The Good Decent image quality; portable size; Kobo service is simple to use. The Bad Very slow performance; unresponsive screen. The Bottom Line The Kobo Vox may be cheap, but its poor power makes it awkward and frustrating to use. While we like Kobo's ebook service, we don't like the Vox. We recommend using the Kobo app with a better tablet. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read.

CNET también está disponible en español, Don't show this again, Could Google Wallet soon go the way of other interesting Google pet-projects like Google Labs, Google Health and Google PowerMeter? Those programs were all canceled after Google's CEO Larry Page said the company needed to focus on its core business and "put more wood behind fewer arrows.", "Google often jumps head-first into new iphone 7 screen protector zagg projects, paddles around, and then decides whether it's worth staying in," said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst covering mobile for Gartner, "I don't think Google would pull the plug on Google Wallet entirely, but they may be slowing down and regrouping."..
Will security be Google Wallet's downfall?Indeed, this makes sense given that recently discovered security flaws may have spooked some consumers. On Friday, Google temporarily disabled the ability to set up new prepaid cards in its Google Wallet app after it was discovered that if someone lost his Google Wallet-enabled phone and the screen of the device wasn't locked that someone finding the phone could reset the PIN and gain access to whatever money was left on the Google Prepaid card. The way that Google Wallet works is that it stores a user's credit card information, as well as information for a prepaid Google payment card, in a digital app on the phone. Subscribers can use any of the credit cards stored in Google Wallet or the prepaid card when checking out at a store by tapping their phones to a payment terminal.
Even users who cleared their Google Wallet app from the device still left behind the prepaid iphone 7 screen protector zagg balance on that particular phone because it was stored to the secure element on the device, the company said, Osama Bedier, vice president, Google Wallet and Payments, said in a blog post Friday night that part of the app had been disabled, but that it would be restored once a permanent fix to the security flaw has been found, "To address an issue that could have allowed unauthorized use of an existing prepaid card balance if someone recovered a lost phone without a screen lock, tonight we temporarily disabled provisioning of prepaid cards," he said, "We took this step as a precaution until we issue a permanent fix soon."..
Gartenberg said that it was a good idea for Google to disable this functionality and make sure the security flaw is eliminated before allowing more people to sign up for the app, even though the flaw itself is not a major risk. "The perception of security is a big deal when you're trying to get people to sign up for a new service like this," Gartenberg said. "And Google can afford to take time to regroup and make sure the security is nailed down.". Google maintains that security on the Google Wallet is solid. And it claims that using the app can be even more secure than using a regular credit card.
