Foxconn wants to return to India established the first iPhone manufacturing

  Reuters reported that Government officials said Foxconn could soon in India iPhone. It may reduce iPhones in India the third largest smartphone market prices. At present, Apple lags behind Samsung and other local companies, such as Micromax.

  Maharashtra State (Maharashtra) industry Minister sabahashi·de tournament (Subhash Desai), told Reuters, Foxconn representative is looking for suitable sites. The world's largest electronics contract manufacturer Foxconn plans by 2020 in India 10 to 12 facilities, including manufacturing facilities and data centers. Dry goods share entrepreneurs scars how to overcome

  Because of commercial sensitivity, Foxconn declined to comment on its plans. Apple's mission in India also did not give any details. Sabahashi·de says, Foxconn has not made formal commitments, but said it plans to use India factory manufacturing iPhone, iPad and iPod, as well as supplying India and global markets.

  Counterpoint Research Market Monitor, a research firm data show that Apple in India's market share 10%, behind Samsung and after local competitors such as Micromax. Apple 16 GB iPhone 6 in India priced at RS 44000 (about us $ 687.82), Samsung 32 GB Galaxy S6 cost about 40000 crore rupees (about us $ 625.29). The Fuji kangruochenggong in India and build factories, could lead to India the Smartphone market prices, helped the company by decreasing costs and increasing competitiveness.

  In the wake of its customers sell Nokia mobile phones businesses, Foxconn last year shut down its India factory. For India, Foxconn's return is good news. According to Prime Minister Mr MODI's "India making" plan, India is currently developing manufacturing industries.

  India still lags behind China in technology. The lack of good infrastructure and vendor, limiting its ability to develop technology products. It also forces India more than more than 100 cell phone companies from mainland China and Taiwan area Gets the product.

  Foxconn is the Taiwan Hon Hai Group's brand name. In addition to Apple, Foxconn, Acer and Sony for millet and other OEM products.

  India's mobile phone subscribers ranked second in the world after China. Cisco expected 2019 India Smartphone ownership will reach 650 million units, and tablet computers will grow 9% of 18.7 million units.

  Foxconn will return to India recycled OEM Empire?

  Foxconn reportedly plans to India to build three production plants and parts used to assemble for Apple iPhone.

  It is Patently Apple, Foxconn considering build production facilities in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh to build a small research and development and new product development facilities.

  Foxconn has worked in India next to Chennai-Bangalore Highway to establish three new factory, designed for Nokia mobile phones and parts. Nokia after the bankruptcy, the company has also shut down three factories. But this time, Smartphone sales boom prompted Foxconn to return to India, local production of iPhone mobile phones. Foxconn, Apple's largest contract manufacturer.

  Sources said Foxconn will follow the India Government's "India making" policy announced its expansion plans. In India to build an assembly plant for Apple in India paving the way for opening flagship stores. 2014 fourth quarter, Apple for the number one mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics caused great pressure of competition.

  Last year's third quarter, India market, Smartphone shipments rose 27%, other emerging smartphone market ahead of the Asia-Pacific region. The international data Corporation (IDC) expects weak first quarter of 2015, partly in 2014, shipments in the fourth quarter shrank.

  "In the current situation, demand appears a trend, consumers demand products with high specs and low price. The next four to six quarters likely to maintain this trend, which, it is consumers will again favor charging premium quality mobile phone manufacturers, "IDC India's senior market analyst Karan Thakkar said.

Readily hacked around each of the devices is a kind of experience

  Yang Qing had 360 for 6 years "security".

  In 360, Antony Yang research directions to be safe. His Unicorn development team responsible for the protection of the 360 company-wide network security products "day tour". This product now from 360 for personal use into a 2C enterprise wireless hotspot security management platform.

  Antony Yang seldom attended "General Assembly" these occasions, but the way he talk sensibly about security but people didn't feel any hackers often "dull". In fact, he is on this year's 315 evening network security engineer.

   Wearing VR glasses controlled UAV is a kind of

  Unicorn Team is primarily responsible for radio and hardware-related security research, so they have a lot of exposure to hackers and hacker. Why are hackers attacking smart device? in Antony Yang's view, hacked smart devices can bring more fulfillment. "Website, but the website crashed. But attacking cars, personal safety may be subject to some loss. 」

  In the eyes of Antony Yang, perhaps this is a devastated world, because it is full of loopholes.

  Hardware vulnerabilities: of all things Internet war

  All things Internet times, each link may be loopholes, but each vulnerability can affect the entire ecosystem.

