Analysts: iPad defeated Android-plates -

In II quarter 2013 deliveries tablets running Google Android operating system in the world market for the first time exceeded the supply of tablets iPad, on the platform of Apple iOS, according to ABI Research. Specific figures the company has not led.

In addition, manufacturers of Android tablets have reached parity with Apple in terms of money. At the end of the II quarter of this year, tablets were sold in the amount of $ 12.7 billion, which Apple, on the one hand, and all the other vendors, on the other, divided equally.

Analysts also noted that the average selling price of iPad is fast approaching the average market value of Android-plates. Over the last year the average price of iPad decreased by 17%, while the average price of other brands of tablets – has increased by the same amount.

decrease in the average prices of iPad due to the shift of customer demand for lower-cost 7.9-inch model iPad mini. According to analysts, in the II quarter of iPad mini formed 60% of all deliveries and brought the Apple iPad 49% of all proceeds from the sale of the plates.

Total delivery of tablets in the period from April to June 2013 increased by 23% compared to the same period last year.

Analysts have long said that Apple is gradually losing its position in the tablet market.

iPad conceded superiority in the tablet market platform Android

According to Strategy Analytics, in the II quarter of 2013 the share of Apple in the global tablet market in the figure fell almost doubled to 28.3% compared with 47.2% in the same period last year. The company’s share has decreased not only due to the rapid growth of the other players, but also for the reason that the supply of its own tablet, iPad, decreased by 14% compared to the same period last year (to 14.6 million units).

dwindling supply of iPad in the II quarter of this year, analysts attributed the lack of new models: the specified period, the Company did not provide any new products, while last year just before the II quarter, in March, was announced the iPad with a display Retina. On the other hand, a year ago in the line of Apple was not the tablet iPad mini.

According to IDC, in I quarter of 2013 the share of Apple in the tablet market fell to 39.6% from 58.1% in I quarter of 2012

recall that their first iPad, Apple introduced in January 2010 and started its sales in April of the same year. To date, the market was supplied over 140 million tablets iPad.

Digg is a free download in Google Play.


Against Simplenote – probably the easiest in the world “zametochnogo” service – even Google Keep it may seem confusing program. Compulsory registration would be required.

Simon The Sorcerer

Adventure Quest about a young wizard Simon – ordinary teenager who accidentally fell into the fantasy world and wants to go home. The first part of the series (for DOS and Amiga) came out in 1993, the last – in 2009. Simon The Sorcerer – not an ordinary “port” on the operating system Android. The developers have optimized all the graphics for HD-displays, adapted for touch control game and spent the remastered music.

However, fans of nostalgia can bring back all the old settings and even with the mouse. Knowing a foreign language is necessary: ??the characters “speak” in English or German with subtitles in Spanish, French, Italian or Hebrew. The audience like the game: from 225 to 199 Google Play set her “top five”.

about the adventures of Simon’s Quest is 138 rubles. If the amount of your internal memory is very limited, keep in mind that the distribution of the game “weighs” 363 MB.

AVG AntiVirus Security

In September of AVG AntiVirus from AVG Mobile received a major update. Errors have been corrected, you can automatically activate the economy, if the battery has started to wane. Also improved service “antitheft” (Anti-Theft). First, if someone makes 3 wrong attempts, picking PIN-code, the smartphone will start to shoot an intruder and secretly send his photos to you by email. Second, if someone replaces SIM-card, the device is automatically locked.

AVG not only protects against viruses in your browser, third-party applications, and SMS. He still knows how to “kill” stale tasks, to monitor the flow of traffic, and battery. However, these features are available only in the Pro-version. Rating program is quite high: 4.6 of 5 points (473 thousand people gave him five “stars”).

basic version of AVG is free and “premium” – for 160 rubles. C other antivirus for Android, as well as safety tips, you can find in our review.

McAfee noted a sharp increase in Android-Harmful - SayberCekyuriti.Ru

Laboratory of McAfee released a report on the threats for the second quarter of 2013, which recorded an unprecedented since the beginning of 2012 the growth of malicious programs for devices based on the operating system Android. It reached 35%. The tendency is accompanied by a steady increase in the number of malicious programs designed to steal SMS-to online banking, fake applications for dating and fun, intentionally modified versions of trusted applications, including malware, issued for useful utilities.

