Tizen Android App Compatibility OpenMobile ACL


Recommended Posts

One thing that every new OS struggles with is apps and the ecosystem of apps. To compete with Android and iOS, you have to bring in users so that developers will want to develop for the OS. These are the struggles with Tizen, webOS, and Firefox in the short term. In the long term, they could be viable alternatives.


One way to ensure users will convert would be to tap into the Android Market of apps. Not an easy task but OpenMobile promises to bring a compatibility layer to Tizen so the Android apps will run in the environment.




OpenMobile's Application Compatibility Layer (ACL)™ enables Android apps to run on non-Android operating systems, ACL for Tizen is coming soon!  With ACL, Tizen can be filled with a robust app ecosystem featuring hundreds of thousands of apps, no matter the device: smartphone, tablet, smart TV, in-vehicle infotainment, in-flight infotainment, etc. ACL will deliver a powerful app ecosystem on platforms never before possible.

      If you’re looking for the best Android tablet, then you’ve got more than a few options to choose from. The open-source nature of the Android platform has enabled a lot of companies to make their own devices, which means you’ll need to sift through them all to find the one that fits your needs. Luckily, we can help.
      If you want the best Android tablet, then you’ve got a few things to look out for. First, think about why you need the tablet. Are you going to use it for writing or productivity work? Do you want to watch a lot of shows or movies on it? Do you plan to play games on it often? Or is it just something you’ll use occasionally. You’ll also want to think about what kind of apps you plan to use, and whether you’re confident side-loading apps, too.
      Once you’ve figured all of that out, you can start narrowing down the list. We’ve also put together a handy breakdown of some of the best Android tablets out there, too, which should make it easier for you to find one that works for you. If you aren’t tied to the Android operating system, we also recommend checking out our best tablets guide for even more options.
      Best Android tablet overall: Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
      Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
      The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 represents the very best that Android tablets can offer, with a premium build, powerful internals, and more.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Fast charging Samsung DeX support A plethora of peripherals Cons
      Pricey Amazon$779.99Best Buy$699.99 Few Android tablets have managed to get close to the overall performance and functionality of Apple’s iPads. If you had to choose the closet option, though, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is one of the best. This Samsung-manufactured tablet combines standard features like fast charging combined with a beautiful 11 or 12.4-inch display, depending on which model you get.
      Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Galaxy Tab S8, though, is the ease at which the device turns into a portable PC. This makes it easy to equip the tablet with various peripherals, including those that make use of Samsung DeX. The 2560 x 1600 display means clean and slick visuals, while a 120Hz refresh rate ensures smooth performance in games and applications.
      The biggest downside for the Tab S8 comes down to its price. It is considered expensive for an Android tablet, but you’re getting a lot for the price. That said, it’s also worth considering the even higher-end Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, if you’re truly looking for the best of the best. All three tablets offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is Qualcomm’s highest-end chipset to date.
      Best Android tablet for students: Amazon Fire HD 10
      Amazon Fire HD 10
      If you’re looking for a solid tablet on a strict budget, then it’s worth considering the Amazon Fire HD 10, which offers a range of features at a pretty low price.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Built-in Alexa support Productivity bundle turns it into a mini laptop Support for up to 1TB of external storage Cons
      Low RAM Not the highest-performing machine No Google Play Amazon$149.99$99.99 In 2011, Amazon launched the Kindle Fire, which would go on to birth a myriad of Amazon Fire tablets over the coming years. One of the latest offerings, the Amazon Fire HD 10 brings all the benefits of previous Amazon tablets to the table, with some added bonuses. If you’re looking for a solid Android tablet that gives you access to Alexa, then we highly recommend the Amazon Fire HD 10.
      This tablet also isn’t as expensive as some other options out there, and you can find a few different configurations available on Amazon when purchasing it. If you’re a student, then one of the best options out there is the Productivity bundle. This bundle combines the Amazon Fire HD 10 with Microsoft Office 365 and a detachable keyboard peripheral. It’s the perfect tablet-to-laptop combination, and it’s easy to switch between the two modes depending on what you need. Amazon also runs sales on the Fire tablets constantly, so you can usually find one for a discount if you wait long enough.
      The biggest downside with choosing an Amazon tablet over a more traditional Android tablet, though, is Google Play Store access. You can still sideload the Play Store on the tablet, but if you aren’t comfortable doing so, you may find yourself disappointed with the limited available apps on the Amazon App Store.
      Best Android tablet for kids: Amazon Fire 7 Kids Pro

