security - My android phone was stolen. How worried should I be with all my google data inside the phone?


Thursday 16th of June 2011 / android.stackexchange.com
Ok, so my samsung galaxy 5 was stolen. I had gmail, calendar, twitter(tweetdeck), facebook, ... all my personal data in it. I didn't have any app installed that could wipe this information from a sms (tried to install PlanB through the market, but I don't think it'll work). I already changed my google password and I'm proceeding to change facebook and twitter as well. Is this enough? How much of this information (old emails, tweets, ...) are saved in the phone's memory? Can I prevent access to this just by changing my passwords?I've blocked my SIM card with my provider, so I guess the phone currently have no internet or telephone line access. Here in Brazil we can also block a stolen cell phone with the IMEI number, but I don't know exactly what this means. Will this brick the phone or just prevent it from being registered in the network?

Monday 13th of February 2012 / everythingandroid.org
Apple has filed a complaint in a California court claiming that Samsung has violated four of Apple’s patents. The complaint asks the court to block the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In reality, this is not about the Galaxy Nexus, but more so about Android 4.0.To sum up the complaint, Apple is claiming Samsung is violating patents for:Slide to unlockPatent related to search multiple sources of informationDetection of small bits of information, such as a phone number within an emailSuggesting spelling for misspelled wordsApple failed in this court last December, but you know how these things go. It’s a constant volley of patent lawsuits that certainly doesn’t help consumers.Source: WSJ via everythingiCafeRelated posts:Galaxy Nexus Ban Suspended, Sales To Resume Next WeekApple Successful For Now In Stopping Sales Of Galaxy NexusHTC and Apple Settle Patent Disputes, Enter Into 10-year License AgreementGoogle’s Motorola Mobility Files Patent Infringement Case Against Apple

Samsung Galaxy SIII Benchmarked? Here is How Its Quad-core Exynos Chip Compares to the Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4


Monday 23rd of April 2012 / androidheadlines.com
A GLBenchmark for the GT-i9300 and its Exynos 4412 quad-core processor appeared this morning, showing off some pretty impressive marks. We are still without confirmation that the i9300 is actually the Galaxy SIII, but after seeing last week’s mega-leak of a device with that model number on video, we have nothing else to go on. At one point we were on the i9300 as being the SGS3, then were off of it, and now, are sort of back on again. Anyways, let’s talk about this benchmark and how it compares to the other top two SoCs on the block, the Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4. As you can see in both Egypt and Pro tests, neither the quad-core Tegra 3 or dual-core S4 can keep up with Exy…Continue Reading HereSamsung Galaxy SIII Benchmarked?

This is of course just one single benchmark, but GL is one of the standards that we seem to go back to time and time again with new phones and new processors. Looking at these though, you have to be somewhat impressed at the power of Samsung’s latest work. The benchmarks we saw last year with the dual-core Exynos in the Galaxy SII blew our minds and it appears as if we are about to be wo
