  • Ashley Speagle By

In this week's top mobile news: Dogspectus infects Android devices, Microsoft open sources Xamarin, Samsung revs up IoT and more.

Security alert!

Don’t let this new ransomware hold up your Android end users. Here’s what you need to know about Dogspectus from our security expert John Britton.

Microsoft got you a 1-year anniversary present (and it’s better than paper).

If you haven’t already upgraded to Windows 10, you’re probably weighing the pros and cons (and not just because it could ruin your weather forecast).

According to beta testers, the first Windows 10 Anniversary Update provides tons of minor fixes that fine-tune the already great operating system. Check out Mashable’s preview for more details.

And Microsoft makes good on a promise.

This week at the Xamarin Evolve conference, Microsoft fulfilled their promise to developers. Xamarin software development kits (SDKs), a cross-platform mobile development tool recently acquired by Microsoft, has finally been open sourced. Rejoice, and read more at ZDNet.

Samsung just made a lot of noise in the IoT space.

Connected car technology, chips that bring smart “things” to life, an Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud and security system—Samsung did a lot of wowing this week at their Developer Conference. Read CNET’s roundup of everything Samsung announced.

Syncing is so 2000—and who cares?

Dropbox just announced their next big move at their Open event in London: Project Infinite. It’s a simple, but great idea: you can view every file from any device without having to sync and download them all. Read more at The Next Web.

Move, or get out of the way.

In other words, if you want to keep your job, you better be agile as a CIO nowadays. Our own Bask Iyer, VMware SVP and CIO, told Forbes how he handles the increasing rate of change in IT, the growing enterprise app ecosystem, shadow IT and the shifting CIO role. Read the Q&A here.

AirWatch is winning—the internet says so.

Thanks, CRN and Small Business Computing, for naming AirWatch one of the “10 Coolest Mobile Device Management Vendors” and best mobile device management (MDM) software platforms for small business. Oh, and Tech2 announced that AirWatch has sold over a million licenses in India (brushes shoulders off).