      Built-in parental controls Protective case Cons
      Features can be limiting for older kids Amazon$99.99$49.99 If you’re looking for an Android tablet that comes with great parental control options and doesn’t break the bank, then Amazon’s Fire 7 Kids Pro is a perfect fit.
      This tablet blends all the lovely features of Amazon’s other Fire tablets with a kid-friendly design. The tablet is surrounded by a protective case, which is perfect for kids to hold onto. You’ll also find a slew of built-in parental control options, which makes it easy to keep track of what your kids are doing on their tablets. You can also set up guards that keep your kids from talking with strangers on their tablets, and approve certain contacts they are allowed to speak to.
      The Amazon Fire 7 Kids Pro also comes with ready access to Amazon Kids+, a special feature-rich system designed to provide your kids with shows, books, and kid-friendly games they can play. Kids can read content from National Geographic, Rabbids Coding, LEGO, and more. It’s a great way to put interactive content in front of kids, and the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Pro won’t cost you a small fortune to get them set up with their first smart device.
      Best budget Android tablet: Amazon Fire HD 8
      Amazon Fire HD 8
      If you just want a solid Android tablet for media consumption and basic social media, then the Amazon Fire HD 8 is the way to go.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Multiple bundle options Long battery life Cons
      No Google Play Amazon$89.99$49.99 If you need a good tablet that’s under $100 and offers a solid experience, then Amazon’s Fire HD 8 is a good choice. This tablet builds off the success of the company’s Fire 7, but adds more storage and overall power. You’ll find access to a ton of apps on the Amazon App Store, as well as easy access to Alexa and other Amazon-powered services.
      The only real downside here compared to other budget tablets out there is that Amazon’s version of Android doesn’t come with the Google Play Store installed by default. You can sideload the app, giving you access to more applications via the Play Store, but sideloading can be a bit technical for users who don’t know how to do it.
      You’ll find support for up to 12 hours of battery life on the Amazon Fire HD 8. The included 2GB of RAM, which should also be enough for basic tasks. It’s not as high of RAM as you’d see in the more expensive options on our list, but budget devices come with their own sacrifices. Like all of Amazon’s other tablets, the Fire HD 8 also comes with Amazon Kids, the company’s built-in parental controls. You can use it to control screen time, determine which apps can be installed, and more.
      If you want a solid tablet that isn’t going to break the bank, then the Amazon Fire HD 8 is one of the best budget offerings you’ll find out there.
      Best budget Android tablet with Google Play: Lenovo Tab P11+
      Lenovo Tab P11+
      If you prefer to stick with a budget tablet that has the Google Play Store on it, then the Lenovo Tab P11+ is the tablet to go for.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Good-looking display Solid performance for the price Cons
      Cameras aren't great Amazon$279.99Best Buy$279.99 If you’re looking for a budget Android tablet that does come with the Google Play Store, then it’s worth considering the Lenovo Tab P11+. This tablet looks and feels premium, offers a solid set of features, and doesn’t break the bank.
      Under the hood, the Lenovo Tab P11+ comes with a MediaTek Helio G90T processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It’s not the fastest tablet out there, but it should be able to handle most basic tasks that users will throw at it.
      The tablet also comes with Android 11, and Lenovo says it will get an update to Android 12 — but you shouldn’t expect it to get anything beyond Android 12.

