How I do it: Working from my Transformer Prime

33

I've always been the first one to say that getting any work done with a tablet of any kind isn't very practical. They're great for consumption, but production was something all-together different. I've changed my mind a little bit this week. I now have a Transformer Prime and keyboard dock, and have found that you can get some work done with an Android tablet, you just have to find the right tools. Hit the break, and I'll walk you through how I wrote this blog post (and others) with my Prime.

Securely wiping any device makes it just fine to sell [#FUDfighters]

14

The latest bit of FUD spreading around about Android is that you can't ever sell your old Android phone without giving away all your data, secrets, and possibly the recipe for KFC.

Like many things you'll read elsewhere on the Internet, there's a lot of crap attached and presented as fact that is just wrong. Someone needs to explain what exactly is going on here. Allow me to try my best. Hit the break for a read.

New malware appearing in dodgy apps you shouldn't be downloading anyway

60

The next time you're cruising one of the various Android app piracy forums looking for the free crack for ROM Manager or Root Explorer, be warned that you may get more than you're looking for. A new bit of malware named DKFBootkit has been found attached to pirated apps that require root. It hooks itself into the boot sequence by altering files in the system, and can cause all sorts of problems without the user being aware. Since you think it's a legit application, you say OK when it asks for root privileges, and you are owned. It's bad news all around.

The good news is that it's easy as hell to avoid. That's the part of these types of stories that never seems to get mentioned. Use a bit of common sense -- you download a file from someone who is able to crack a legit app and defeat any license checks, and you don't think they can drop a bot or keylogger in there as well? Idiocy like this is what keeps malware alive on Windows desktops, and Android devices. Stop stealing apps, and don't be stupid enough to trust someone who steals and redistributes them. Period. Full stop.

If you didn't pay for it, chances are you'll wish you did. And you deserve it.

There's not much we can say about the MiKandi Adult Mobile Theater that isn't covered in the video above. Since the Android phone is for porn, you might as well get your porn the best way possible, right? Well MiKandi thinks the best way is to hit their site and download their app to bypass all the spam and bad porn that comes with Googling up a bit of skin. Promising to change the way you watch porn, the app delivers instant streaming from the "hottest" studios right to your device. We'll not argue. If you're going do it, do it up right. Hit the link below to check out MiKandi. Yeah, it's totally NSFW. You've been warned.

Google adds manager feature to Android Developer Console

1

Here's a cool little feature Google's added to the Android Developer Console: You can now add managers to the account. That way, the account holder (say, Mobile Nations) can grant someone (say, me) access to the company's Android apps in Google Play without having to hand over the keys to the castle in the form of the account password. A wise move from the folks in Mountain View.
