Google confirms: Google+ is being broken up

As suggested last week by Google SVP Sundar Pichai, Google has confirmed it will be breaking its Google+ social network into two different entities.

Google exec Bradley Horowitz confirmed the news, noting that Google+ would be broken into 'Photos' and 'Streams.'

Noted the exec: "Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I'm excited to be running Google's Photos and Streams products! It's important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users."

Google Photos has been popular among users as it stores all your photos in the cloud and actually organizes it using Google's algos.

Google's Android Pay is real, and it has an API

Google's Android Pay is real, and it has an API

Now that Apple Pay is a hit and Samsung just announced their entry to market, Google is not far behind in the blossoming mobile payments world.

Google's SVP Sundar Pichai has confirmed today that the rumored Android Pay is real, and it has an API that will allow developers to build payments right into their apps.

The effort follows Google's recent announcement that its Wallet mobile payment app would be pre-installed on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile phones following the company's acquisition of SoftCard.

Besides allowing for purchasing in stores using NFC, Android Pay will also work with retailers for online checkout options similar to Apple Pay. Android Pay will also support tokenized card numbers, meaning every transaction will use a one-time number via Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

Jolla announces "Sailfish Secure," a 'security hardened' version of its operating system

Jolla announces "Sailfish Secure," a 'security hardened' version of its operating system

Jolla, the Finnish smartphone startup, has announced Sailfish Secure, a 'security hardened' version of its operating system.

The company says it will work directly with Finland's SSH Communications to enhance its Sailfish operating system with better security credentials. SSH says it will provide communication encryption and key management.

Says Jolla: "The Sailfish Secure approach will allow solution concept adaptation to e.g. local needs, and also collaboration with other security partners. End customers like governments or large corporations are able to adapt the solution to their preferred hardware platform, i.e. the solution is not tied to a specific hardware configuration."

Who are potential customers for Sailfish Secure? "Customers for the solution can include government officials, and corporations needing a secure mobile solution. The aim is also to make the solution affordable for consumers."

Jolla's secure OS should be available 'during 2016,' notes the company.

Cyanogen reveals new logo, branding and major partnership with Qualcomm

Cyanogen reveals new logo, branding and major partnership with Qualcomm

Cyanogen, the brand that is trying to break into the mobile operating system wars and is actually succeeding, has announced a new major partnership with Qualcomm alongside a new logo and branding.

Qualcomm, the world's largest chipmaker, has confirmed it will install the Cyanogen OS on its upcoming Reference Design products starting next month. The Reference Design program lets Qualcomm create "templates" for smartphones that smaller OEMs can easy take and release under their own names.

These won't be high-end devices, Qualcomm notes, with the devices being powered by the company's mid-range 200, 400 and 600 processors but no matter it should help Cyanogen reach millions of new consumers for its fast, efficient open-source operating system.

In addition, Cyanogen has rebranded again and created a new logo that they hope gives "a sense of motion and a feeling of inherent energy" and one that "captures our commitment to openness."
