We were happy to take advantage of the free food on offer when we attended this years’ UEL Creative Arts Alumni event. The featured work impressed the ducks which was designed by students and alumni of UEL's visual and performing arts programmes.
Last week the much-anticipated HP Touchpad was unveiled officially by Hewlett-Packard at the HP WebOS event. The features of the device have really impressed Danny: “The original Palm Pre offered the excellent 'card' based multi tasking. The first generation Palm Pre was let down by hardware performance and a slow pace of upgrades. Cyber-Duck is a Web OS accredited development firm and we are looking forward to producing some new web and native apps for these exciting new HP devices.”
Google Chrome has a new extension allowing users to block 'spammy' results. The extension will tell Google the URL of the web page on which the blocked or unblocked search results are displayed and could affect Google search results in the future.
An Android Malware named ADRD (aka Trojan:Android/Adrd.A) is affecting handheld devices for black-hat SEO purposes. The malware downloads a list of search URLs and then performs those searches at random in the background, which leads to excessive data charges. The Malware then fools the search engine in to thinking that the mobile user is using these keywords to copy search processes, creating searches in the search engine yielding the top results for those keywords and clicking on specific results.