In the second quarter of lab McAfee registered more than double in the first quarter of the new sample programs for extortion. Thus, in 2013, they found more than in all previous years combined.

The second quarter also showed a rise in the number of suspicious URL-addresses on the 16% increase in the number of malicious programs, authentic signed certificates increased by 50%. In addition, the documented cases of large-scale cyber attacks and electronic espionage, including attacks on the Bitcoin system and expose the operation “Troy”, aimed at military targets the U.S. and South Korea.

Analysts McAfee identified a number of common strategies for mobile espionage, used by hackers to obtain money and sensitive information from the victims:

Malware in online banking. In many banks, which implements two-factor authentication, users log in to their accounts, indicating your name, password, and a transaction number that comes to their mobile device as a text message (mTAN). Analysts McAfee found four serious malware for mobile phones that first intercept user names and passwords, and then intercept SMS-message containing the credentials required for access to bank accounts. This allows an attacker to gain direct access to the accounts and funds transfer.

Fake apps for dating. McAfee lab found a huge increase in the number of applications for dating and entertainment that people are tricked into subscribing to non-existent paid services. Lonely people are trying to get access to profiles of potential partners and other content, but disappointed to learn that fell for a scam. In addition to profits from the sale of rights of access to the profiles of attackers gain additional revenue by selling user information and personal data were stolen from a mobile device.

Applications Trojans. Analysts have identified increased activity of spyware in the form of modified versions of trusted applications. Modified versions of the applications collect confidential user information (contacts, call logs, SMS-messages, location) and unload the data to the attacker’s server.

Fake utility. Cyber ??criminals also use applications that claim to be useful tools, but actually set spyware, hackers collecting and transmitting valuable personal data.

«Cyber ??crime in the area of ??mobile technologies is becoming increasingly clear outline to the extent that as cybercrime groups decide what tactics are most effective and profitable, “- says Vincent Weafer, senior vice president Labs McAfee. – “As in other developed areas of cybercrime, the desire to make a profit by breaking the bank accounts of criminals forces to overcome the technical difficulties associated with the digital system bypass trust. In some tactics of spreading malicious programs disguised as applications for dating and entertainment is successful because of the fact that such schemes are not given due attention, while others simply aim to get that in the world of mobile devices is the most common currency – users ‘personal data’ .

Along with mobile threats in the second quarter of the ongoing trends have been identified that appear to adapt to the emerging possibilities of attack and defeat the weak spots in the infrastructure business, as well as in the inventive combination of noise, distractions and damage to mask the complex targeted attacks:

Programs-extortionists. In the last two quarters of McAfee registered more samples of ransomware programs than in all previous years combined. The number of new unique patterns found in the second quarter exceeded 320,000, is more than twice the rate of the first quarter and confirms the profitability of this tactic.

Malicious programs with a digital signature. The number of malware signed authentic certificates increased by 50% to 1.2 million new samples – this is a significant increase since the recession that began to show in the first quarter. This trend threatens inevitably lead to the erosion of confidence in the global infrastructure of trusted certificates.

Suspicious URL-address. Growth in the number of suspicious URL-address in the second quarter suggests that the “infected” sites continue to play a major role as a mechanism to spread malicious programs. At the end of June, the number of detected suspicious McAfee URL-addresses has reached 74.7 million, up 16% over the first quarter.

volume of spam. The global volume of spam has grown throughout the second quarter. There were more than 5.5 trillion messages. This is about 70% of the global volume of e-mail in the same period.

attacks on Bitcoin. A sudden increase in activity in the market in the last quarter of Bitcoin and attracted the attention of cybercriminals. Along with the distributed attacks such as “denial of service» (DDoS), a group of cyber criminals infect their victims with malware, computer resources to generate and theft of virtual currency.

Operation “Troy.” Analysts McAfee found that attacks on banks and media companies in South Korea in March and June of this year, in fact, have been associated with a prolonged campaign of cyber espionage, launched back in 2009. These computer-technical examinations suggest that the campaign was designed to carry out attacks on military targets in the United States and South Korea for the purpose of detection and removal of confidential files, and, if necessary, to destroy the compromised systems through attacks on the master boot record ( MBR).
