Nexus 6 Users Start Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat Update, October Android Security Update Released

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The October security update resolves more than 40 issues
  • This security bulletin has two security patch level strings
  • Factory Images and OTA images are live

After promising the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE devices would get the Android 7.0 Nougat update in “the coming weeks” in the middle of September, Google has finally made good on its promise – at least for the Nexus 6. The update was released alongside the monthly Android security update for Nexus and Pixel devices. According to the security bulletin, Google has released two security patch level strings, one on October 1 and the other on October 5. The first one is partial patch with few bug fixes, while the October 5 patch brings crucial fixes and is the final version.

In August, the Android 7.0 Nougat update was first released to Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C tablet, and Android One General Mobile 4G devices only; while the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE were left out. However, Google has finally started rolling the Android Nougat update out to Nexus 6 users as well. The factory image and the OTA build are available on Google’s developer pages, while the OTA update should be rolling out soon. The update is about 860MB in size, and has the build number NBD90Z. The update carries the October security patch as well, reports Android Police.

This comes just hours before the big Google event. The tech giant is expected to unveil two new Pixel smartphones, alongside the first Android Nougat maintenance release. We expect the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones to run on Android Nougat 7.1 out-of-the-box, and this update will bring significant improvements along with it.

For now, we have the security patch releasing to all compatible Nexus and Pixel devices, and factory images and OTA images have gone live as well. Between the two patches Google has fixed more than 40 issues including over two-dozen high severity issues and five critical problems.

The security bulletin assures that OEM partners were notified about the issues, and source code patches for these issues will be released to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository in the next 48 hours.

7 Ways Perfection is Killing Your Business – or Is It 6?

Problems with Perfection: 7 Ways Perfection is Killing Your Business

Can we ever truly be perfect, in anything?  Possibly, but that perfection is often short-lived.  As a society, we are always seeking ‘perfection’, and as such, we are often quick to label something as perfect, even when it is not.  A perfect stranger, a perfect storm, a perfect match or a perfect crime perhaps.

But if striving for perfection is part of your business personality, it could be damaging your ability to reach the point of product or solution launch; therefore your problems with perfection could be harming your ability to innovate.

Heck, when I launched most of my blogs or businesses, they were a mess, but they got out there and generated the buzz and citations needed to succeed. SEJ, which after three years became a six figure blog, had a disastrous template design upon launch, but I needed to get it out there at the right time, and then be flexible and nimble enough to make changes. Now, it’s a leading influencer in the world of digital marketing.

If you are running your business trying to adhere to this impossible standard, then you may be in trouble.

Here are seven problems with perfection that are killing your business.

Beware these Problems with Perfection

Makes You Slow to Market

In marketing strategy, there is an advantage known as FMA or first-mover advantage, where the first to market often gains a great initial advantage over competitors. Recent literature has suggested that that first-movers may be at a disadvantage, failing around 47 percent of the time, with ‘fast-followers’ (8 percent failure rate) being the real market winners because they can improve on newly launched products or services and reduce cost and inefficiencies.

No matter if you are first to market, or join slightly after, being one of the first is crucial to business success.  Unless you do something significantly different than any major competitor, and these are few and far between, then you must launch products or services effectively and efficiently.

Perfectionists often obsess over every minute detail, often delaying products and/or launches, which ultimately cause decreases in success metrics.

Founder of Linkedin, Reid Hoffman, said “If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.”

Obviously, your products and strategies should be well vetted and tested, but lack of speed kills.  Accept that perfection is unobtainable and set realistic launch goals.  Pick a small group of trusted associates or customers to test new products, and provide feedback.  You can always make adjustments and improvements along the way.  Remember the first cars weren’t even sold with windshield wipers because no one ever thought people would take them out in the rain.  As your customers inform you what changes or improvements need to be made, you can address them. Proving your use and delivering on your promises are more important to customers than perfection.

Robs Your Project of its Dynamism

Sometimes, trying to make something perfect can remove the energy and desire.  Think about the best presentation you have ever seen, or maybe just one with 28 million views.

