A large number of Android smartphone users may soon find themselves in something of a security cul de sac. Google has confirmed that they will no longer be supplying updates or software patches for so called ‘legacy’ versions of their Android operating system. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Android KitKat 4.4 and Lollipop 5.0; the most recent iterations of Google’s flagship operating system. Unfortunately, with more than 60% of all Android users still running legacy versions of the software, that decision puts millions of people at a heightened security risk. An exploitable bug in older versions of Android (specifically anything prior to, and including, Jellybean 4.3) has the potential to leave millions of Android users vulnerable to hacking and other cybercrimes.

His verdict is:

Just a few hours until the World Cup 2014 in Bazil kicks off. There are several apps in the Marketplace for your Windows Phone to be up to date. One of which is Onefootball. However, if you are running Windows Phone 8.1 and activated Cortana, there is also a implemantation straight in Cortana. Right in Coartana’s notebook you can go to >interests / add / sports< and search for your favorite team(s). Once you’ve added your favorite team you will get score and schedule updates in Cortana and if you like you can get notifications about score updates.
