Browser Privacy Issue with Few HTC Devices

Browser Privacy Issue with Few HTC Devices

There appears to be an issue with HTC Droid Incredible, HTC Droid Eris, HTC Evo and maybe other devices that run Sense UI.

BGR reports browser privacy bug, where phone would periodically make a screenshot of the contents of your web browser and never delete it.

Furthermore, deleting browser history or even hard-resetting device will still leave those JPEG files in place.

If you want to get rid of them now, navigate to emmc folder and seek for .bookmark_thumb1, that’s where those files are placed.

By | June 12, 2010 | 5 Comments

64-bit Flash is No MoreIt looks like with the recent Flash 10.1 Final release, Adobe has also removed 64-bit Flash Player (for Linux) from their web page.

While company failed to provide any real reason for such change and simply said:

The Flash Player 10.1 64-bit Linux beta is closed. We remain committed to delivering 64-bit support in a future release of Flash Player.

Recent page update has clarified that they are still working on 64-bit Flash Player for all major platforms and will deliver it in an upcoming major Flash Player release.

We have temporarily closed the Labs program of Flash Player 10 for 64-bit Linux, as we are making significant architectural changes to the 64-bit Linux Flash Player and additional security enhancements.