You can practice a presentation 100 times, and still not be prepared for a question, or something that happens in that room, up at that table or podium.  So why stress over it?  Giving a presentation is as much about presenting yourself as it is content or facts.

People want to see someone they can relate to, and as it is often said, no one is perfect.  You should always properly prepare for a presentation, but don’t sit in the back of the room tinkering for perfection, walk around and introduce yourself.  Start a few conversations to see if you can find some interesting details to include in your presentation.

Show your audience that you are aware of them, that you can relate to them, and that you are just like them, a normal non-perfect individual that has something extremely important to convey to them.  That will go much further than an extra bullet point on a screen full of text that no one will read.

Keeps You Waiting for that Perfect Opportunity

Are you the kind of person that is always looking for the perfect opportunity?  You’ve probably noticed a running theme by now, but no opportunity is perfect.  It is generally more a matter of pros and cons.  If you gain more pros by engaging in a new opportunity, you should generally go for it.  Always be on the lookout for new opportunities for your business.  Come up with a uniform system of evaluating each one.

Select the ones that make the most sense, and tackle any hurdles as they come along.  Not every opportunity is going to work out, but some of them will, and when you look back you’ll see how imperfect the situation was at the beginning and the steps you took to improve it.

This strategy will also help you evolve as a business person as you learn what works and what doesn’t.  As Wayne Gretzky said, “you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”

Sabotages Confidence and Self-Belief

One of the most encompassing deficiencies of perfection is that it can sabotage confidence and self-belief.  If you are afraid to launch a product or service, or pitch a new strategy until you think it is perfect, and then when you do, it is criticized, it can be crushing.  I’m sure you’ve probably been on social media lately, and if so, you know that someone has a comment for everything.  If you own or run a business, commenting is what you hire people to do, and if you are an employee, it is what you get paid for.  However, if you think something is perfect, and are told it is not, it can ruin your confidence, and this can stifle productivity.

Remember, innovations are built by teams, and no success has been free from criticism.  Use it to constantly improve.  Perfection can be something that is striven for, but rarely obtained.  Don’t dwell on criticism, use it to refine and enhance.

Prevets Your Getting From Start to Finish

In many phases of business, things are constantly evolving and never actually finished.  Think about a business plan, or target customers.  You should always be updating plans and trying to obtain new customers, but it is important to set milestones and plans that can actually be finished.  It will give you a sense of accomplishment and vigor and inspire your next cycle of innovation.

Perfectionists are often cited as not being able to finish anything because there is always something that can be changed to try and reach that unobtainable level of perfection.  Think about how this article started. Speed is an asset that perfection doesn’t allow.

Your milestones should be realistic times or events that allow you to move to the next step.  Be sure to evaluate and address areas for improvement in each subsequent step, as you try to achieve a more perfect outcome.

Destroys Vital Conditions for Creativity

Creativity and curiosity are born from chaos.  Always trying to be perfect eliminates your inclination to take risks and innovate.  You need to be creative to thrive in business.  There was a time when people said selling books online was crazy because users were scared to use credit cards on the web, the shipping costs would eat up any money that was saved and people would have to wait a week for a book that they could have today at any store or public library.

You probably already know where this is going, but today Amazon is rated as the tenth most profitable brand in the world.  They certainly had their growing pains, but used feedback from mistakes to grow into the behemoth they are today.

Don’t be afraid to embrace chaos.  Again, striving for perfection can certainly be a goal, but it is often created from bedlam.  Make sure you get uncomfortable from time to time; it can help you create something you can’t yet fathom, but could fundamentally improve your business.

Nothing’s Perfect

Especially this posting.  The title stated you were going to get 7 ways perfection is killing your business, but there were only 6.  I just wanted to leave some room for improvement, as you should too, because nothing is perfect, or more perfect.

Strive for consistency, not perfection and your business will thrive no matter the environment, product or competitor.

Have some more ways that perfection could be killing your business? Please feel free to leave them in the comments below.

