CloudMagic - How To Search The Entire Cloud

If you're like me, you probably have data spread across a number of cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc. Hopefully you're a lot more organized with your data than I am with mine, because at times I do find myself utilizing the search function of the cloud service.

Many of us use cloudHQ as a way to sync all of our data from various cloud services into one cloud backup account, which also allows easy searching because all of our files are backed up to one centralized service which can be easily searched.

Samsung Galaxy S4: The Ultimate Business Smartphone

Knox Security Improves BYOD Usage With Samsung Galaxy S4

With the rapid expansion of the Bring your own Device (BYOD) movement among companies and enterprises, mobile security has become a concern, and an issue that many companies aren't quite sure how to deal with. The benefits of BYOD are far too great to ignore completely, yet when you have company data that is accessible from employees' private mobile devices, some concessions must be made. To battle the insecurity issue, many IT departments require monitoring of the mobile devices that will be used to access company data. So now the concern is with the employees because they don't want the company monitoring their private emails and data. The solution for many employees has been to carry two phones- one for personal use and one for business use. This way, the employees' private data stays private while the company phone is monitored. 

Knox: Samsung's new business and security solution

Samsung and Absolute Software have been working in together to create a security solution called Samsung Knox. This security platform transforms the Samsung Galaxy S4 into the ultimate corporate phone. It separates the phone into two sections- one for personal use and one for business use. This ensures that all personal data stays private from remote business users so the IT guys can monitor the business usage of the phone without prying into private emails or data.

The Knox security feature could change the way BYOD is currently used as it now provides access for employees to use a single phone for both personal and corporate use. With the exciting array of features that the Samsung Galaxy S4 already comes with, the implementation of such an innovative business and security solution makes the phone the ultimate business smartphone.


Mobile Web Browsing Changes On The Way

As mobile use is at an all-time high and expected to top desktop computer use within a year or so, companies such as Google, Samsung and Apple are all competing for their share of this highly competitive market. Recent announcements show that Google, Samsung and Mozilla are working fast to release new versions of web browser engines for mobile use.

What is a web browser engine?

Browser engines are used to interpret HTML which determines how the content is displayed on the screen. It sounds simple enough but there are many differing mobile devices- each with its own type of browser. If two browsers use different engines, the content may be displayed differently on each device.

Google developing web browser engine called Blink

Google announced on Wednesday that it was developing a new web browser engine called Blink. Blink is a variant of the WebKit engine, an open-source engine that currently powers Chromium and Safari. However, as Chromium has become more complex, it has become harder to use, which spurred these changes by Google. Blink will also be used to power Opera's web browser.

Mozilla and Samsung developing web browser engine called Servo

Mozilla also announced on Wednesday that it was currently working with Samsung to develop a new web browser engine called Servo. Servo will be used mainly for Android smartphones. This announcement comes at a time when Google is currently attempting to market the Chromium browser to smartphone users.
