A pastebin is a type of web application which allows its users to upload snippets of text, usually samples of source code, for public viewing.
It is very popular in IRC channels where pasting large amounts of text is considered bad etiquette. A vast number of pastebins exist on the Internet, suiting a number of different needs and providing features tailored towards the crowd they focus on most.
Although there are literally thousands of pastebins available, most have a common set of features. They may appear different or target a different user base, but at the core, they take an upload or text paste and provide a sharable HTTP URL which contains the body of text.

While I also love iOS, Android has, I think, more potential for innovation having a richer, more complex ecosystem of developers and publishers without being constrained by the heavy, and sometimes inexplicably random, hand of a single uber-vendor.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve tried the original T-Mobile HTC Droid, the Verizon HTC Incredible, the T-Mobile HTC MyTouch, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G (I’m sending you to the spec page as the home page is the usual splash page that takes forever to load and has loud, annoying music) and the Verizon Motorola Droid X and Droid 2. (A couple of phones I haven’t got my hands on yet are the HTC HD2 and the HTC Thunderbolt … PR people please take note.)
Through my testing of these cell phones I wound up using all the versions of Android and every user interface that every vendor throws on top of those. And that may be one of the downsides to the Android market: The variability of the UIs – some are slick and polished while others have clumsy, “rough edges”.
The definitive Android smartphone guide
My favorite Android phone so far is the HTC Incredible, maybe because it has my favorite Android UI. One reason why: the placement of the off-screen buttons. On the Incredible, they make sense: Reading from left to right there’s the home button, the menu button, optical trackball, back button, and, finally, the search button. On the Samsung Galaxy S 4G the home and menu button are reversed which seems wrong to me, though my enthusiasm for the Incredible may color that judgment.
That said, the Galaxy S 4G has some great attributes; it is fractionally thinner than the Incredible and the slight increase in its width is more or less unnoticeable. What really shines (literally) is the Galaxy S 4G’s 4-inch, 800 x 480 pixel, AMOLED display, which is fantastic! The Incredible’s 3.7-inch, 480 X 800 pixel OLED display isn’t quite as good, though it is still excellent.
There are a couple of problems with the Galaxy S 4G: when you press the wake-up button on the right side, you have to swipe the screen to unlock the UI. The problem is that the swipe has to cross the whole screen which is tricky with one hand and, when there’s an alert, unlike the Incredible, there’s no LED telltale lit up so you’ll spot that an alert is waiting should you miss the audible warning.
The Galaxy S 4G has the Swype text entry system which I like a lot. With Swype you just drag your finger from letter to letter and the system figures out what you’re trying to type. The auto-correct accuracy is excellent even when your fingers are really too big to hit the tiny, onscreen keyboard with anything that approaches accuracy.
Anyway, this week’s foray into the wonderful world of wireless telephony was started when reader Tim Oakes (Hartford, Conn.) wrote in suggesting I cover Android Apps for IT. Tim has been using the Motorola Xoom for the last three weeks and just got a Verizon HTC Thunderbolt. This is one spoiled reader (PR people, again, note that I haven’t had my sweaty hand on either of these devices yet).
Tim already has his own short list of IT apps which includes two free network tools called Overlook Fing and Overlook Whiz.
Overlook Fing is a neat and straightforward tool for running network IP address and service port scans. It’s fast, provides a lot of information, and you can email the scan results directly from the app. One of the other great things about Overlook Fing is it is a cross-platform product with sibling versions (also free) for Windows, OS X and Linux. Overlook Fing gets a rating of 5 out of 5.
Overlook Whiz is an Android widget for testing servers. After installation you simply press and hold on any open spot on the home screen and the “Add to Home screen” menu appears. Click on widgets then scroll down and click on Overlook Whiz. A configuration screen is displayed where you enter your target machine and service and select the refresh rate and other test attributes. The widget can sit on any of your home screens (I have a screen dedicated to monitoring the various services I rely on). Another hit! Overlook Whiz also gets a rating of 5 out of 5.
Another useful free tool I love is WiFi Analyzer. This app grabs the Android phone’s Wi-Fi service and looks for access points and displays their details including signal strength, channels in use, AP SSIDs, encryption systems used, and Mac addresses.
Five views are available including Channel Graph (plots channels in use against signal strength), Time Graph (channel signal strength against time), Channel Rating (a simple bar graph of channel use), AP List, and a Signal Meter that shows current signal strength as a conventional needle and dial display. I’d like to see the ability to capture snapshots and email data but for free, there’s really nothing to complain about. WiFi Analyzer also gets a rating of 5 out of 5!
Next week we’ll cover a few more of the best networking tools for Android devices. If you have any recommendations, let me know.
Charge Anywhere’s existing mobile payments application has already allowed owners of iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices to process credit card payments with their phones and a dedicated reader to swipe the cards.
But the latest version to the software, announced at yesterday’s CTIA trade show, turns the Nexus S phone into a full mobile payment terminal. This means that owners can process MasterCard PayPass and Visa Blink payments remotely using the phone’s built-in NFC technology.
Though the software update is ready, it hasn’t been officially deployed yet. Dmitriy Lerman, Charge Anywhere’s director of marketing, told CNET that his company currently can make the software available to large customers and will soon release it for all customers.
The cost of Charge Anywhere’s overall service to customers is $9.99 a month, which includes the back-end payment processing, tech support, and a Web-based management system.
Near-field communications allows devices, such as mobile phones, to swap information when they’re near each other. The technology is being touted as a wallet-free way for consumers to pay for items by using their smartphones to send payments directly from their bank accounts to a store terminal.
