Samsung Buys Canadian Mobile Cloud Printing Company PrinterOn

September 3rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Samsung Electronics Co. 005930.SE -0.17% said it is buying Ontario-based mobile cloud printing company PrinterOn, as part of its push to enhance its presence in the enterprise business.

Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

The acquisition of PrinterOn will strengthen Samsung’s mobile software systems, particularly for corporate customers, the South Korean company said.

PrinterOn has been providing mobile cloud printing systems for three groups of clients—enterprise, education and public printing locations—for 14 years, the company’s website says.

Mobile cloud printing allows smartphone users to print material by connecting to printers through the web.

Samsung has long been battling to win more corporate and government clients for its mobile phones, an area of weakness the company has tried to overcome by marketing its internally-developed mobile security software called Knox, which has brought little success thus far.

The announcement comes about three weeks after Samsung said it is buying home-controller maker SmartThings for an undisclosed sum to help build an ecosystem of consumer electronics products that can communicate with each other through the Internet.


Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Android 4.4.2 Update Guide and Information

September 3rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

The S5 Active is a variant which mostly caters to consumers with an active lifestyle (people who go jogging or other fitness related activities), thus the variant name “Active.” The update finally rolled out on the S5 Active after the Galaxy S4 Mini.

The Android 4.4.2 Kitkat update will be the last one hitting the S5 Active while other Samsung Galaxy devices will still be getting the 4.4.4 Kitkat upgrade.

With that, S5 Active users can expect the following features on their phones:

Visual Voice Mail enhancements
Security updates and patches
Application installation enhancements
Accidental emergency dial fixed on the lock screen
Several lower layer modem crashes and sluggishness improvement enhancements
E-mail UX enhancements
Re-activation lock improvements

S5 Active users can download the update on their phones where it will automatically install itself or if the automated installation fails, users can install it manually.

Usually, users get a prompt from their phones about the update and whether or not they would want to download and install it. Users can then delay the download three times at four-hour intervals. Afterwards, postponing the update will be overridden by the system where it downloads the update and installs it.

Of course, there will be instances when the phone will not be receiving any updates of any kind. Users will then have to manually download the update and install it. To do this, users will have to navigate to the Menu, go to Settings, then to More, then to About Device, Software Update, and then select the option “Check for Update.”

The phone will then look for an update and then download it. Make sure the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network. The phone will then continue with the installation and will promptly reboot afterwards.


Compuware sold to private equity firm

September 3rd, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Application performance firm to become a privately-held company.

US software vendor Compuware has been acquired by private equity fund Thoma Bravo in a deal worth US$2.5 billion that aims to take the company private.

Pressure from New York hedge fund Elliot Management drove the deal, according to reports from Bloomberg.

Less than two years ago, Elliot Management offered to buy Compuware for US$2.3 billion or US$11 a share, but only managed to acquire just under ten percent of the company.

After the acquisition is completed, Compuware will become a privately-held company with all shares held by Thoma Bravo.

Compuware was funded in 1973 in Detroit, Michigan, as a professional technical services company. It moved onto software for mainframe computers in the 1970s and more recently into application performance management for online and mobile apps.

Founder Peter Karmanos made headlines last year when he retired from the company with an “enhanced retirement package” that included a consulting assignment valued at US$600,000 a year for six years.

Karmanos also received a suite in the Compuware building as part of his retirement package, and two company cars. His consulting job was later terminated, and Karmanos sued Compuware in retaliation.

The company has just under 5000 employees worldwide, and has offices in all Australian cities and New Zealand.
