Neotel launches broadband data card

first_imgFavourable speeds The NeoGo data card operates on CDMA Rev-A technology, with download speeds up to 3.1 Mbps and upload speeds up to 1.8 Mbps, which Neotel says compares favourably with the HSDPA connections offered by the country’s cellular networks. A South African study published in late 2007 by technology research firm World Wide Worx found that there was a steady move away from WiFi spots towards more affordable 3G or data card technologies, at least among corporate workers. “The data card offers consumers a simple and hassle-free method of connecting to e-mail and the internet,” Neotel’s Mukul Sharma said in a statement this week. NeoGo has two purchase options, the first of which allows consumers to purchase the data card over a 24-month period with a monthly service fee of R299. The second option allows consumers to purchase the data card upfront for R1 499, with a monthly service fee of R239. South Africa’s second landline operator, Neotel, has launched NeoGo, a data card that provides wireless broadband connectivity for consumers looking for a mobile solution. 29 July 2009 SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material “The NeoGo data card, with its large data bundle at a competitive price, is just what the consumer needs, and we don’t hide our out of bundle rate which, at eight cents per megabyte, redefines market pricing for data cards,” Sharma said. Data card usage “It is compatible with multiple operating systems such as Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Mac, and the attractive price range gives it an edge over existing data cards available in the market.” Both purchase options include 1.5-gigabytes of in-bundle data, a NeoMail Basic account, SMS capability and high-speed data. The study found that the proportion of South African corporations whose staff used data cards rose from 58% in 2006 to 82% in 2007. In contrast, the proportion that facilitate WiFi access by their staff fell from 74% to 66%.last_img read more

Your iPhone Is Tracking Your Every Move

And it doesn’t need to keep an archive on your machine of where you’ve been.” But rather than ascribing it to any sort of malicious intent he said it’s likely a “cockup rather than a conspiracy.”Conspiracy or not, it still doesn’t reflect well on Apple’s concern over its users’ privacy. We have reached out to Apple for comment on this file but we have not heard back at the time of publishing.center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Disclosure: Pete Warden is a contributor to ReadWriteWeb. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Researchers have discovered that the iPhone is keeping track of where you go and storing that information in a file that is stored – unencrypted and unprotected – on any machine with which you synchronize your phone. It is not clear why Apple is collecting this data.Data scientists Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden came across the file – “consolidated.db” – while they were thinking about the potential trove of mobile data stored on a cellphone and thinking about ways to visualize this data. Allan and Warden will present their findings today at the Where 2.0 conference.While it is not unusual for cellphones to track users’ location, that information is typically kept behind a firewall and it requires a court order for others to be able to access it. This isn’t the case with this particular file, raising serious questions about privacy and security.Tracking Your Coordinates Since iOS4The file contains longitude and latitude data, recording the phone’s coordinates along with a timestamp. This recording process seems to have started with Apple’s iOS 4 update, which means that there could be almost a year’s worth of location data stored – literally hundreds of thousands of data points. While the coordinates aren’t always precise, they are nonetheless incredibly detailed. It appears that the location is determined via cell-tower triangulation, but the timing of these recordings varies.It isn’t clear why the iPhone is tracking this data, although the possibilities for location-based features are endless – location-based advertising, geofencing apps, and so on. Although the iPhone data is stored on back-up files when the phone is synced to another computer, it doesn’t appear that the data is transmitted to Apple. Nevertheless, the iPhone appears to be unique in this type of tracking, and according to Warden, other phones do not record user’s location in the same way; the two researchers have not been able to find comparable tracking systems on Android phones. Although Google’s Latitude, for example, can track your location and lets you give that information to your contacts, it is something you need to opt in to. With the iPhone, you have no such option. There is no way to delete the file, as it will simply be restored, but you can encrypt your iPhone back-ups to make the information somewhat less accessible.Your Location Data – Unencrypted, VisualizedAnd that is another crucial part of this problem: in addition to the existence of the tracking mechanism, the information is incredibly accessible. To demonstrate this, Warden and Allan have created a simple downloadable app that will let Apple users check to see what location information has been stored. The app is fascinating, but also pretty frightening as it demonstrates that anyone with access to your phone or to your back-up files will be able to see where you have been since you installed iOS 4 on your phone.last_img read more
