Web Security Analysis of 12 BlackBerry 10 Applications | FileArchiveHaven

There are many things that tie BlackBerry users together, and one of those has always been the importance of security.  Some people forget that being secure means more than just ensuring an application is virus free!  Nefarious (what a great word) applications can access private data, sneak that data out to private websites, and even monitor your device traffic to keep tabs on what your doing all without the user knowing.  Real dangerous applications can go even farther, allowing a developer to remotely execute code on a users device without the users permission!  Imagine, applications that can decide what you can and can’t do, search the internet for things without you knowing or perform actions on your phone without your knowledge.

Web Security BB10 Apps

Not only are these security concerns very real, but they go unnoticed by all major platforms during testing and validation cycles.  No major device manufacturer at this time is monitoring applications submitted to their platforms for what data is being sent and received.  Although, to give them credit, BlackBerry has done a fantastic job of limiting what applications with back-doors can do.

BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 Arriving February 19th | N4BB

BlackBerry users have been eagerly anticipating the rollout of an official OS 10.3.1 release for their devices. That is, those users who do not have a Passport or Classic.

BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 Arriving February 19th | N4BB

The update is long overdue as we first exclusively revealed BlackBerry had pushed back the update until 2015.

Despite a failed rumor that BlackBerry was going to release the update in January, the company had already let customers know to expect it in February.

When in February? We have exclusively learned the global rollout of OS 10.3.1 to all current in-market BB10 devices will be on February 19th.

Apparently, the rollout was supposed to have happened yesterday. However, BlackBerry had issues with the update accidentally wiping the entire device. Hopefully, BlackBerry has solved the issue and we can expect the update to hit user’s devices by the 19th.

The BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 update will bring new features and an upgraded virtual assistant with Siri-like capabilities.

A-EON Technology acquires Aladdin4D

3D modelling, rendering and animation software

A-EON Technology is pleased to announce that it has purchased the AmigaOS source code and development rights for Aladdin4D from DiscreetFX. As part of the agreement A-EON will exclusively own the Aladdin4D 68k and PPC source code, domain name, brand and rights for all AmigaOS and related versions including emulation and future MorphOS and AROS ports. Meanwhile DiscreetFX will retaint the rights for non-Amiga related operating systems.

Aladdin 4D is software for modelling and rendering three-dimensional graphics and animations for the Amiga platform. It was originally created by Greg Gorby and subsequently updated by Nova Design before being acquired by DiscreetFX in December 2007. Prior to our acquisition DiscreetFX was working on a new version 6.0 for multiple platforms.

Aladdin 4D is one of the few modern 3D applications for the Amiga platform. It uses an OS-compliant GUI which supports RTG displays and utilizes the AmigaGuide Help system and also features an ARexx port for scripting.

Aladdin 4D includes many advanced 3D features:-

● Infinite layering of surfaces: A surface of an object may have a virtually infinite amount of textures, shaders etc layered on it.

● Spline modelling tool.

● Importing of most postscript files, making the creation of logos easier.

● Unlimited number of working layers: multiple working areas containing only a portion of the scene, easing out the management and pace of objects during the creation of animation.

● Gaseous volumetrics with adjustable mass.

● Built-in particle system to simulate various effects like fireworks.

● Morphing capabilities in the animation system.

● Spline animation controls also has advanced rendering features like motion blur, multiple pass supersampling, lens flares, 32-bit color support and a highly optimised 68k rendering engine. It also support multiple 3D formats such as: Aladdin 4D, Lightwave3D, GEO, EPS, DEM, Draw4D-Pro and Draw4D, 3D Studio for either loading or loading and saving. Image Formats supported for loading and saving: IFF/ILBM (palette mapped and 24-bit formats), JPEG and Video Toaster Framestores. In addition supports exchange of data with ImageFX, Amiga Lightwave 3D/Video Toaster, World Construction Set and all programs that support Nova Design’s “Magic” protocol for buffer sharing. The latest version runs on any Amiga platform or an emulated one, like Amiga Forever, UAE (including WinUAE & E-UAE), Pegasos or Mac Mini G4 systems running MorphOS.

Trevor Dickinson, A-EON’s co-founder commented on the latest addition to A-EON’s growing software catalogue. “The purchase of underlines our commitment to deliver more software content for the Amiga platform. Expect to see more titles added in the future.” DiscreetFX CEO, Bill Panagouleas, added, “Altough I’m sad to see it go, I know it is in a safe pair of hands and look forward to A-EON continuing it’s rich heritage.”
