnoxious pop-up ads appearing on mobile devices. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.usatoday.com/story/cybertruth/2013/07/31/how-bad-guys-and-legit-services-exploit-mobile-devices/2602575/





The Drowning brings a true hardcore FPS experience to mobile devices [interview]



Like the mainframe, which was said to be dead decades ago but has remained a meaningful business, the PC will almost certainly cheat death. True, mobile devices like the iPad will continue to gore PC sales. Those mobile devices, though, will most likely never satisfy spreadsheet masters, film editors and other workers who depend on multiple screens and the precision of a keyboard and mouse. Still, there is a strong view among many longtime tech executives that the PCs relevance will steadily diminish. In my humble opinion, the PC as we have known it is in a continuous decline and being relegated to a utility device for businesses, said Hector Ruiz, the former chief executive of Advanced Micro Devices, a company that makes chips for PCs and other devices. The mood around the PC industry has become increasingly glum. The business is effectively in a recession, and there is no upturn in sight. During the second quarter of the year, global PC shipments fell about 11 percent, for their fifth consecutive quarter of declines, the worst downturn since the advent of the PC more than 30 years ago. Intel, supplier of the chips in most PCs, and Microsoft, which makes the Windows operating system on the vast majority of those machines, have delivered disappointing financial results. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.startribune.com/business/217680861.html





Mobile revolution





And through all of the horror-themed gunplay, theres a truly innovative experience to be had here, and one that sets out to redefine the way we shoot things on our smartphones. I recently had a chance to speak with Ben Cousins, the General Manager at Scattered Entertainment and the man in charge behind The Drowning, to get some deeper insights about the many challenges of bringing a hardcore FPS experience to the mobile touchscreen. Cousins has had an impressive history in the games industry before his work with Scattered Entertainment, including his influential role as Executive Producer on the popular Battlefield franchise, before moving on to manage such games as Battlefield Play4Free with Easy Studio. So not only is Cousins fully versed from one of the most successful FPS series to date, but he certainly knows a thing or two about free-to-play games as well: an element that is becoming especially crucial to mobile gaming today. Even though were seeing more and more in-depth and console quality titles beginning to turn up on the mobile platform these days, smartphones and tablets as gaming devices are still fundamentally geared towards casual audiences of gamers. So for a gritty and realistic FPS like The Drowning, how would Scattered Entertainment compensate for the often simplistic and easily accessible nature thats often associated with todays best mobile games, while still staying true to the games true hardcore nature? Cousins tells me that one of his biggest goals with The Drowning was to make it as swift and brutal a gaming experience as possible. Players will immediately be able to jump into the action after downloading the game, without having to sit through an introductory story or cinematics that bog down most other big-name console shooters. The big idea is that players will still be able to make continuous progress in the game, even if theyre only able to have small micro gaming sessions that span several minutes at a time (you know, just in case you need to get your monster-killing fix in during your lunch break at work!). This quick burst of gameplay has become one of the definitive factors of mobile gaming in 2013, and Scattered Entertainment has decided to adhere to this format head-on. Because of this, The Drowning features short, separated missions, as opposed to a more drawn-out or open world campaign. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.gamezebo.com/news/2013/08/01/drowning-brings-true-hardcore-fps-experience-mobile-devices-interview





