  • New Android TV dongle passes through the FCC with Google Logo, Assistant enabled remote and Oreo on board


    If you’re a keen watcher of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), then a new device from Shenzhen SEI Robotics Co., Ltd. labelled a ‘4K ATV Stick’ will probably have piqued your interest, with the external photos showing off a HDMI dongle, with Google Logo running the latest version of Android TV and with a Google Assistant enabled voice remote.

    As you can see from the images the dongle is extremely reminiscent of the Chromecast dongles that have been massively popular for Google, gaining them a sizeable foothold in living rooms around the world. The dongle has a HDMI (2.0A) output, power (5V/2A) input and according to the user manual is powered by an Amilogic S905X processor with 2GB of RAM and has 8GB of eMMC storage on-board. The dongle’s power brick shows no sign of an ethernet connection like the Chromecast Ultra, but the dongle includes dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1 as well.

    There’s plenty of photos included in the FCC application:



    The user manual, which you can read through here, also shows the Android TV setup, including the Google Assistant enabled remote control which features a power button, what appears to be a hamburger menu, a D-Pad with a Back, Google Assistant button and Home button below, and either a volume or channel up/down control underneath.



    The setup process appears to be fairly straightforward using the voice enabled Android TV remote above, and an Android device. The screenshot of the Android TV home screen shows the Oreo updated version of Android TV that was launched at Google I/O last year.



    Since their previous reference device for Android TV, the Nexus Player, was confirmed to not be receiving any further updates last month, Google has really been in need of a device which developers can use. This dongle could be it.

    It’s been submitted by another party, Shenzhen SEI Robotics, who have a number of Android TV devices already in production, but that’s a pretty distinct Google logo front and centre on the device. With Google I/O only a few weeks away, this could be a developer focused device similar to the ADT-1 developer box seeded to developers after announcing the platform at Google I/O in June 2014 – but we hope it’s made available to consumers.

    • Google removes ‘Kodi’ from search autocomplete in anti-piracy effort
      trebor
      Google has banned the term “Kodi” from its autocomplete feature, meaning those who look for information on the set-top box will have to type out the full term in order to search, as reported by TorrentFreak. Google has been increasing its anti-piracy efforts in recent years, banning terms from autocomplete and making changes to its search algorithms in order to demote copyright-infringing material.

      While Kodi is legal software in a set-top box for streaming, it supports a myriad of

    • Google starts blocking its apps on uncertified Android devices
      trebor
      If you're fond of loading custom ROMs on your Android phone, life just became complicated. Google has quietly started blocking access to its apps on uncertified devices whose firmware was built after March 16th. If you're affected, you'll get a warning that a device is "not certified" and can't sign into a Google account. This won't prevent you from loading ROMs, but you'll have to register your device IDs on a white list every time you undergo a factory reset -- when there's a 100-ID...

      trebor
      AMD has finally issued a full response to CTS Labs’ report that Ryzen and EPYC processors contain a total of 13 security flaws. Here’s the short version of the chipmakers’ response:
      • Exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires admin access
      • The vulnerabilities have to do with firmware and chipsets, not the x86 architecture
      • Patches are coming in the form of BIOS updates and firmware patches only--no microcode updates are required--via OEMs and ODMs
      • All issues will be addressed within “weeks,”
