Mobile phones belonging to Spain’s prime minister and defense minister were infected with Pegasus spyware last year, a government spokesman said today.
In May 2021, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s mobile phone was hacked twice, while Defense Minister Margarita Robles’ device was hacked once in June of that year. The information was confirmed to journalists by Presidential Minister Felix Bolaños at a morning press conference.
We have no doubt that this is an illegal, unauthorized interference. This comes from third party government organizations and does not have a court sanction.
The Pegasus spyware used in the hack is produced by Israeli security firm NSO, which says it only sells the software to government agencies. Bolaños said technical reports from Spain’s National Cryptology Center estimated the amount of data extracted from the two devices. In total, 2.6 GB of information was stolen from the phone of the Prime Minister of Spain during the first attack, 130 MB during the second, and 9 GB of data were stolen from the Minister of Defense.
Last year, French President Emmanuel Macron was among 14 current or former heads of state on a list of potential Pegasus targets. He even change the smartphone as well as the mobile phone number after the appearance of this information.
Former CIA and NSA special agent Edward Snowden said the scandal would be the story of the year.
The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has published a press release on the satisfaction of Americans with certain brands and devices. In this document, we are most interested in smartphones.
And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.
Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.
If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.
A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.
The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.
120W charging, 120Hz screen, 256GB of storage, and fancy design in a $300 smartphone. Infinix Note 12 VIP introduced
Gradually, technologies that were just recently available only in some flagship smartphones are appearing in low-cost devices. And if there are doubts about the 10x optical zoom in a $ 250 smartphone, then there is no doubt about the Infinix Note 12 VIP.
And this smartphone stands out because at a price of $ 300 it supports 120-watt charging! The manufacturer focuses on 103 protection functions that should secure the device. The battery capacity is 4500 mAh. Infinix says it only takes 17 minutes to fully charge.
But this is not all that the new product will please for its money. For example, it also uses a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution with support for 120 Hz. In addition, there is 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory. A microSD card slot is present.
The main camera of the smartphone is characterized by a resolution of 108 megapixels. There’s also a 13MP ultra-wide and a depth sensor. The resolution of the front camera is 16 megapixels.
But the platform here can be disappointing, given the price. This is MediaTek Helio G96. The manufacturer also notes a high-quality Dual X-Axis vibration motor, a nine-layer graphene cooling system, stereo speakers and a headphone jack. Dimensions are 163.5 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm with a weight of 198 g.
