Breaking Android Broken Down

  • Android Central conducted an email interview with Adrian Ludwig, a lead engineer for Android security at Google. Read the full interview for more info.
  • Android Authority has reported that Miami cops are entering bad data into Waze, the user-generated traffic alert app. The app is sometimes used to report police locations, which allows users to avoid or control their speeds (or anything, really), and the police don’t like that.
  • Android Central has reported that smartphone maker Yezz will be at Mobile World Congress in Spain, March 2-5, 2015, to show off the first module prototypes. These are based on Project Ara, a module smartphone project led by Google. This is the first major debut of module smartphones.
