Podcast - 8th October 2014
We begin this week's podcast with stories that go beyond the mobile industry, as HP plans to split into two companies and eBay prepares to separate itself from PayPal.
We're also talking about the Microsoft/Samsung legal case, a new Tesco tablet, BT's updated text relay service, a new way to avoid buying a stolen iPhone... and #Hairgate.
Apple has created an online tool that lets iPhone users and potential customers check the Activation Lock of a handset.
This reduces the risk of a customer unwittingly buying a stolen iPhone that turns out to be worthless.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has published an online letter that emphasises the company’s focus on privacy and data protection.
It follows an incident a couple of weeks ago when a number of high-profile Apple iCloud accounts were hacked.
The number of mobile malware infections increased by 17% during the first six months of 2014, which is almost double the rate seen in 2013.
It mirrors a similar infection rate in residential fixed-line networks, from a 9% increase in December 2013 to 18% at the end of June 2014.
