Remember how a temporary Internet Explorer bug fix was pushed to the masses yesterday by Microsoft? Well, knowing German efficiency, it is most likely that the government does not want to take any chances with computers in the country getting compromised, hence the German government has issued word to the public to stop using Microsoft?s Internet Explorer browser temporarily, at least until the bug is fixed so that PCs will no longer be vulnerable to hacker attacks, at least from that perspective.
According to the German government?s Federal Office for Information Security, or BSI in short, they are aware of targeted attacks and all it takes is the simple act of luring Web surfers to a website where hackers had previously planted malicious software which are able to exploit the bug. A statement was recorded, where ?a fast spreading of the code has to be feared.? Are you still rocking to Internet Explorer?By Ubergizmo.

China-based ZTE has, on paper, a power packed smartphone in the pipeline, but it seems as though it will be released in China only without any outward sign that a US rollout is imminent. The hardware specifications do pack a punch at first glance, with the Grand Era U985 running on a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, where it is accompanied by a 4.5″ 720p display alongside an 8-megapixel camera located at the back. Since it will be released in China, the ZTE Grand Era U985 smartphone will support local TD-SCDMA networks.
According to ZTE, they say that the Grand Era U985 is the slimmest quad-core smartphone, but extravagant claims need to be inspected closer, and if you were to take the ZTE Grand Era U985 at its slimmest point, then 7.9mm would beat out the rest of the field, but bear in mind that it has an all-round 8.6 mm thickness across its body. Legalists would say that the LG Optimus G wins hands down with an all-round thickness of a mere 8.45mm. There is no word on pricing just yet. [Press Release]By Ubergizmo.

Windows Phone 7.8 is said to offer a semblance of what Windows Phone 8 is all about for Windows Phone-powered devices that will not be getting the Windows Phone 8 upgrade, and the venerable HTC HD7 is privileged to receive the Windows Phone 7.8 Beta ROM recently, making it the very first Windows Phone 7.8 Beta ROM to boot. This particular ROM release is known by its build number of 7.10.8835.35, although it has its roots from a Tango 12180 dump from a Nokia device. There was minimal testing done before the Beta ROM was released, so you can be sure that this is far from the finished article.
Do remember to proceed at your own risk if you are interested, and be prepared for a very raw Windows Phone 7.8 experience since there will be no support for homebrew apps, although you can always opt to re-flash your HTC HD7 with a Windows Phone 7.5 ROM at a later period. We did catch a leaked ROM of Windows Phone 7.8 on the Lumia 800 this month as well just in case you own the Nokia device.By Ubergizmo.

We do know that tomorrow is going to be a big day for HTC in New York City, as Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC is tipped to announce at least one new Windows Phone 8-powered smartphone at the event. There are other folks out there who think that Microsoft?s Windows Phone 8 is not going to take all the plaudits on September 19th though, as there is also a fair number of speculators who figure out that HTC also has a new flagship Android-powered device in tow, namely the HTC One X+.
What you see above is another teaser from HTC, and the date below clearly alludes to the fact that September 19th is going to see the announcement of at least one new handset, although we cannot quite put our finger on just what that particular phone will be at this point in time. Which model do you think that HTC will be introducing to the world? Would a HTC developed phablet be too much to ask for? We say get the show done and over with, as Apple has already released their trump card in the smartphone industry for the year, it is time to see how the other players will shape their game.By Ubergizmo.

Less than a week ago, Blizzard released World of Warcraft patch 5.0.5 that we found to be most useful, especially when it comes to fixing the frame rate issue that plagued gamers who had patch 5.0.4 running, where even reasonably high end hardware still experienced dropped frame rates. Well, additional details on the hotfixes found in World of Warcraft patch 5.0.5 have been released by Blizzard, and it would be prudent to bear in mind that some of these issues are unable to be addressed without a client-side patch update. Do expect the list below (which clearly is not a comprehensive one) to be updated in the days to come when extra hotfixes are applied.Ubergizmo.

This is rather strange, as the press release page which was spotted a few hours ago is no longer available, while the product page on Samsung itself has also gone missing. I am referring to the Samsung Galaxy Rush from Boost Mobile, where it will retail for $149.99 a pop. This is a budget-friendly Android-powered smartphone as it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice, a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for those vanity shots as well as video conversations.
It will be Wi-Fi and GPS enabled, carries Bluetooth connectivity, supports services like Boost Zone, Mobile ID and Google Mobile Apps, all with a 1GHz processor keeping things running smoothly. The Samsung Galaxy Rush will be paired to Boost Mobile?s no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. To put it in a nutshell, each six on-time payments will reduce the cost of Boost Mobile?s Monthly Unlimited plan by $5, with a minimum payment of $40 monthly for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, Web, email and calls to 411. I wonder where the product page has gone to…By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Samsung SPH-M930 picks up FCC nod, headed for Boost Mobile, Samsung slider for Boost Mobile spotted in the wild,