      Tigers, lions, bears, giraffes, pandas, foxes… These are some of the wild animals that live in Everland, the Land of Fantasy. Everland takes care of endangered animals by making sure that they are raised in an environment closest to their natural habitats and organizes a variety of ecological programs to help visitors learn about the importance of nature and all living things. To dive into the world of the mysterious world of animals, Samsung Global Newsroom has created its Online Zoo series by capturing the animals with various Samsung devices.
      Today, June 21, is World Giraffe Day as designated by the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF). This day was assigned to make collaborative efforts to prevent the extinction of giraffes, whose number is rapidly reducing, and to take some time to learn a bit more about these gentle giants. Considering the most characteristic feature of giraffes—their long necks—the GCF chose June 21 as World Giraffe Day as it is the summer solstice,1 the longest day of the year.
      Using some of Samsung Electronics’ most innovative devices, Samsung Global Newsroom followed the everyday lives of the twelve giraffes that live in Everland, from the story of the world record-breaking head of the giraffe family to the surprisingly belligerent nature of giraffes, and finally their charming yet subtle characteristics. Read on and take a look at the videos below to learn more about these gentle yet surprising creatures, and see if you can work out how the Galaxy S21 Ultra and The Sero TV made their way into the footage as you do.
      The Most Famous Giraffe in South Korea
      Giraffe matriarch Jang-Soon is living the life of a superstar who cannot escape the spotlight. Since making it into the Guinness Book of World Records for a special reason and becoming the most prominent giraffe in Everland, Jang-Soon’s conjugal harmony, silver wedding and other events have been reported on the news. The next giraffe to likely continue Jang-Soon’s legacy in the giraffe family has also come to the forefront. Who is this next contender for the leader of the superstar Everland giraffe family? Let’s find out by following a day in the life of Jang-Soon and her family.
      Slow Yet Stealthy: the Hidden Abilities of Giraffes
      “If you encounter a giraffe in the wild, don’t look back and run for your lives!” noted Jun-Yeong Park, Everland zookeeper who has been working with Lost Valley’s giraffe family for over 10 years. In fact, the giraffe is one of the top 10 strongest fighters among African land animals. ‘Cheong-Ryong’, the heaviest and strongest member of the giraffe family of twelve, in fact weighs 1.5 tons. If a giraffe harnesses its heavy body and starts kicking with full strength to defend itself, it is enough to break the skull or spine of a lion into pieces.
      What’s more, their big eyes, each of which is the size of a tennis ball, grants them excellent eyesight and a visibility range of 4 to 7km, meaning that giraffes are very good at escaping from their enemies. Let’s learn more about some of the surprising physical characteristics of giraffes that are disguised behind their beatific eyes and relaxed gait.
      The Longer the Neck, the Higher the Blood Pressure
      One of a giraffe’s most characteristic features is its long neck, which is hard to see in one go even if you tilt your head as far as you can. Male giraffes engage in fights using their necks, known as ‘necking’, in order to compete for females, meaning that it is more advantageous to have a longer neck as it increases a fighter’s overall centrifugal force.
      That said, as giraffes have to pump blood all the way to the top of their heads which sit 3m above their hearts, giraffes inevitably have high blood pressure, with their normal blood pressure being 270/180 mmHg. The blood pressure of the giraffe is two times that of the human, which is 120/80 mmHg, but nevertheless, giraffes manage to eat, drink, sleep and play with ease. So what is their secret?
      Top Tips for Filming Giraffes
      1) Harness Single Take for Those Funny Moments Featuring a Precocious Giraffe
      When paying a visit to the zoo, it is difficult to predict when and where a giraffe might turn its head directly toward you for a picture, and you might end up with dozens of shaky or blurry photos taken in a failed attempt to capture that fleeting moment. This is when Single Take on the Galaxy S21 comes in handy. By filming up to fifteen seconds, you can then enjoy various media, including photos, videos, GIFs and hyperlapses, with just one shot. Single Take’s AI will also recommend you the best cuts, making it easy for you to capture and share the perfect giraffe moment.
      2) Record 8k Videos on the Galaxy S21 for Those Subtle Yet Detailed Giraffe Features
      Just as every person has a different appearance, every giraffe has a different pattern on its body. With the Galaxy S21 Ultra, you can clearly observe even the finest details, such as the unique patterns on a giraffe, as the device comes with a 108-megapixel camera. The resolution of videos can also be adjusted to up to 8K, which enables you to see even the most delicate textures of a giraffe’s fur. Another good way of observing a giraffe on the Galaxy S21 Ultra is using its Super Slow Mo mode when you witness a special sight, such as a giraffe lowering its head for drinking water or curling up its long neck to sleep.
      3) Viewing a Giraffe from Head to Toe in One Go? Try The Sero
      The giraffe is the tallest animal in the animal kingdom, boasting an average height of around 4.8 to 5.5m including its horns; even new-born calves can be as tall as 180cm. With its portrait mode that allows the user to rotate the landscape display to a vertical orientation, The Sero allows you to enjoy all your favorite content in portrait mode – just like watching it on your phone, but with the benefits of the big-screen experience. With The Sero, you can enjoy your vertically oriented giraffe videos and pictures in an entirely new way – just as giraffes were meant to be seen.
      Giraffes that group with others live longer than less sociable individuals, according to the team of researchers led by Professor Barbara König at University of Zürich. World Giraffe Day was designated to promote collaborative efforts to the end of preventing the extinction of giraffes. After enjoying this dynamic tale of Everland’s giraffe family captured in the Galaxy S21 Ultra and The Sero, let’s be sure to pay more attention to protecting these gentle giants.
      1 One of the twenty-four solar terms, the summer solstice has the longest day and the shortest night of the year.