Apple Is Sued Over Unresponsive iPhone 6 Touchscreens

Apple Is Sued Over Unresponsive iPhone 6 Touchscreens

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Design defect causes the phones’ touchscreens to become unresponsive
  • Apple has long been aware of the defect but has refused to fix it
  • Apple accused of fraud and violating California consumer protection laws

Apple has been sued by owners of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones who say a design defect causes the phones’ touchscreens to become unresponsive, making them unusable.

According to a proposed nationwide class-action lawsuit filed on Saturday, Apple has long been aware of the defect, which often surfaces after a flickering gray bar appears atop the touchscreens, but has refused to fix it.

The plaintiffs linked the problem to Apple’s decision not to use a metal “shield” or “underfill” to protect the relevant parts, as it did on versions of the iPhone 5.

“The iPhones are not fit for the purpose of use as smartphones because of the touchscreen defect,” according to the complaint filed in federal court in San Jose, California.

Todd Cleary of California, Jun Bai of Delaware and Thomas Davidson of Pennsylvania are the named plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which accuses Apple of fraud and violating California consumer protection laws. They seek unspecified damages.

Apple did not immediately respond on Monday to a request for comment.

x

Problems with iPhone 6 touchscreens were described online last week by iFixit, which labeled the issue “Touch Disease”.

That company sells repair parts and has previously analyzed other Apple products.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, sold 166.4 million iPhones, generating $108.5 billion (roughly Rs. 728,089 crores) of net sales, in the first nine months of its current fiscal year.

The case is Davidson et al v. Apple Inc, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, No. 16-04942.

6 More Predictions For Web Design in 2016

Predictions For Web Design In 2016

With 2016 well and truly underway, we are becoming more aware of what is (and isn’t) popular for web design at the moment. If you were reading blogs and articles in the final days of 2015, trying to get on top of all the projected trends for this year, you might be surprised at what has emerged so far. We have picked 6 of the predictions that we believe have started to come to fruition already and shared them with you in the list below.

 

  1. User-Centered Design
    Research has shown that the average user spends 10 to 20 seconds on a web page before leaving. The only way to improve this is by having clear value proposition, which is in keeping with Google’s newest edition of their Quality Guidelines. Basically, content that is above the fold will be ranked better than content that is hidden below it.
  2. More Single Page Design
    There’s so much clutter online today, so it should come as no surprise that minimalist web design is on the rise. It is expected that single page designs will grow in popularity this year as a result of decreasing attention spans, impatient users and a desire for instant gratification. Users no longer want to scroll through multiple pages.
  3. Responsive Design
    Whilst responsive web design has been a trend for many years now, it is becoming even more important in this day and age. Website owners haven’t taken the importance of this design seriously until now, as Google began to penalise websites that weren’t mobile-friendly. It is considered far better to go with responsive than a separate mobile design.
  4. Speed is a Necessity
    This is another aspect that has always been important, but now websites that ignore speed are really going to suffer. Research has shown that our attention span has decreased significantly over the years – from 12 seconds in 2000 to 8 seconds in 2015 – if users have to wait for your pages to load, they’re going to go elsewhere.
  5. Scalable Vector Graphics
    More commonly known as SVG, these started to grow in prominence throughout 2015. Even Google redesigned their logo to make it a smaller, cleaner SVG file. These sorts of graphics are becoming more mainstream because they’re presented as vectors, which can scale regardless of the resolution of the device they’re being viewed upon.
  6. Modular Design
    Although the average media website publishing hundreds of articles every day, content-rich sites have always seemed to struggle with organisation. Modular design can help to solve this problem by making content more presentable thanks to a block grid pattern. You can showcase more content whilst avoiding clutter.

We hope that the above list of web design predictions for 2016 has given you an idea of what to expect should you be planning to have your website redone at some point. Whilst you by no means need to include all of the points that have been outlined above, we certainly hope that you will consider each of them thoroughly in regards to your business, your website and your overall needs – this will result in a truly successful experience.
