VIRUS ALERT! Over 850k devices affected by A New Godless Android malware

This malware seem to have already gone viral and out of control, targeting over 850,000 Android devices that had been affected.
There had been confirmation by TREND MICRO (a Security firm) that the new malware is known as "Godless" (ANDROIDOS_GODLESS.HRX) that especially targets Android devices having a set of rooting exploits in its pocket, it uses multiple methods to exploit and can attack virtually devices running Android Lollipop or lower versions.

How the Godless Android Malware attacks:

It was found out that the malware utilizes the open source android-rooting-tools framework, which contains exploits for well-known vulnerabilities such as PingPongRoot and Towelroot.
Once it finds its way onto a device and roots it, the malware installs a backdoor for remote access that can be used to download unwanted apps and advertisements, as well as apps that can spy on users.

Its Distribution

The malware is distributed via infected apps, even those on PlayStore are not innocent of it. As it aslo exists on utility apps like your Flashlight, Wi-Fi apps and exists in some popular games. One app was unleashed to have the malware, the malicious app is known as  “Summer Flashlight” that contains the malicious Godless code.

Interestingly, Trend Micro also unveiled that there are clean apps on the Play Store that contain the same developer's certificate through which the malware can be distributed. Once any upgrade is made, the user may be attacked by the malware without knowing it.

As much as clean Apps may be affected on Playstore, it is advised that users should always have antivirus apps installed and also practice safe browsing and installation of popular games and apps by using only trusted stores on Amazon and Google Play. They're advised to also carefully look out for app reviews.

Battle of the Titans: Paper Books vs eBooks

There are a lot of ways to spend your free time - from relaxing and procrastinating to going in for extreme sports. And everything seems pretty normal for different people. Let's take, for instance, reading. It can be called an intellectual hobby. Or not?

The pros of reading

It was already said a lot about all benefits of reading. It leads, first of all, to mental stimulation. You don’t just find out new things, but also develop your thinking and analytical skills.
People who read books have richer vocabulary, but what is even more important you have wider outlook. Together with some facts you find the ability to analyze those facts and find your own point of view.
Reading strengthens your memory. It also improves focus and concentration.
Reading can also reduce stress and leads to tranquility. On the other hand, it is the best way to escape from all your problems to another one, maybe, even to find solutions to all the problems.
The more books you read the better your writing skills become. You become able to freely express your thoughts in a written form and do it without mistakes. It slowly influences your communicational skills and let you become better and interesting talker.
Needless to say that reading boosts your imagination and creativity, filling your mind with new expressive colorful images and great ideas

What people read

If the question about why people read doesn’t have an answer (or doesn’t need an answer) finding out what people read may be pretty interesting.
The wide variety of genres, writers and directions in literature let everyone find something interesting. Even cheap literature, which seems to be completely worthless, may have its own benefits. Maybe, it is a start that will cause great interest to literature in general.
But actually when asking about what people read you will mostly hear not about genres, writers or something like that, but about paper books and eBooks. During the last decade, these old school and technologically advanced sources of reading have faced a lot of comparisons and severe battles. The reason is simple and a bit weird, we’d say: people are trying to decide what is better and what is going to remain in the future. But is there a point in this?


The first books appeared thousands of years ago. They were one of the main sources of information and entertainment. But a lot has changed, and nowadays a lot of people claim that paper books are necessary.
Of course, you may think of ecology and trees wasted for paper. But is that really the biggest problem for ecology? Instead of this, think about the feelings that holding a paper book gives you. It is the only way to realize how much work was done and how many people work on it. You feel every page under your fingers, you can put a marker or make an accurate note to save a place you like. It will never switch off just because you’ve forgotten to charge a battery. Every paper book seems to live its own life and style. And if you like reading, you also wanted to have a huge library with a lot of shelves with different books standing there.



Actually, you can put markers and notes here, too, but it is not that convenient. Nevertheless, eBooks have a lot of strong points. For example, a small gadget comfortable to hold and with minimal weight can become storage for thousands of books, magazines and whatever else you can read. You can download and open documents of a dozen of formats. It is really convenient to carry with you all the time and thanks to e-ink technology is safe for your sight. What is more, it is way much cheaper. There are a lot of free eBooks, and prices for those you need to buy are lower than for paper books. It also doesn’t require any additional storage space.

Both eBooks and classic paper books have their own pros and cons, which every time balance the scales in this opposition. In the end, it is not important where you read a text from. It is important that you do read. And if you cannot decide what is better personally for you, you can find both paper and eBooks in Hobbies – Art – Sport category on
Maybe you are going to order both an eBook and some paper books. Feel the difference yourself, or just enrich your collection. It will be great anyway.

