Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 21.07.06If you’re a frequent internet user, I’m pretty sure you have a large amount of personal accounts that are not as secure as they could be, some notably due to the catastrophic Heartbleed bug that took the web by storm last week.

Android 4.4.3 tipped by one of Google’s apps

Published on 04/20/2014 by in News

App that helps schools set up tablets mentions Android 4.4.3 in recent changelog

Android 4.4.3 still hasn’t been officially announced or anything, but it’s still officially pinging our servers, and not in a way that suggests it’s just kids playing with their build.prop file. And on April 16 the Google Edu Device Setup app — an official app straight from Google that helps set up tablets purchased through Google Apps for Education — was updated for Android 4.4.3 support.

IRL: Kogan’s Agora HD, a $189 smartphone made obsolete by the Moto G

Published on 04/20/2014 by in News
Welcome to IRL, an ongoing feature where we talk about the gadgets, apps and toys we’re using in real life and take a second look at products that already got the formal review treatment.

IRL: Kogan's Agora HD, a $189 smartphone made obsolete by the Moto G

When I first came across Kogan at last year’s CES, it was for the launch of the Aussie company’s very first Agora smartphone. It was a modestly specced handset with some performance issues, but that was understandable: the going price was just $149, a sign that affordability was considered above all else. Then just nine months later, a follow-up smartphone, the Agora HD, was announced. A new 720p, 5-inch display and quad-core 1.2GHz processor were the headline features, but really there were improvements across the board. It was inevitable the price had to go up, too, but even then $189 felt like a small hop compared with the leap in hardware.

From the Editor’s Desk: Process all the things

Published on 04/20/2014 by in News

As we continue to search for the best smartphone camera, let’s take a minute and enjoy the damn pictures

When, exactly, did we become so damn cynical about smartphone cameras? In my lifetime we’ve gone from Polaroids and those point-and-shoots with the crazy five- or six-shot (I don’t remember how many) flashes to friggin’ computers with 4- or 16- or even 20-megapixel shooters in our pockets. We’re able to take multiple pictures, select, edit and then share them with the world just seconds later. No more 24-hour processing. No more hoping you get the right prints back. No more lugging out large photo albums that you might care about once or twice a year. We have unlimited virtual storage.

So why the hell can’t we just enjoy the shots?