How to Get Movies, Music, and More From Your Mobile Device to Your TV





And, with one of these five methods, you'll be able to seamlessly throw music and movies from your little screen to your big screen. S AirPlay For iOS users, AirPlay is the way to go. This proprietary firmware suite created by Apple allows users to to wirelessly stream audio, video, and image data from their device (for the purpose of this article, assume we're talking about phones, tablets, phablets, laptops, and anything else not tethered to the wall with a power cord) to the television using your home Wi-Fi network. Originally dubbed AirTunes back in 2004 when it only streamed audio among Apple-built devices, the protocol has since evolved to support visual data (read: videos) as well as display mirroring capabilities (what shows up on your device shows up on the TV in real time), and has been licensed to a large number of third-party manufacturers like Bose, Bowers & Wilkins, Philips, and Pioneer so that their gadgets can receive AirPlay signals. See, there are two types of Airplay devices: Senders, basically any iOS 4.2-plus device running iTunes (and Mountain Lion or later for display mirroring), which transmit the content, and Receivers, any AirPlay-enabled device that actually plays the transmitted signalbe it an AirPort Express, Apple TV, or any of the third-party devices mentioned earlier. The sending unit can also be used to remotely control the playback but requires you to boot up the separate Remote app . Connecting your iOS device to your Apple TV is relatively simple: Connect both to your home network Double tap the home key to pull up Recently Used Apps Double swipe, left to right, to pull up the AirPlay menu and select the proper receiving device (say, your Apple TV) Press play Check out Apple's AirPlay support page for complete details on which generation of devices are required for the system's various playback schemes. The bottom line: It's an ideal solution if you've got an iOS-centric ecosystem, but it's not compatible with any other platform, and not compatible with all apps even within iOS (you need a third-party application like Airfoil to get Spotify from your desktop to your AirPlay device, for instance). S Chromecast For folks that don't use iOS or don't own an Apple TV, Google's brand new Chromecast system is a solid option. This platform-agnostic dongle connects to your TV through an HDMI plug, and pulls down whatever you're watching on your device from the cloud, playing it on your TV. You can also mirror what's in your Chrome browser directly. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://gizmodo.com/how-to-get-movies-music-and-more-from-your-mobile-dev-911342000





MokiMobility Launches First Purposed Device Management Mobile Application for iPhone





Not Apple, not Microsoft, not Google, or any other company trying to enter these well-established mobile application and device ecosystems, Canonical's Ubuntu included. Now all of that being said, Microsoft and Google are well positioned to introduce devices to market with either their own OEM branding in conjunction with ODMs or those released in ODM labeling such as Samsung's. Based on what we've been hearing about in the news, Apple is heavily investing in semiconductor technology and will own more and more of their own production capacity and component designs. All signs are that some form of ARM-based platform convergence from Cupertino will occur sometime in the future. When that occurs it is hard to say. I think we are still in the early stages of convergence, but it is going to become more and more important as the back-end services become richer and shift computational power and business logic from the device to the Cloud. The tipping point will come sooner than we will all think, and there will be reactionary measures taken by some device manufacturers to compensate for this whereas others will have been planning and preparing for it for quite some time. The Ubuntu Edge has some very specific challenges, although I personally would like to see them achieve their full $32M crowd-sourced funding target because it would be a massive wake-up call for the entire industry. It would accelerate discussion of convergence and it would cease to become a "should we" issue and would become a "how do we" issue. I cannot truly speak for what is going to happen with the Edge and I think we have to view that product as a test-bed for people willing to be early cutting-edge early adopters and not regular end-users that consume these sorts of products in very high volumes. Based on the specifications the Edge's hardware looks impressive. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.zdnet.com/the-one-device-is-the-natural-evolution-of-post-pc-7000018866/





Mobile Application Deployment Hampered by Cost, Security Concerns





comScore reports that mobile devices drove 10.8 percent of traffic to online retail sites on Cyber Monday 2011, more than double the previous year. Interestingly, mobile devices accounted for even more online traffic on Black Friday 14.3 percent. The most popular device for mobile commerce? The iPad. Clearly, with the ongoing proliferation of browsers and devices that can access your content and commerce offerings, the mobile web opens up a vast new audience of potential visitors to your site. In fact, Gartner predicts mobile will be the number one Internet access device as early as next year. So the question becomes, what are you doing to optimize your mobile website? Your standard website may be performing extremely well, but you'll need to re-think what constitutes a successful site when you dive into the mobile web, because mobile is different. Analyses of consumer behavior have shown that mobile users have different needs and expectations than desktop users. The "on-the-go" environment, task-at-hand, and physical device constraints all differ, often dramatically. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.1to1media.com/view.aspx?docid=34411





As mobile devices prosper, can the PC industry rebound?