This is Why Siri May Get Better than Google Now (Voice search actions)

At the WWDC 2016 event, big announcements were made about some sweet updates coming to iOS 10. After watching the Apple announcement of Sirikit, how it's been made open for developers to tweak it as they please, if you go through the video as an Android user, you may ask yourself same questions as I did, why we don't have this feature on Android?

Of course we have it, but it's not open. Google introduced Google Now voice actions API two years ago but this is limited to system voice actions like set alarm, remind me etc (check out the full list here =>

According to a Reddit user for Android threads, in this same time they announced custom voice actions where devs can implement custom action ( ).

API wasn't open and devs weren't able to make a request to participate in the program. Today, two years later, API is still not open and if Google doesn't open it quickly, they may be in a situation where Siri will be more useful than Google now .
People, not just developers want to be able to tell it a specific action to take, without necessarily say "OK Google"

This Video of Camera Lens Breakthrough Proves Smartphones can soon outperform DSLRs

Some years back some photographers had decided to ditch their awesome DSLR and take a completely different approach to photography. If I were among them, I would wish the same thing they did, that I didn’t want a task to haul around, however, still be able to take respectable pictures.

The camera people use itself wasn’t so much the problem; it was the lenses. With rare exception, the heavier a camera’s lens, the better its quality (and the higher its price). Smartphones didn’t provide the image quality photographers were after (I’ll be honest, they still don’t) but that’s by the way.

Recent developments had sparked up that proves Researchers at Harvard have developed a lens designed of quartz that’s coated with variant microscopic titanium dioxide towers organized in specific patterns to focus light-weight. the end result is that lightweight centered through a 600nm “metalens” can achieve constant resolution and magnification as a traditional 5-6cm glass lens.

The best part yet to happen according to the video about Shrinking microscope lenses (by Science Magazine on YouTube) below shows that metalenses are far cheaper to produce than traditional glass lenses and are fully compatible with silicon chip technology. Once researchers focus the entire visible spectrum into the same focal length using metalenses, they’ll be able to place them into smartphones, microscopes, DSLRs or any other imaging devices.

Assuming everything pans out, we don’t know if the prices of such phones will increase but we might see smartphones with DSLR-quality cameras arrive sooner than we expect.

FIX - PES 2016 refused to Start on Windows 10, Crashes and other Common Errors

After moving to Windows 10 (while doing so, the operating system kept my files, I didn't lose a thing) all my programs were still working fine, except when I tried to launch my PES 2016. Initially on Windows 7, it was running perfectly before I performed the Windows OS upgrade. See Ocean Of Games for requirements or Download the game.

  • Playing PES 2016 on Windows 10, I faced Two errors at start and below were how I fixed them, including solutions to other Errors you might be facing on playing or starting the game. Don't worry, I maintain my usual culture here, keeping the steps simple as possible.

1. DLL issues - sdkencryptedappticket.dll - Not found, dll missing or corrupt errors - The game refused to start, showing a pop up with that message.
Fix: You can manually download the DLL and move it to C:\Windows\System32
or Choose DOWNLOAD SDKENCRYPTEDAPPTICKET.DLL FIXER, using internet, the software automatically installs and fix the DLL.

2. Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2016 refusing to start - it closes after loading a black/blank pop up.
I fixed it but before I did, this part was more tricky, I had to check on my nVidia settings, Configured GPU for the game, etc. I didn't do all that when the game worked fine before I moved to Windows 10. It wasn't necessary in this case. My Laptop had all the requirements yet the game wouldn't start.

i.) Uninstall the game (PES 2016)
ii.) If you have an Antivirus, DISABLE IT.
Also Hit your Windows Start button, search for "Windows Defender" >> turn it Off. Now re-install the game again. It should play afterwards on your Windows 10.

Other Common PES 2016 Bugs, Errors and Fixes

a) Update your drivers:

Many people ignore this step, if you are one of them, then you are completely wrong. Updating the drivers is compulsory for every “Latest game”. First of all.

Go to Command prompt (Windows button + R)
Now, type “DRIVERQUERY” and click enter
Now, you can see the results of drivers and the last updated dates. If they were not update since 6 months ago, then we recommend you have to update early because nVidia and AMD have released latest drivers for this game.

To update your drivers, we recommend you to use Driver Scanner.

After downloading, you need to perform a complete system scan with it.
From there, you can update the drivers by one click.

b) Try to run the game in compatibility mode select “Windows Service Pack 3”

c) Disable V-sync and triple buffering and restart the game. If it didn’t work, then revert back the changes.

d) Configure your nVidia -  If your PC uses nVidia Graphic card, go into nVidia control panel, add your game.exe and make it “use NVidia GPU” this too can resolve this issue. Also, go to NVidia control panel and check if game.exe has two instances. If at all, there are two instances, set both to use your specific GPU instead of automatic.
