This Dog Loves to Play Dress Up With Cardboard Cutouts

1

Semba is a woman with a very patient dog and a lot of creative ideas about how to play with her pup. Oddly, her dog, named Chihuahua-mametaro, seems to truly enjoy sticking his head in Semba’s cardboard creations. It’s a different kind of doggy dress up, but it sure is hard not to love it. Of course, when his whole body is hiding behind a giant piece of cardboard, it can be hard to tell how cute little Chihuahua-mametaro is outside of his “costumes,” so with that in mind, here’s the rolly-polly pooch totally in the nude.

How to Play Classic Retro Games on Android

Thanks to the endless gifts that Moore’s Law continues to bestow upon us, cramming many of your favorite retro gaming systems into a phone that’s not much bigger than half a pack of playing cards has never been easier than it is today. Many of the most popular consoles from our past like NES, Sega Genesis, and Playstation One can all be enjoyed from wherever you are in the world thanks to mobile emulators, but getting started with emulation on Android is easier said than done.

Google policy change requires apps like Facebook to update via the Play Store (updated)

Google policy change stops apps like Facebook from bypassing Play Store updates

Google just released a new Play Store version (4.0.27) that, at first glance, contains only very minor tweaks — except for one little thing. A new policy change will no longer permit any apps to update without going through the Play Store’s internal system. That won’t affect most software, but there’s a notable exception in Facebook, which recently added auto-downloading to the latest version of its Android app, allowing it to bypass Play. The new policy seems designed to put a stop to that kind of thing, but you never know — it could be just be a coincidence.

Update: Google has reached out to clarify that it also posted the policy changes to its Developer Console with the following statement:

Google Play Program Policies have been updated. See “Content Policies” section, which clarifies that “An app downloaded from Google Play may not modify, replace or update its own APK binary code using any method other than Google Play’s update mechanism.” Google Play is a trusted source for Android application downloads, and we are committed to providing a secure and consistent experience. Learn More.

[Thanks, Thomas]

Newly Discovered Android Malware Was Downloaded Millions Of Times

malware

Security firm Lookout has detailed a clever new bit of Android Malware lurking in the Google Play store. The good news: unless you’re downloading questionable Russian clone apps, you’re probably not affected. The bad news: that hasn’t kept it from being downloaded a few million times.

The new malware, fittingly dubbed “BadNews”, has been spotted tucked into 32 different apps from 4 separate developer accounts. Since Google Play only gives download numbers as huge ranges, no one can say exactly how many devices this has affected. With the lowball estimates, it’s around two million. On the high end, it’s as many as nine million. In reality, it’s somewhere in between the two.

As the BadNews bug appears to have been distributed as an ad framework for developers to use, it’s unclear how many of the infected apps were built primarily for malicious reasons. It’s quite possible that some of the apps were built by well-meaning developers who just made a bad decision on an ad provider.

While Google has been making an effort to crackdown on malware with things like Bouncer (which constantly scans the Play store’s apps for telltale signs of malware), it’s a never-ending (and very much uphill) battle. BadNews snuck into the store by posing as an ad network, only firing off the nasty bits of code by way of remote signal once it had found its way onto a bunch of devices.

So, what makes BadNews bad news? It does at least two things you’d probably rather your phone didn’t do:

  • Fakes alerts encouraging you to download other infected apps, as well as things things like AlphaSMS, which hijacks your phone and silently signs it up for premium SMS services
  • Sends your phone number and unique device i.d (the IMEI) back to the malware’s mothership

LookOut has the full list of known affected apps, with over half of them targeted at Russian users. The most popular, by far, is “Savage Knife”, a game meant to simulate 5 Finger Fillet — or, as it’s better known, “that dumb game where you try not to cut off your finger”. By the time it was pulled from the store yesterday, it had somewhere between one and five million installs.

Following LookOut’s report, Google has pulled all 32 known-infected apps for the store.

Malware? On Android?!

Preposterous. Wait, no. That’s not the word I’m looking for.

Google Play Books for iOS catches up to Android version with mapping info, user guide

Google Play Books for iOS catches up to Android version with mapping info, user guide

Apple devices will finally get a Google Play Books update received by Android users back in September that packs a couple of useful new flourishes. The headliner is a geographical look-up feature that lets you see a description and Google Maps view of a location from a book just by tapping and holding on it in flowing text mode — letting you supplement A Moveable Feast with details about Paris, for instance. Mountain View also added a user guide, support for fixed layout EPUB books plus Japanese vertical flowing text and the ever-popular “substantial improvements in performance and stability.” Now that Maps is back in the Apple fold, hopefully similar location features will hit more of Google’s iOS apps — meanwhile, hit the source to grab today’s update.