      An Introduction to Cookies
      Internet users are becoming cognisant of the ways we’re being followed and tracked online, the ways our behaviour is being analysed and data sold on to line the pockets of a the ad industry. Over the last few years, the news has been filled with debate about who truly owns our data, who can use it and how can they use it. While the law is typically quite behind on tech matters, there have been a few laws that have arisen that aim to protect users (e.g GDPR, LGPD, CCPA, etc) however, some are really complicated to understand, and others only really deal with internet users in the context of capitalism (as consumers or advertiser/seller). Ultimately though, these laws are hindered by national boarders, GDPR is only relevant for users in the European Union, CCPA only applicable to Californian users, etc.
      Tech workers aren’t ignorant to these issues, tracking has been happening for decades and as it becomes more egregious, there is pressure for tech workers to do something. In October 2020, the Technical Architecture Group at W3C (the main international standards organisation for the web) published the Ethical Web Principles. Standards play a big role in dictating how the web and associated web technologies are used and implemented and the list acts as a bare minimum requirement for web standards to meet, the list includes:
      This is the most pertinent to online tracking technology (although so many more points in the list are applicable) and will be crucial for any new standards to meet.
      In this series I want to delve into some of the standards which are being discussed for proposals in the W3C Privacy Community Group and demystify a lot of what’s being discussed. My hope is that we will all be more informed and encouraged to participate in the broader discussion.
      HTTP Cookies
      Before I go into detail about the new standards, it’s good to understand the current landscape and the foundation for a lot of the discussion, and cookies make up a considerable amount of that foundation.
      What is a Cookie?
      Over the last few years, we’ve seen an influx of cookie notices on websites and web apps. Some request permission to use cookies (usually if they’re using third part cookies) while others just inform the user that cookies are being used, and while we all know they’re not the edible kind, we may not all know exactly what they are.

      the inkey list and uber eats websites both with cookie notices
      HTTP Cookies are a type of data store on the browser, to put it succinctly. They allow websites to collect almost any data they want about the user so that they can tailor the user experience &/or analyse data about who is using their site. For example, here is some of the information Twitter is collecting about me in a cookie:
      "dnt=1; remember_checked_on=1; lang=en; eu_cn=1; night_mode=2; ads_prefs="******"; twid=********;" Twitter are storing my advertising preference, my twitter ID, what theme I’m using (night mode), my language, if I have Do Not Track enabled, and if I set remember me when I signed in. These are pretty harmless and are used to make my user experience as seamless as possible. It’d be pretty annoying to have to set dark mode every time I logged in or to sign in after I’ve asked to be remembered. You can clear cookies in your browser settings but even if you don’t all cookies (with the exception of Session Cookies — more on those later) have an expiration date, although they tend to be very far into the future.
      As seen above, cookies are a collection of key-value pairs. So setting a cookie means assigning a key and a value in a HTTP header:
      Set-Cookie: `darkmode=1; Expires="Wed,12 May,2021 00:00:00 UTC"` Session Cookies
      As I mentioned earlier, session cookies don’t have expiration dates, this is how they’re distinguished from other cookies and also what makes them temporary. They last for as long as the browser is active, once the user quits the browser, session cookies will be deleted.
      Third Party Cookies
      These are the cookies that are responsible for a lot of the tracking complaints we have especially those related to ads. Typically cookies are first party, which means the domain key on the cookie matches the domain in the browser’s address bar.
      Going back to the Twitter example, when I inspect the cookies, I see the following output:
      List of cookie domains for twitter.com
      As you can see, the only domain listed is https://twitter.com, and since this is the same as the domain in the address bar, this cookie is a first-party cookie.
      A third-party cookie would have a different domain to what is in the address bar, which is how ads can do cross-site tracking. Doing the same thing on a popular gossip site produces a very different result:
      List of cookie domains for mtonews.com
      In this case, the first domain mtonews.com is a first-party cookie since that’s the domain in the address bar. However, there are a list of other domains which all have cookies on mtonews.com, they’re all third-party cookies. These cookies work by building a (sort-of) profile of you based on the sites you visit, in this case we’ve visited mtonews.com which has cookies belonging to ads.pubmatic.com. If we went to anothergossipsite.com which also had a cookie from ads.pubmatic.com both of the cookies from mtonews & anothergossipsite would be sent to ads.pubmatic.com’s servers which would allow them to create a browsing history of the site’s we’ve been to with an ads.pubmatic.com cookie on them. This is typically how cookies are used to track user behaviour.
      Final Thoughts
      There are other types of cookie, such as the Zombie cookie 🧟‍♀ which gets regenerated after it’s been deleted or the Http-only cookie which can only be accessed via JavaScript, but for this series I wanted to give a brief explainer. The privacy web landscape is changing (for example third-party cookies are being retired) and in order to understand the direction we’re moving in, we should understand a little of where we’re coming from. This post is the first in a series of explainers that will cover what’s happening in the web standards world when it comes to web privacy. Feel free to follow what’s happening by checking out what’s on the table in the W3C Privacy Community Group on their GitHub or by having a look through the meeting minutes.
