Privacy in cellular devices


Submitted by marcin on Tue 05-Jun-2007

This article will contains various comments about privacy connected with cellular devices (in GSM networks)...

First of all, I must say, that you don't have something like that. Each time, when phone exchange data with operator stations, he know phone and SIM card details. If you have bought SIM card with concract, he know you personal info too. Of course this is not 100% reliable (phone can be not used by owner), but... This location data should be secret and the most often are. But now always...

My comment to http://blog.cihar.com/archives/2007/05/15/why_do_people_buy_non_document... :

you are generally Michal right. Well documented hardware = less problems...

But: very often people buy, what they know and what is compatible with their other hardware (like memory cards). Sometimes not well documented hardware is much better than documented. I remember times of Nokia 3310. You simply didn't have cheap and so good phone...

My diff file for Gammu+ became too big and I decided to release 0.21.00 faster (it doesn't have some planned things).

Few notes about this and other issues (random):

  • I'm almost happy from pbk/calendar/todo/notes quality and I almost switched my personal backups/restores from Gammu to Gammu+. This is not beta, but rather Release Candidate (when we compare to commercial packages).

Gammu 1.09.16 is out. The only one change is in ChangeLog - it informs, that currently releases will be done Michal. I hope, that this is good decision and project will grow faster. I will try to look into it from time to time and inform Michal, when something is wrong (or send him patches). We will see in the future, if decision was good not...

Some words about future...

Gammu

Gammu+

I'm working on real MMS decoder (this moved from Gammu is not too good). Can anyone send me as many example MMS as possible ? (I know, I know, that there are some softwares for creating, but this is not the same...) It will be treat confidential and not published.

I have started MMS viewer too (GUI already can work without phone).

Evolution or revolution ?

We had this topic visible here few times. I want to return to it again.

Let's show few things. First Microsoft. Do you remember problems with joining two Windows families (one started with Windows 95 and one with Windows NT) ? We had Windows 2000, which wasn't the best for users, but finally company released Windows XP and it was big success. Now we hear about Vista incompatibilies and part of reports say clear - because of it may users won't be interested in getting new OS for longer time.

Komórki (2006)


Submitted by marcin on Wed 06-Dec-2006

Wielu użytkowników chciałoby mieć możliwość zgrania ze swoich telefonów komórkowych stworzonych przez siebie zdjęć, zrobienia kopii książki telefonicznej czy zawartości kalendarza. Ponieważ programy dostarczane przez producentów "komórek" działają jednak tylko w Windows lub Mac OS, musimy skorzystać z innych narzędzi. W tym artykule postaramy się je przedstawić, jak również zwrócić uwagę na inne możliwe rozwiązania.
