Edit Notes:

.

.

TWiT BIT:
[1] At BlackHat next week, mobile security firm called Zimperium will show a video and release proof of concept code illustrating how the Stagefright media playback engine in Android devices 2.2+ can be exploited to run malicious C++ code that potentially gives full system access to those using it. (950 million vulnerable devices) The demonstration uses Hangouts as the vector, but this is a system level exploit. The Hangouts MMS can actually delete itself after received, leaving no trace. That code will likely be weaponized quickly once released, according to steve gibson. Google has patched AOSP and says it has multiple technologies "designed to make exploitation more difficult", though some of those don't exist in pre-JB phones (11% of devices) leaving them at the highest level of risk. Play Services can't address this.
[2] In the on-going saga of de-plussing Google's other properties, Google's VP of Streams Photos and Sharing Bradley Horowitz announced that Google+ membership will no longer be tied or required for anything at Google, including YouTube comments. As for G+, Bradley says "Relieved of the notion of integrating with every other product at Google, Google+ can now focus on doing what it’s already doing quite well: helping millions of users around the world connect around the interest they love. Aspects of the product that don’t serve this agenda have been, or will be, retired."
[3] Google Now voice actions can now be used with messaging apps other than Hangouts, including WhatsApp, WeChat, Viber, and others. "OK Google, send a WhatsApp message to Shannon" followed by the message to send. Thankfully, not limited to the US at launch.
[4] We now know the fate of the once-hyped Ouya microconsole as Razer confirmed its acquisition of the company in an all-cash deal. The kicker is that Razer isn't acquiring the Hardware part of the company (which Ouya shut down in 2014), meaning this is an acqui-hire of the developer relations and technical teams. Ouya CEO and co-founder Julie Uhrman isn't coming to Razer. Razer plans to integrate Ouya's games and account assets (more than 200,000 users) into its Cortex TV game platform which will be relaunched for Android TV.
[5] Motorola announced its new lineup of three new phones this morning, it's first refresh since Lenovo acquired Motorola last October: Moto X Style (Moto X Pure Edition in the US) 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808, 3GB of RAM, 5.7" q-HD display, 16GB storage, 3000 mAh battery, NFC, microSD, turbo charging, 21MP RFC, 5MP FFC, moto maker customizations $399 unlocked in September. Selling direct to customers online, no carrier partners, though it supports all US carriers. Moto Play 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, 5.5" HD display, 3630mAh battery, turbo charging, 21MP RFC, 5MP FFC Available in August. Not available in US. Moto G 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410, 5" 720p display, 2470mAh battery, microSD, 13mp RFC, 5mp FFC, 4G LTE as standard feature, waterproof coating. $189 8GB storage, 1GB RAM / $219 16GB storage, 2GB RAM
[6] OnePlus Two was unveiled to most of us via a VR app: Snapdragon 810 with 4GB RAM, 5.5" 1080p LCD display, 13MP RFC with OIS and laser autofocus, usb-c, 3300mAh, interchangeable back cover, dual nano-sim, alert switch for choosing notification alert status (all/priority/none), US and Europe by invite only on August 11 $389 for 64GB storage $329 for 16GB storage eventually. no microSD, fast charging, NFC
[7] If Motorola and OnePlus failed to impress you, maybe what you need is LG's latest device, the LG Gentle. A faux-leather flip phone running 5.1 Lollipop, with a 1.1GHz quadcore CPU, 3.2" LCD touchscreen, 4GB storage and 1GB RAM. Apparently in Japan, for the first time in seven years, flip phone sales rose 5.7%, likely a reaction to Japan's smartphone fees that are some of the highest worldwide.
[8] A new Maps update brings the Timeline feature which, when enabled, will take you through your location history from your device, complete with photos tied to specific locations and events. This feature has been available on Desktop for a long time, but yay, now its on mobile and its really cool!
[9] Android Police noticed last week that, at some point, Google updated the YouTube app to play Vertical Videos full screen on devices, as opposed to landscape with large black bars on both sides. Yay?
