Logging Test by TrevE [SassiBoB Review]

I Can Haz Privacy? Today on XDATV, SassiBoB rocks an app called Logging Test by recognized developer TrevE. Have you ever wondered who is collecting your personal information on your mobile device? You may not know it, but “opting out” just isn’t enough. Is your privacy being respected? Find out now!

Quote from the developer:

“3 reasons I think this is important:

2- Why does htc/sprint/google whoever need to waste my mobile data (goes through my airave, so its my bandwidth) and CPU cycles/battery logging?

3- Who the hell is getting my data?”

Check out the thread in the forums.

Huawei: A Giant the Western World Should Look Out For

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
