What I would like to know if there is some "call in" feature, too? Maybe not a phone number, but a way to call and then be connected to Google Hangouts.

Yes, as detailed at Hangouts 2.3 Update Brings Remaining Google Voice Integration ..., you can configure the updated Hangouts app to ring for incoming calls to your Google Voice number.

Mac OS X Sandbox Security Hole Uncovered 155

Posted by samzenpus
from the protect-ya-neck dept.
Gunkerty Jeb writes "Researchers at Core Security Technologies have uncovered a security hole that could allow someone to circumvent the application sandbox restrictions of Mac OS X. The report of the vulnerability, which affects Mac OS X 10.7x, 10.6x and 10.5x, follows Apple's announcement earlier this month that all applications submitted to the Mac App store must implement sandboxing as of March 1, 2012. Sandboxing, Apple has argued, limits the resources applications can access and makes it more difficult for malware to compromise systems. Researchers at Core however revealed Nov. 10 that they had warned Apple in September about a vulnerability in their sandboxing approach. According to Core's advisory, several of the default predefined sandbox profiles fail to 'properly limit all the available mechanisms.' As a result, the sandboxing restrictions can be circumvented through the use of Apple events."

On AT&T's network at least, the iPhone, even jail-broken ones typically, sends its tethering traffic to a different APN (AT&T access point). Making it very easy to detect when an iOS device is tethering unofficially. Android doesn't segregate its tethering traffic like iOS -- which makes it much more cost prohibitive to detect its tethering traffic; consequently, because of this, and because the number of Android devices on AT&T's network is dwarfed by that of iOS devices, it's likely that Android devices will be excluded from the crack down.

+ - Apple sues Samsung over Galaxy Phone and Tablet ->

Submitted by mystikkman
mystikkman (1487801) writes "In the latest patent suit to hit the smartphone industry, Apple is suing Samsung, alleging the Galaxy line of phones and tablets infringe on a number of the company’s patents. “Samsung’s Galaxy Tab computer tablet also slavishly copies a combination of several elements of the Apple Product Configuration Trade Dress,” Apple says in its suit, noting that Samsung’s tablet, like Apple’s uses a similar rectangular design with rounded corners, similar black border and array of icons. Apple previously sued HTC over Android. If Samsung is found infringing on the software, all the Android OEMs could be vulnerable."

Engadget: Motorola Atrix: another look (video)->

From feed by feedfeeder
Every CES there's something so alluring that we can't help going back for seconds (or thirds). This year it happens to be the Motorola Atrix, which is undoubtedly our gadget of the show, and which Myriam already put together an in-depth hands-on for. We've been using every excuse we can to swing past Motorola's booth "on our way" to other stuff on the show floor, and we finally broke down and went in for another hands-on. Check out our video walkthrough after the break, which hopefully should help explain the transition the Atrix can make from phone to desktop to laptop to set-top box. And please excuse our enthusiasm.

Ars Technica: Hands-on: Motorola's Atrix Android phone leads secret double life as a netbook->

From feed by feedfeeder

Motorola unveiled its new Android-based Atrix 4G smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week in Las Vegas. The device has extremely impressive hardware specifications and a strong feature set, but its most compelling characteristic is the ability to provide a desktop-like computing experience when it is docked in a unique netbook shell.

The Atrix 4G handset uses NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, a fingerprint reader for secure unlocking, and a 4-inch display with a resolution of 960x540a nice boost over the usual WVGA resolution that is common in high-end smartphones. It's a GSM handset that will be launching in Q1 with AT&T.
