Just yesterday, we told you about a new security flaw that has been spotted and that it could possibly affect around 66% of the Android devices at risk. Now, Google has recognised the flaw but claims that the number of devices that will be affected is much smaller in reality.
Google introduced MTP with Android 4.0, mainly because that used a single partition for the internal storage and also this enabled the usage of secondary storage even when it was being used by the PC and contents are being transferred. MTP works really well in the windows platform basically because of the drivers available. It is a real problem to use MTP on computers with any O.S other than Windows. Thanks to the guys at XDA who have come up with a solution. This guide will help all the Linux users out there to set up MTP on their computers.
In the future almost everything is going to be mobile and compact, and Canonical has just taken a step further to prove this fact. I am a big fan of Open Source and when I heard about Canonical working for a mobile version of Ubuntu I was excited, like I was excited when I heard about Google working on a Linux based mobile platform, but I had no idea that Ubuntu for Android was what they have been working on and this concept is really beautiful, the merger of mobile O.S and a desktop O.S is here.
Looks like the clouds surrounding the future of MeeGo have finally cleared up. Intel has announced today that it is bidding farewell to MeeGo and joining Tizen project which is part of the Linux Foundation. The Tizen project was announced yesterday by the Linux foundation and the LiMo foundation as an open-source Linux based device software platform. Tizen covers smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, netbooks and in-vehicle infotainment systems. The first devices powered by Tizen are expected to hit the market in mid-2012.
