Finnish company HMD Global borrowed the Nokia brand to make smartphones and they’re doing a pretty good job. However, that doesn’t stop HMD from trying to do even better.
It appears that HMD transferred another well-known brand that will probably help it sell even more devices. The “Asha” brand belonged to Nokia before Microsoft acquired the company’s mobile division, but when the Redmond finally bought Nokia’s mobile business, it also got the Asha brand.
Since there’s no official announcement, it’s yet unclear how HMD Global was able to trademark the Asha brand, but the Finnish company must have negotiated the deal with Microsoft.
The fourth beta build of #Android Oreo for the #Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ is now rolling out. Users who have signed up for the program can check if the update is available by going to Settings > Software Updates > Download Updates Manually.
The update should bump the @software version of the two 2017 flagships to ZQL8. With a size of 850MB, this patch is rather hefty, so make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the download.
As powerful men drop like flies due to their inability to resist abusing their authority, it’s clear that the problem is widespread. Similarly, it’s likely that we’ll find the problem of alleged industrial espionage is not limited to Uber.

For some time, I’ve suspected that the harassment issues were just one aspect of a bigger problem. The allegations that Uber aggressively moved to steal intellectual property from Google and colluded to cover up evidence of the theft may be indicative of another area in which executives have been abusing their authority.
Rather than wait for the next scandal to surface, I thought it would be interesting (since I’m an ex-internal auditor who has been through a cycle like this before) to look at the other areas where we likely will find that executives and others who wield authority have been doing scandalous things. I’ll close with my product of the week: one of the few security offerings that could prevent against a significant amount of this immoral behavior, Varonis.