Cassandra Mason reports How are we using our mobile devices? Global information company Nielsen's online retail report found 45 per cent of the 1.8 million Kiwi online shoppers now use a mobile device to browse for goods and services on the internet. Another 26 per cent have made an online purchase on their device. Of the shoppers, 288,000 used their smartphones and 239,000 used a tablet. The research revealed most smartphone shopping happened during the day. Tablet usage spiked in the evening. Nearly two-thirds of all tablet owners and 19 per cent of smartphone owners have made a purchase online. And with 1.7 million Kiwi smartphone owners, there's a lot of room to grow, says Nielsen's associate director of research Tony Boyte. Mobile devices are convenient, immediate and paving the way for more Kiwi consumers to shop online from a variety of locations, he says. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.rotoruadailypost.co.nz/news/mobile-revolution/1964290/





Mobile devices invade the workplace of the tech savvy, says IGS





The survey found that there is a range of factors impeding the deployment and adoption of enterprise applications on mobile devices, with 65 percent of CIOs blaming delays on development costs, 63 percent citing security concerns, and just under half (48 percent) worried about increased cost of support and maintenance. "Why arent more enterprise apps available on any device? We all want apps and data to be available to employees when they need them using the tools that are available at that time," Matt Bancroft, co-founder and COO for Mobile Helix, said in a statement. "Companies need to bridge app silos in the enterprise and ensure applications work in both fixed and mobile to deliver a seamless converged 'app' experience." In addition, 87 percent of CIOs said their employees want more access to enterprise data and applications on their mobile devices. It also provided evidence that enterprises recognize the efficiency gains that mobile can deliver, with CIOs expecting there would be a 36 percent increase in productivity across the business if key enterprise applications were mobilized. "Users expect critical data and applications to be available on any device and in any context, both in mobile and fixed environments, in the way that is most familiar and convenient to them," Bancroft continued. "CIOs understand the obvious benefits of empowering employees and making them more productive, yet only a small proportion of enterprise apps and critical data are currently mobilized." The survey also found 71 percent of companies have taken steps to develop applications for mobile use, with a further 20 percent planning to develop applications for mobile use in the near future. On average, companies had more than 400 custom and packaged applications within their organization. However, only a small proportion (22 percent) of enterprise applications can actually be accessed from mobile devices despite the fact that 86 percent of companies have developed standard web applications, and over half (53 percent) of enterprise applications are now browser-based, suggesting there is an opportunity to mobilize relatively easily and cost-effectively. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.eweek.com/mobile/mobile-application-deployment-hampered-by-cost-security-concerns/





How to Optimize Your Website for Mobile Devices





They are also actively seeking industry news and conducting research about technology issues and products. When asked if a tablet is their primary computer, respondents in Middle East/Africa led the way at 43% followed by respondents in Latin America and Asia Pacific at around 30% each. Users in North America and Western Europe came in at 19% and 18%, respectively, said IGS. Mobile users are serious prospects On average, 56% of smartphone users use their devices to make purchases and 73% of tablet users make purchases with their devices, but in each case the vast majority buy personal products or services rather than those intended for work purposes, the firm found. A few regional figures stand out: 75% buy with a smartphone in North America and 84% purchase with a tablet. In every region, a majority of tablet users said they have made a purchase with their device. At the information gathering stage, 33% of smartphone users click or interact with an advertisement and almost 21% do so on a tablet. "Mobile and tablet are becoming the preferred media consumption devices and are relied upon as users move from research to purchase," said Christina Carstensen, director of mobile strategy at IDG. "Users expect an experience tailored for a mobile screen when they access content on the go, so mobile optimization will be important for both marketers and media companies." Many respondents currently without a tablet will not be so for much longer as 47% said they plan to buy one within 2013. "These findings should remove some of the doubt over the impact of mobile ads and the hesitancy to spend more on mobile marketing," said Matthew Yorke, CEO at IDG. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20130801PR203.html

The Halozyme enzyme, called rHuPH20, was being used in the study to facilitate absorption of the ViroPharma drug Cinryze, when injected under the skin. Cinryze is approved as an intravenous treatment to prevent swelling and painful attacks in teenagers and adults with hereditary angioedema - a rare and potentially fatal genetic disorder caused by the deficiency of a protein in blood. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration denied approval to a Baxter drug using the technology last August, citing safety issues. The FDA then put a hold on the ViroPharma drug trial before lifting it in September. Halozyme and ViroPharma said on Thursday the trial was being stopped as a precautionary measure as the antibodies were not associated with any adverse clinical effects and were of unknown clinical significance. Halozyme said it was confident about the safety of its technology. ViroPharma said it now expected to conduct a late-stage trial with an alternative, low-volume, subcutaneous formulation of Cinryze, in the same timeframe that it had expected to move forward with the Halozyme combination of the drug. Halozyme shares were down 17 percent at $7.10 in mid-morning trading on the Nasdaq. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/01/viropharma-study-halt-idUSL4N0G23VE20130801









