A nifty little update to one of my favorite free task management smartphone apps makes it even better. Both the latest iPhone(s aapl) and Android(s goog) versions of Any.DO help bring focus to daily tasks with a fun feature called Any.DO Moment. Instead of manually waiting for — and possibly putting off — a time to review your tasks, Any.DO Moment helps plan your day every morning.

The new feature is configurable to run at a specific time on any day of the week. When that time hits, the application opens and quickly walks through all of your open tasks.

For each of these, you simply tap the appropriate planning option: Today, Later, Done, Delete. Choosing Today or Later provides additional options for specific times or future dates. Any.DO will then juggle the tasks around to the days of your choice, or remove any tasks you mark as complete. The…

Mark Zuckerberg likes to expound on the “Hacker Way” as the ethos of his social networking company, but Facebook(s fb) recently encountered some hackers of a more unfriendly nature. Facebook(s fb) revealed on Friday that it was the target of a malicious attack last month. In a blog post, Facebook stated that the threat was contained and that it found no evidence that Facebook user data was compromised.

Here’s an excerpt from the blog post (emphasis Facebook’s):

Last month, Facebook Security discovered that our systems had been targeted in a sophisticated attack. This attack occurred when a handful of employees visited a mobile developer website that was compromised. The compromised website hosted an exploit which then allowed malware to be installed on these employee laptops. The laptops were fully-patched and running up-to-date anti-virus software.

Do Google really need this, they don’t have many physical devices or will it sell android phones


Inspired by the wild success of Apple’s(s aapl) retail stores, Google(s goog) plans to open some brick-and-mortar stores of its own, according to a report by the 9to5Google web site.

google-glasses-featuredThe move makes sense now given Google’s big push into physical (i.e. non-software) products including Chromebooks, Google TV, and Google Glasses. These are the kinds of products people want to touch and feel before buying. Microsoft(s msft) launched its own retail stores (pictured above) a few years ago for many of the same reasons and is currently using those stores to drum up excitement around its new Surface devices and other products.

According to 9to5Google:

“The mission of the stores is to get new Google Nexus, Chrome, and especially upcoming products into the hands of prospective customers. Google feels right now that many potential customers need to get hands-on experience with its products before they are…
