    » Last month, a family from the country found out that they had inadvertently built up a huge bill by purchasing items in a smartphone game and thus owed a fortune to a telecommunications company. The story hit the news and caused a public outcry and from what I know, at least three similar incidents have since become public knowledge.

    Is your phone spying on you?

    » I've long been a fan of Firefox, but I somehow missed the announcement of its new OS coming out for mobile phones. Geeksphone, a Spanish start-up, sold out of the first devices with the new OS within a matter of hours and had to shut down its online store as demand unexpectedly exceeded supply. The new units were meant for developers only because the new Firefox OS is still in a very early stage of its evolution. Application development for the new OS is based on HTML5, JavaScript and Open Web standards. The official OS launch will be some time later this year and Google is working with ZTE in China on the project. The first commercial units will be manufactured in Brazil so this is a truly international effort and may be one to watch in the future.