Olsen, 72, says the writing styles used in technology and handwriting conflict. Texts and instant messages require use of communication English, while writing requires use of standard English, she says. "To achieve in the world, people need to use standard (English)." But the irony is that Olsen, who communicates via text message on her iPhone, says Handwriting Without Tears must be tech-savvy to remain competitive. In addition to its workbooks, the company offers an electronic teaching guide and an app. "At work we have technology up the kazoo," she says. Nation of adults who will write like children? Francis Smith, a bank officer living in Gibraltar, says that while technology allows instantaneous communication, he is nostalgic about handwriting due to its permanence and tangibility. "If there is no electricity, none of (technology) will work," he says. "Notebooks have served us for a couple thousand years." Smith, a former civil servant, used to write for work, but has spent the last 23 years typing on a PC. He says it has negatively impacted his handwriting to the point that people would never guess he won a handwriting contest when he was a child. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/26/tech/web/impact-technology-handwriting

Mobile App Rollouts Stymied by Security, Costs Complexity: Study





The FTC alleged that HTC failed to take reasonable steps to secure the software it developed for its smartphones and tablet computers. According to the FTC, HTCs failures introduced various security flaws that placed consumers sensitive information at risk. The FTCs action against HTC signals the agencys continued focus on data security and data privacy issues and use of its broad Section 5 authority, which the FTC has repeatedly asserted against various organizations, including its ongoing litigation with Wyndham Hotels. The HTC case also reiterates the agencys strong interest in securing mobile networks,[link to blog regarding mobile apps], now that mobile phones, which are full of sensitive contact, financial, and other personal information, have become so prevalent. Companies may be asking what HTC actually did to warrant this FTC action. The FTC claims that HTC, when customizing the software on mobile devices, failed to provide its staff with sufficient security training, failed to review or test the software on its mobile devices for potential security vulnerabilities, failed to follow commonly accepted secure coding practices, and did not have a process for receiving and addressing vulnerability reports from third parties. In particular, the FTC asserted that HTC devices potentially permitted malicious applications to send text messages, record audio, and install additional malware onto a consumers device, without the users consent or even knowledge. These malicious applications allegedly could access financial and medical information and other sensitive information such as a users geolocation and text message content. In particular, in the case of Android devices, the FTC claimed that HTC pre-installed a custom application that could download and install applications outside the normal Android installation process. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/ftc-orders-mobile-device-maker-to-patch-99702





Silicon Image Introduces New UltraGig™ 6400-Based GameChanger Accessory Reference Designs for Mobile Devices





Article by: NICK WINGFIELD , New York Times Updated: July 30, 2013 - 7:32 PM Theories vary about the scale of the effect that portable devices are having on PCs. During the second quarter, global PC shipments fell about 11 percent, for their fifth consecutive quarter of declines. Photo: James Best Jr., New York Times + add a comment add a comment SEATTLE The death of the personal computer may be an exaggeration. But the industry around personal computers seems to be in limbo. Like the mainframe, which was said to be dead decades ago but has remained a meaningful business, the PC will almost certainly cheat death.

The mood around the PC industry has become increasingly glum. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.startribune.com/business/217680861.html





MokiMobility Launches First Purposed Device Management Mobile Application for iPhone