“The Charge Anywhere payment platform has always stayed ahead of the payment technology curve and by adding NFC payments ensures that our partnering financial institutions, mobile network operators, and distributors always have the most competitive advantage in delivering secure payment technology,” Charge Anywhere CEO Paul Sabella said in a statement.
The Nexus S is currently being offered by T-Mobile. But a new 4G version of the phone will be heading to Sprint this spring. Samsung’s new Galaxy S II smartphone also includes an option for NFC. Charge Anywhere said it will expand its updated software to other phones beyond the Nexus S as they gain the necessary NFC technology.
Rumors have been swirling recently over whether the iPhone 5 will include NFC. But some experts believe Apple faces hurdles before it can do so. Those hurdles rest not so much with the technology itself but more with the overall infrastructure and how Apple would partner with retailers and other players.
Research In Motion has also been eyeing NFC but has been running into conflicts with mobile carriers over who will control the mobile payment information, according to a recent Wall Street Journal story.
Several mobile carriers and manufacturers have been jumping onto the NFC bandwagon with plans for their own mobile payment networks.
AT&T Mobility, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile USA have started a mobile payment network called Isis with an eye toward officially launching it by early next year. T-Mobile has been working with companies in the U.K. to unveil an NFC system there this summer. T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom is ramping up a system destined for Europe and eventually the U.S. this year.
LG is developing a mobile payments system for Europe, slated to launch next year. And recent reports say that Google plans to test an NFC system in New York and San Francisco within the next few months.
Comodo Group Inc., a Jersey City, N.J., company that issues digital certificates to assure Internet users of websites’ authenticity, said Wednesday it had issued nine such certificates to what turned out to be fraudulent websites set up in Iran.
The March 15 attack involved certificates for fake versions of Google Inc.’s Gmail site, Yahoo Inc.’s login page and websites run by Microsoft Corp., Firefox browser maker Mozilla Corp. and Internet telephone company Skype.
In theory, an Iranian attempting to log into his Yahoo account, for example, could have been misdirected to a fake site. That would allow the perpetrators to obtain a host of online information including contents of email, passwords and usernames, while monitoring activity on the dummy sites.
Since the targeted sites offer communication services, not financial transactions, Comodo said it seemed clear the hackers sought information, not money.
It wasn’t clear whether anyone fell for the ruse. Comodo said it didn’t know how many of the nine certificates were received by the attacker.
Iran’s mission to the U.N. didn’t reply to an emailed request for comment after business hours. Iran has said it is trying to combat Western culture and influence entering Iran via the Internet, a virtual clash it has called the “soft war.”
The attack comes amid popular uprisings across the Middle East, where the Internet has played a critical role—not just in activists’ efforts to stage protests, but also in state censorship and repression.
If Iran was involved, it suggests the government has stepped up electronic-monitoring efforts of its citizens, Internet security experts said. Iranian authorities got an early look at the power of social media during the mass protests following allegations of rigged elections in June 2009. It has since formed a “cyber army” to gain the upper hand over the Internet in Iran, which has more than 20 million users.
“This is a nightmare scenario,” said Mikko Hypponen, head of research at F-Secure, a Helsinki, Finland-based Internet security firm. “You have to trust the companies selling these certificates and if we can’t, then all bets are off.”
Comodo said it traced the attack to an Internet service provider in Iran and concluded in an online post that the act was likely “state-funded” because the attacker would have needed access to critical Web infrastructure in the country.
While the company acknowledged the attacker could have been laying a false trail, it said the likely aim was to get online information about Iranian citizens.
“It does not escape notice that the domains targeted would be of greatest use to a government attempting surveillance of Internet use by dissident groups,” the company said in the post.
Comodo said the attacker gained entry to its system by obtaining the password and username of a European affiliate. Once inside, it issued the certificates for the phony sites. Comodo said it detected the breach within hours of the attack and revoked the certificates immediately.
A Microsoft spokeswoman said the company issued an upgraded security patch to help protect against fraudulent digital certificates. Mozilla declined to comment. Skype said it was monitoring the situation but didn’t expect any impact. Google said it took steps to protect its users, but didn’t specify them. Yahoo also said it was monitoring the situation.
“This is not a random hacker tinkering around,” said Mr. Hypponen of the Finnish security firm. “You have to plan it beforehand and know what you’re doing.”
Austin Heap, a San Franciso-based Internet activist who has developed anti-censoring tools for use in Iran, said the development seems to suggest the Iranian government is becoming more professional and organized in online repression.
“It shows they have a plan,” he said. “They are getting to the point where China is, where they can exert total control.”
The company, which recently launched its latest browser Internet Explorer 9, has partnered with websites like the group buying website SnapDeal, e-commerce site Flipkart, online booking site BookMyShow , Photovault , ESPNCricinfo , Kotak Bank , PhotoVault, Naukri , Rediff SongBuzz, Reliance Global Call, Sameer Belvalkar’s FrozenFrames.com, Sify, and Zapak Games.
Globally, Microsoft has partnered with over 250 top websites and global brands that have created new experiences to show off the capabilities of Internet Explorer 9. Microsoft India unveiled the new browser at TechEd India 2011, an annual IT conference organised by Microsoft India.
The launch of Internet Explorer 9 came at a time when the race to capture browser markets share is heating up. The browser market is becoming increasingly competitive with an increasing number of devices going online every day. According to one report, when all versions of browsers are taken together, Internet Explorer leads the pack with 45% market share.
