• Announces appMobi support of multitasking in iOS4.

    FlyCast announces a new open source library of demonstration mobile apps that were created with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. As a supplement to Apple’s HTML5 gallery, these demonstrations illustrate how new web technologies can be used to create world-class compelling mobile experiences, obviating the need for Adobe Flash on mobile devices. The gallery can be viewed using iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by navigating to http://appmobi.com/gallery.

    Created by FlyCast, appMobi is a cross-platform rapid mobile app development and deployment ecosystem. appMobi offers users the ability to “develop once” using HTML and JavaScript, then deploy to a variety of devices and operating systems, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android tablets and phones. Apps created with appMobi are native apps, fully compliant with Apple’s SDK 4.0 terms of service.

    Anticipating the upcoming release of Apple’s iOS 4, with its ability to play streaming radio in the background, appMobi also released source code that will allow any radio station to create a branded, multitasking native app that will run on Apple iPad, iPhone (all versions), iPod Touch, and any Android device.

    appMobi is a new type of cloud-based “Software as a Service” (SaaS) provider, offering its customers scalable, pay-as-you-go development and deployment tools, Amazon AWS edge-caching servers for hosted application deployment, PhoneGap support, analytics, in-app payments, and advertising. The source code posted today is offered under the MIT open source license.

  • This week, AT&T’s 3G network servicing the Apple iPad was breached. AT&T claims the breach is closed, but RESCUECOM CEO David A. Milman says, “While most everyone is aware that security is important, very few of us understand what goes into securing the software, hardware, and networks that contain our most valuable asset, our identity. AT&T’s breach is a perfect example of how at risk we are.”

    RESCUECOM provides iPad users with five tips to protect their personal data:

    1. Turn off the 3G Network: AT&T has stated that there is no more threat to customers. However, turning off 3G wireless Internet service, at least temporarily, will protect an individual’s personal data from any further attack.

    2. Request a new SIM from AT&T: The ICC-ID number that the hackers breached is attached to each user’s SIM, the card linking an individual iPad to its user. Changing the SIM card would change the ICC-ID as well, rendering that information useless.

    3. Confirm any email from Apple or AT&T: The most likely threat to iPad users comes from what are called “phishing attacks” – fraudulent e-mails disguised as being from a trusted source. These attacks trick users into giving away personal information or into opening e-mails that may install malicious programs.

    In this case, the e-mails would most likely seem to come from Apple or AT&T, as most users would expect. Should an iPad owner get an email, they should confirm that it came from the real Apple or AT&T, and remember that the real companies never ask for personal or login information in an e-mail.

    4. Change your email: The simplest solution is to stop using the compromised e-mail address. AT&T states the only information illicitly obtained was user’s e-mail addresses. Changing your address would eliminate this threat.

    5. Be careful what you use the iPad for: Using the iPad is, most likely, still safe. However, to best protect personal data, users should be careful what they use the iPad for. Avoid tasks such as mobile banking or anything that transmits personal information, especially when on a 3G network.

    For those consumers who have not yet purchased an iPad, but were considering it, Milman reminds them that, “As with all new technology, RESCUECOM recommends waiting at least six months for the manufacturer to work the major bugs out of the system.”

    RESCUECOM recognizes the value of personal and Internet security. Should any iPad owner feel that their personal data may have been compromised, they can contact one of our computer repair specialists for assistance.