The company said the CS8 is now able to perform data throughput, voice quality, location based services and mobility testing for chipsets and mobile devices that support TD-LTE. The tester can emulate MIMO-enabled cells for both the TDD and FDD flavors of LTE networks simultaneously within a single instrument. Spirent also integrated its DatumLab solution--a lab-based evolution of the Datum measurement tool--with the CS8 for data performance measurement of LTE devices using FDD and TDD. The company said its CS8 also integrates Spirent's Nomad HD measurement system to enable voice quality performance analysis of HD Voice services in TD-LTE networks. The system is certified under the Perceptual Objective Listening Quality Assessment (POLQA), also known as ITU-T Rec. P.863. Further, the CS8 enables support for TD-LTE A-GPS over-the-air testing to provide validation of GPS performance in mobile devices. In early July, Anritsu announced that the Global Certification Forum (GCF) had confirmed that the company's ME7834 mobile device test platform offers the highest number of validated protocol conformance test cases for TD-LTE, including interworking with TD-SCDMA and GSM. In June, the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) announced that nearly 950 LTE-enabled devices have been announced for use on LTE networks, including 200 that can operate using the TD-LTE mode. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.fiercebroadbandwireless.com/story/spirent-adds-td-lte-mobile-device-testing/2013-07-31

FTC Orders Mobile Device Maker to Patch Up Its Software Security





The company, an enterprise application and data security platform provider, hired market research firm Vanson Bourne to survey 300 IT decision makers in the United States and the United Kingdom. The latter found, it said in a July 31 report, "Despite a clear understanding of the benefits and drivers from the end-user community, companies have not mobilized many applicationsand a larger percentage are delaying full deployment of enterprise apps on mobile devices due to concerns around cost, complexity and security." Of the CIOs surveyed, 87 percent said their employees want more access to data and apps on devices. They also estimated that a 36 percent increase in productivity would likely result from mobilizing key applications. On average, the CIOs reported having 400 custom and packaged apps within their organizations, but that only 22 percent of these were accessible from mobile devices. Moving in the right direction, however slowly, 71 percent said their companies were taking steps toward developing apps for mobile use, while 20 percent said they were planning to, eventually. Why the hold up? Development costs were blamed by 65 percent of the CIOs; security costs were pointed to by 63 percent; and 48 percent also said they were also nervous about the increased support and maintenance costs that would come with new apps. Participants also said that they worried about mobilizing legacy enterprise apps that don't include support for touch or swipe, for fear of offering a sub-par user experience on devices with these capabilities. Further, only 32 percent of those surveyed said they believe they have the skills to develop native apps, while nearly 50 percent said they already had developed a native app but would hesitate to do it again, given the time, cost and complexity of the project. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.eweek.com/mobile/mobile-app-rollouts-stymied-by-security-costs-complexity-study.html

Gadgets galore: Droid Maxx vs. Galaxy S4; Nexus 7 vs. iPad Mini












For the first time, there was no need to use a controller to play video games. As Microsoft's marketing slogan goes, you are the controller. Now Kinect not only supports motion input, but voice input too. Why it's innovative: Kinect is just the beginning. Imagine Kinect-like technology coming standard with your TV or gaming consoles. It'll make in-home entertainment much more immersive. The remote control is dead. As the kid in "Back to the Future: Part 2" said, "You mean you have to use your hands? That's like a baby's toy." The Walkman helped people listen to music outside of their homes and cars. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.sfgate.com/technology/businessinsider/article/The-14-Most-Innovative-Gadgets-Of-All-Time-4668957.php









Looking purely at the spec sheet, it looks like the Motorola Droid Maxx is the best phone for people who want an exceptionally long battery life, a less cluttered Google Android experience, and some pretty cool gesture and voice activated controls. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S4 might be better suited for the smartphone subscriber, who must have a cutting edge, fast processor. Or someone who wants a clearer and more vibrant screen and a proven top of the line camera. What's more, because the Galaxy S4 is Samsung's flagship phone, anyone interested in this device must be comfortable with the added features and software experience that comes as part of the Samsung TouchWiz software. So what should you do? It sounds like battery life is very important to you, so definitely consider the Droid Maxx. But before you make a decision and sign a new two-year Verizon contract, wait until the Droid Maxx is properly reviewed. After all, the super long battery life comes at a price. With a two-year contract, the device will sell for $299 starting August 20. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is $199 with a two-year contract. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57595607-94/gadgets-galore-droid-maxx-vs-galaxy-s4-nexus-7-vs-ipad-mini/

