The Notes app on iOS can now sync to Google automatically, but this can be disabled in settings.
All authenticators are doing the same thing. It's a time-based, one-time use pass code. There's no data going back and forth between the authenticator app and Google, they are just both using the same algorithm to generate the code based on the time of day. Since no one knows that algorithm, it's not possible to figure out that code. They use a "one-way hashing" technique to do this. Just because the user has the 6-digit result on the authenticator does not mean anyone could go backwards to figure out what the key is.
Google announcing still more new Android phones, Amazon launching the Kindle 2, Apple rumored to be announcing the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini, it's going to be a busy ten days in the tech world. Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a thrill ride.
Leo says that Google is at fault here, not the carrier. Google Wallet right now doesn't support the Galaxy S III, but that will change quickly. Meanwhile, there is something on XDA Developers that may work around that limitation.
Samsung will announce the Galaxy Note II with a larger screen on the 29th. September 5 will be the next Nokia Windows Phone 8 handset. Motorola and Google will be announcing something the same day, while Amazon will announce the new Kindle Fire tablet on September 6th.
Then there's that Apple iPhone announcement on September 12th, and some think the iPad mini will be announced a few weeks later. Leo is starting to think that Apple is leaking news to manage the cycle, but nobody really knows. What we do know is that September will be a crazy month for the technology industry.
Mark has a ton of mp3s and he wants to put accurate ID3 tags on them. He's used iTunes Match for his songs which adds the ID3 tags, but they aren't accurate. Leo says that Media Monkey is better than iTunes Match and it's far more accurate. It'll give album art in addition to ID3 tags. The tag editor is easy to use and he can do it by batch as well.