  Internet architecture is still more traditional, ends, clouds are the hardware itself. Our mobile tablet is a Terminal, this is the most common type of equipment. Cloud is the traditional interface of server resources. Hardware now mainly refers to the intelligent hardware. Speaking of risk, there are three aspects of risk, risk, server side risks and risks of the hardware itself.

  Antony Yang and his team are doing an experiment, they forged a smart home devices, cloud platform to deliver real environmental data, ultimately renders wrong data on the mobile terminal. Data should be provided by the sensors, but this aspect of the application of the vulnerabilities of cloud services, and eventually gets completely wrong as a result of environmental monitoring data. This is an example of a typical hardware application vulnerabilities is applied. "Sometimes you get a device that can handle all the company's products. 」

  Of course, for the Center attack should not be ignored. Antony Yang smart outlets, for example, use the UDP transport is taboo on security applications. When this device uses AES encryption, will lead the attack succeeds a device equivalent to all equipment for a successful attack.

  Hardware the physical layer vulnerabilities, Antony Yang referred to an example. As by bus, interface attack car ECU module. Hardware reverse analysis of the hacker used methods there are many, such as dismantling of contact, circuit, find the serial port, such as JTAG. Antony Yang also refers to the TTL of the router interface TTL interfaces and JTAG interface, electrical boxes, and so on.

  Many hardware physical vulnerability, we can what protection? Yang Shu feels the need to focus on 4 aspects: first of all is the location interface hidden as much as possible, and the second is to use a special plug-in and unconventional interface, and the third is to use special linear order and, finally, can design separate debug interfaces, use signal or encryption chips.

  Wireless communications: a ubiquitous

  Attacks on wireless communication, geek Park described previously in the hacker world, focus, passion, talent and ability is the hard currency of the article already has a very detailed description.

  Antony Yang on the spot focus gives the example car wireless RF signal to attack. Safety conferences they do regular on-site examination of how to break a car door. Now, when many of the cars designed for cost reasons, will only consider whether the RF signal is an effective device, and does not detect and analyze whether the owner around the car, this gives Antony Yang some "opportunities".

  When in auto modulations, Yang Qing found whether Audi or the public, Chery is Volvo, debugging in a similar way. Among them, some more considerations than other manufacturers BMW and Volvo.

  Antony Yang to run his own car and also has a special plug-type tire pressure sensor. Through two days of analysis, data restore, for some decoding. Finally, access to the specific data structures, understanding the data encryption methods. Specific encryption method is put in front of the digits are added together and then divided by two, and finally arrive at a result. This level of encryption for security researchers is very low. Antony Yang and his partner were experimentally sends entirely the wrong data to the tire pressure sensor, realizes the effect of random control automobile tyre pressure, tire pressure can be easily transferred back to normal.

  Drone aircraft flying for the now very popular, Yang Qing's team also did not want to miss. Within the six-ring, drones are grounded, GPS chip detects no specific location, if in the no fly zone will lock the machine cannot take off. They cheat through GPS signals the end to drone on the rooftop of 360 companies flew up. In the eyes of Yang Qing, spoofing GPS modules just for fun, there is no special difficulty and fun. The really interesting things for this vulnerability can achieve new possibilities. "No fly zone for drone is a double-edged sword, unmanned aerial vehicle detected everywhere in the no fly zone, unmanned aerial vehicles will drop, the drop operation on the part of the drone is unconditionally enforceable. We give it a false position signal of Tiananmen Square, fell as soon as it detects is a restricted area. Under such circumstances, we can imagine some hijacked the drone. 」

  3G, 4G by the network will use communication technology. Under current 2G, Yang Qing and his team can be hijacked. Antony Yang recommended that car makers future force binding 3G or 4G of the telematics network, because hackers can easily use their own equipment to build a 2G network. Then hackers will make your device is connected to its network, allow you to flow through its base stations, traffic hijacking.

Triumph in the skies and experience a bright fly

  In General, pilots are to develop: theory and simulation study on, after the experienced trainer, trainees in order to open a real aircraft. And if a fighter pilot, it takes a long time, surely money is essential. Hard pioneering Zhu Chen Xu exploring mobile VR

  Lei feng's network journalists today to introduce, is a simulation of the F-35 aircraft, users put on the magic of virtual reality glasses, sat in the cockpit, you can experience a bright fly. Directly on the video.

  This looks kinda SIAO device could really be applied to Luke air force base. Look from the video, the entire device is quite large, with most consumer-level VR device thus far.

  Entertaining but it is also very strong, stationed in a playground in the future eventually.