Surf report: New photo gadgets for best summer shots





What if there's a chance the adventure will damage your camera? Solving a dilemma many hikers, backpackers and boaters face, Lowepro introduced a pair of bags to its DryZone line in June. With an IPX6 waterproof rating, the 40-liter backpack ($230) and 20-liter duffel ($150) are protected against the powerful projection of water from jets in all directions. The rating falls short of immersion, making these bags ideal for boating trips or even dogsleds, according to the company. For the last few years, Lowepro has been championing the bag-within-bag design, keeping the individual parts (e.g., a removable padded compartment within a larger camping bag) functional and modular. With the DryZone line, it's more like a camera bag within an oversized dry bag, which features handles, straps and a roll top with buckles to keep water out. Though the bags have different capacities, they hold roughly the same amount of photography gear: a full-frame camera with an attached lens, one to two additions lenses and other accessories. The difference lies in the size of the dry bag, which offers space for personal items, such as clothing, making the larger backpack ideal for more-demanding adventures and the duffel for photo day trips. Sandisk's Connect Wireless Media Drive starts at $80. (Photo: Alice Truong for USA TODAY) Wireless drives for streaming media Moving with industry trends, SanDisk introduced two wireless drives in July for consumers to access, view and transfer videos and photos to/from their mobile devices. The Connect Wireless Flash Drive (beginning at $50 GB for 16GB) is a bulky thumb drive that can simultaneously connect to eight devices and stream to three. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/2013/07/26/photo-gadgets-film-smartphone-lens-waterproof/2587083/





Lighter, more powerful gadgets on display at annual Utah trade show for outdoor equipment





(None of them were tested in Consumer Reports labs.) Wrist gadgets Older devices, such as pedometers, simply count your steps, but the newer trackers are designed to continually monitor all of your movements. Some of them can also track your sleep quality and calories burned, and even automatically transfer the information to your smartphone or computer. Some of the gadgets can be worn around the clock, such as the Fitbit Flex ($100), which looks like a wristband. It tracks the number of times you wake up during the night, counts the number of calories youve burned and lets you enter what you eat via online and smartphone tools. The Fitbug Orb ($50; available this summer, according to the manufacturer) can be worn several ways, including on a lanyard (included). The Nike+ FuelBand ($149) lets you set fitness goals, monitor your progress and share the information with others via social media outlets. You can also use it as a watch. You need to be somewhat tech-savvy to use many such devices because they need to be set up properly. Once you start using them, the data are transferred to your computer, tablet or smartphone. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/gadgets-can-track-your-sleep-monitor-eating-habits-and-help-you-stay-fit/2013/07/29/5b9638b6-97e4-11e2-b68f-dc5c4b47e519_story.html

The Most Anticipated Gadgets Of The Year





More than 1,300 manufacturers and suppliers are packing the floor of a Salt Lake City convention hall, plus three outdoor canopy tents. The summer and winter trade shows have been a mainstay in Utah since 1996, drawing consistently larger crowds, although attendance leveled off this year. More than 25,000 people are expected at the trade show this week, many of them retailers, who are placing bulk orders for specialty outdoor shops around the world. Exhibitors were unpacking crates Tuesday, displaying a merchandise bazaar that would make a consumer drool except the public isnt allowed inside. This show has morphed into a mecca for the outdoor action-sports world, says Peter Kray, publisher of the Gear Institute of Santa Fe, N.M., a network of outdoor gear testers and experts who try out and promote the best gear. A number of magazines and websites, including gearjunkie.com, also rate the gear and fashions to come out of the Salt Lake show before the new products hit the mainstream. Krays picks include Smith Chroma Pop lenses awesome color and an improvement on Easton tent poles that nearly doubles their strength and flexibility in heavy winds. Kray also is celebrating a hydration bladder not for water, but whisky or tequila perfect, he says. Even socks have come a long way, with more than 100 companies in a foot race to stich the finest wool blends. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/lighter-more-powerful-gadgets-on-display-at-annual-utah-trade-show-for-outdoor-equipment/2013/07/31/885bec62-f9ee-11e2-89f7-8599e3f77a67_story.html

The incident took place three days ago but came to light when the house owner, Kamaldeep Singh , returned from Amritsar on July 28. Singh said, "I did not receive any message and call that was linked to the safety gadgets when the burglars struck. I have conveyed the same to the company from where these were purchased. When they examined these, it was found that a technical snag had led to the system failure." SHO Balbir Singh said a case was registered and burglary suspects, out on bail, would be quizzed.
