NewsON Puts Local News in Your Pocket
NewsON on Wednesday launched a free, ad-supported app that offers
instant access to broadcast-quality local newscasts and clips. Users can
search by market for curated content linked to breaking news from 118
stations in 90 markets, covering about 75 percent of the U.S. All top 10
U.S. markets, as well as 17 of the top 20, 40 of the top 50, and 73 of
the top 100 are participating.

Cortana for iOS Enters Beta Territory
Microsoft this week launched a survey for Windows Insiders, seeking
candidates for a limited beta of Cortana for iOS. "We're testing the
Cortana for iOS app with a limited number of users in the U.S. and China
before releasing [it] publicly," said Microsoft spokesperson Jennifer
Reynolds. The full app is slated for release later this year. Selected
testers will get the app in the next few weeks.

Mobile Malware's Growth Slows, Nastiness Grows
The good news about mobile malware in 2015 is that growth has slowed
down. The bad news is that the malware entering the market is more
virulent than ever. While there hasn't been a sharp rise in the volume
of mobile malware this year, the increasingly malicious nature of the
types of malware and attacks is alarming, Blue Coat Systems said last
week in its 2015 Mobile Malware Report.

GALPon MiniNo Makes Kid-Friendly Lightweight Linux
GALPon MiniNo is one of the strangest and most distinctive Linux distros
to grace the Linux Picks and Pans computer screens. Those two traits
make it an almost ideal option for anyone looking for a reliable
operating system for youngsters and educational facilities that cater to
early education students. PicarOS Diego 2015 is the latest in the GALPon
MiniNo family of Linux products.
