Battery for Samsung RF511

There is a little bit of processor and memory load to pull this off, but it’s well within the scope of Chromebooks that use either Intel or ARM processors, he explained. Chromebooks are more powerful than the smartphones that Android apps are designed for, so processors will have little problem running the mobile code.The system does have its limits, however. Android apps that require specific hardware, like an always-on cellular link, won’t run on a laptop that doesn’t have the necessary kit. But that’s not as big an issue as you might think, Liu opined.For example, while some apps require GPS (something very few laptops bother to install), what they are actually after is location information, and that can usually be provided by WiFi systems.That said, according to Liu, the addition would give a spur for manufacturers to build more hardware into premium models. It’s possible – cellular-connected Chromebooks have traditionally been the red-headed stepchild of the platform and supporting the connections for Android users could prove popular.Google didn’t announce any new Chromebooks in its Pixel line, but said new hardware would be coming out from other manufacturers when Android is fully integrated later this year.

Overall, Google was very pleased with the Chrome OS model, Liu said, citing figures from IDC saying that the platform is now outselling Macs in the US. Fifty million schoolchildren are now using Chromebooks, he said, and there was potential for great growth in the enterprise market.Liu said that the Android addition would be included in the next developer release of Chrome OS, M53, in the next few weeks, and then on to consumers later in the year when the bugs have been sorted out. Desktop-as-a-service in 2016 is about as mature as infrastructure-as-a-service was in 2008, so waiting until it matures is more sensible than diving in now.So says Garter for Technical Professionals’ analyst Mark Lockwood, who The Register’s virtualisation desk beheld yesterday at the firm’s Infrastructure Operations & Data Centre Summit in Sydney.Lockwood said DaaS currently lags desktop virtualisation (VDI) in many ways, especially on cost. Best-practice VDI costs about US$300/seat/year. DaaS costs more. VDI doesn’t have latency problems. DaaS does and those problems only get worse if your desktops have to come in over the WAN to reach data inside the firewall, pipe that data into the cloudy desktop and then send it to users over the WAN again.Current DaaS offerings are also a little unrealistic – the base configuration of a single CPU with 2GB of RAM is not useful for most applications. More realistically-specced machines cost about US$50/month. Suppliers are also thin on the ground. Today only Amazon Web Services and VMware provide a single-throat-to-choke experience. Other providers can split bills so you pay for VDI licences and for the cloudy desktops.

On the upside, Lockwood said VDI is a notoriously finicky application that requires a big up-front investment and even then often needs tweaks. In typical cloudy style, DaaS requires no up-front spend. DaaS’ elasticity is also helpful for businesses that employ seasonal workers. With on-premises VDI you need to buy for peak user numbers and then wear the cost of idle infrastructure. DaaS is also nicely secure: if a mobile worker uses a cloudy desktop on a properly-secured device, sensitive data should be out of reach to whoever it is finds a laptop or iPad in an airline seat..Like all cloud services, DaaS will of course get better and cheaper. But Lockwood said there’s no point in waiting for DaaS to improve if VDI is something you need now. That’s because DaaS is still rather immature, but just as IaaS has come a long way in a short time Lockwood expects it won’t be long before the list of reasons not to consider DaaS becomes rather shorter. Nearly half of all Americans have not carried out a normal online task because of security and privacy fears, according to a new survey by the US government.Forty-five per cent of the 41,000 households contacted said they had decided not to do online banking, or buy goods online, or post on social networks because they were worried about what might happen. Just under a third of them said they had stop several of those activities over the same fears.

The survey by the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) makes for sober reading. It also makes a direct connection between people scaling back their online activities and the impact of a wave of recent security breaches of personal data.An extraordinary 19 per cent of households – which extrapolates to nearly 24 million households across the US – have been personally affected by an online security breach in the past year.That’s perhaps not surprising given the big-name consumer companies impacted, including, to name just a few: Target, Home Depot, Verizon, Wendy’s and Kiddicare – the last two reported just this week.Those that have been the victim of a data breach are significantly more likely to scale back their online activities, the survey found: on average nine per cent.The data also reveals a sad truth: the more you do online, the more likely you are to have your information compromised.Of households that reported only having one online device like a computer or laptop, just six per cent of them said they had been victim of a data breach. That percentage goes up almost linearly to an appalling 31 per cent of households with five or more online devices.

In that respect, the decision by more and more American to opt out of online tasks is a logical one. But it is also one that has significant economic impact given the extent to which companies are moving their goods and services online.Every day, billions of people around the world use the Internet to share ideas, conduct financial transactions, and keep in touch with family, friends, and colleagues, an NTIA policy analyst Rafi Goldberg wrote in a related blog post.Users send and store personal medical data, business communications, and even intimate conversations over this global network. But for the Internet to grow and thrive, users must continue to trust that their personal information will be secure and their privacy protected.Of people’s fears, identity theft sits at the top with 63 per cent of people citing it as a real concern. Second comes credit card and banking fraud with 45 per cent. Then data collection by online services, loss of control over personal data, data collection by the government, and threats to personal safety with 23, 22, 18 and 13 per cent respectively.
