Over the last week or so, bloggers have been posting warm and fuzzy reflections about Android because we’ve just passed the 10th anniversary of the reveal of the T-Mobile G1, (AKA the HTC Dream, or colloquially the “G phone”), the platform’s first commercial device. Many folks—including this here blogger—had basically the same idea: Get your hands on the device (I took mine to T-Mobile for activation and they were all “nah”) take some photos or video, and wax about “back in the day.” Let me tell you something about back in the day: Android sucked. Even at the time, I don’t think anyone was confused about what was going on with Android or the T-Mobile G1. The notion of an open source alternative to the iPhone was appealing, but both the hardware and software were very nearly unusable. The phone was a vehicle for an idea that was barely conceived, let alone fully realized. Though its fun Sidekick-like slideout keyboard was … [Read more...] about Remember How Bad Android Was?

Academics from universities in Sweden and the UK have come up with a new technique that turns a smartphone's built-in speaker and microphone into a crude sonar system to steal phone unlock patterns from Android devices. The general idea behind this technique --named SonarSnoop-- is to use sound waves to track a user's finger position across a screen. The technique consists of using a malicious app on the device to emit sound waves from the phone's speakers at frequencies inaudible to the human ear --between 18kHz and 20kHz. Just like in the case of a submarine's sonar, the malicious app uses (the device's) microphones to pick up the sound waves bouncing back off nearby objects, which in this case is the user's finger(s). Depending on the placement of speakers and microphones on a device's case, machine learning algorithms can be built to read the collected data and determine possible unlock patterns. In a research paper published last week, academics from Lancaster … [Read more...] about SonarSnoop attack can steal smartphone unlock patterns
