Lenovo computers may be completely removed from the offices of local state authorities, following the shocking discovery of spyware pre-installed on these devices. The Haiphong Steering Committee for Protection of State Secrets, under the Haiphong People’s Committee, has circulated Document 557 requesting all of the city’s state agencies to discontinue using Lenovo-branded computers, for internet safety and security reasons.

Gone are most of the familiar muted-palette design elements and those meant to mimic real-world objects -- the wooden shelves of the Newsstand app, for instance, and the image of the desk calendar. In their place are flat, brightly colored icons that, depending on your taste, are either hip and modern-looking or cartoon-like. I've used the new software on the iPhone 5s and 5c, as well on an iPhone 5 and a third-generation iPad. … [Read more...] about Apple’s iOS 7 is a potent upgrade
