The importance of Identity

A lot has been said and more written about "identity theft". We all also know it is not as if some-one "stole" your identity. It is more about someone collecting enough information about you to be able to represent you for a specific purpose. I found this article about identity written by Robert Siciliano particularly stimulating.

The differences between verification and authentication was also very interesting as this has a direct implication in the deployment of mobile banking and refers to the two most complex problems that must be solved in deploying an effective mobile banking solution:

Authentication is about the first step in setting up a mobile banking account. During the registration process it is preferable to authenticate the account holder. This is usually done by comparing a photo-ID with the person (or sometimes with a realtime image of the person). Mobile banking applications not doing a proper authentication of the subscriber runs a number of risks (from regulation to fraudulent transactions). The best way to do this is by means of some biometric data (picture of the face)

At the time of each transaction, a mobile banking solution should verify the subscriber. This is usually done by a combination of a certificate and secret information. This certificate and secret information should have been connected to the subscriber's identity during authentication.

The degree of rigour utilised in designing mobile banking solutions will help defend against identity theft.

NumptyPhysics on a multi-touch table

(Not really tablet-related, but related to NumptyPhysics, which has been initially written for the tablets. Feel free to skip :)

The summer semester is in full swing, and we have been working on our HCI multi-touch seminar work for the last few weeks. We plan on extending Tim Edmonds' NumptyPhysics to work on multi-touch tables and adopt the UI accordingly to take advantage of multiple input cursors. We did a trial run on a real table last week:

The cude currently only emulates mouse events, but will allow real multi-touch input soon. We will release the code as soon as some bugs have been fixed and the code design got a bit more stable.

Tennix 2009 for Maemo

The updated version of Tennix, the open source tennis game is now available in Maemo Extras for Chinook, Diablo and Fremantle (anyone with Fremantle hardware care to test if it works correctly? Thanks!). The 1.0 release has been announced to the public in February already, but I have only now had time to create a proper package for Maemo. It plays fine with stylus or the D-Pad.

Here is a gameplay video if you can't wait to download it onto your tablet.

Jeu de course de voiture "Seat Ibiza Cupra Race"

Seat Ibiza Cupra Race pour iphone
Seat Ibiza Cupra Race est donc un jeu de course de voiture qui vous proposera 3 types de course. Un mode permis où vous devrez conduire le mieux possible sans sortie de route ni accrochage, un mode contre la montre où vous devrez réaliser le meilleur temps et enfin un mode course dans lequel vous concourerez contre des adversaires controlés par l’IE (intelligence artificielle).
Game play
Le jeu utilise toutes les fonctions de l’iphone. La fonction tactile pour accelérer et freiner ainsi que modifier la vue (deux vues externes et une interne), et la fonction accéléromètre pour diriger le véhicule. Si vous avez vu mon test sur VW polo challenge 3D vous connaissez mon aversion pour l’utilisation de l’accéléromètre pour diriger une voiture. Néanmoins je trouve qu’il est bien réglé pour ce jeu et je n’ai pas eu trop de mal à jouer avec cette fonction. Vous jouerez sur un circuit. L’IE des adversaires n’apportera pas grand chose au jeu car vos adversaires se contenteront de rester sur leur chemin sans vous menacer en cas de dépassement. La voiture quand à elle semble réagir de manière réaliste. En effet vous la verrez se pencher sur l’avant en cas de freinage trop brusque et elle réagira par un dérapage incontrolé si vous êtes en pleine courbe!

Aurora Feint 1.0.1.0 pour iphone

Aurora Feint 1.0.1.0 pour iphone
iPhone = console de jeu? Aurora Feint semble confirmer la volonté d'Apple de faire de son terminal tactile un petite machine à jouer aux ambitions sérieuses.
Aurora Feint réunit dans le même jeu les éléments classiques des RPG (Role Playing Game, ou jeu de rôle) mâtinés d'un concept de puzzle plus formel.Résultat, une combinaison étonnante et intelligente qui profite de graphismes de qualité et d'une jouabilité bien adapté à la console, euh... téléphone pardon.
La partie puzzle est classique, rappelant les Columns et autres jeux de briques. Vous devez éliminer les éléments similaires en les groupant par trois. Vous devrez d'abord créer votre personnage et le faire avancer dans sa quête, en résolvant ces "énigmes".
Aurora Feint utilise l'accéléromètre de l'iPhone. Il faut don agiter son appareil dans tous les sens (mais intelligemment) pour grouper les briques et les faire disparaître. Avec un peu de pratique, vous arriverez facilement à créer des combinaisons, gagner des points et faire ainsi évoluer votre personnage. De quoi gagner de l'expérience et des outils pour mieux résoudre les énigmes suivantes.


Rolando Lite 1.0 pour iphone

Rolando Lite 1.0 pour iphone
Après le fabuleux Topple, NGmoco récidive avec l'un des jeux les plus populaires de l'App Store, Rolando.
Derrière ce nom bizarre se cache un univers peuplé de personnages ronds comme des ballons, qu'il faudra à chaque niveau guider vers la sortie et sauver d'une mort certaine.Idée de départ simple pour un jeu de plate-forme / stratégie qui utilise avec brio l'interface tactile et l'accéléromètre de l'iPhone.
Vous commencez chaque niveau en essayant de rassembler vos troupes. Toucher un personnages pour le sélectionner, puis agiter votre iPhone dans tous les sens pour amener votre petite bille à un point de rencontre avec ses camarades. Un cliquer-glisser du doigt sélectionne plusieurs personnages, et un glisser avec deux doigts permet de découvrir le niveau du bout de l'index.
Enfantin dans sa jouabilité, la difficulté de Rolando croît à mesure que l'on avance à la rencontre de nouveaux personnages aux capacités nouvelles. Les graphismes sont excellents, façon dessin animé des années 70, dans le même ton que la musique et les effets sonores.

Fastlane Street Racing Lite 1.0 pour iphone
Amateur de jeux de course automobile? Fastlane vous fera (presque) retrouver les sensations de conduite des jeux de bornes d'arcade.
Au volant de votre bolide, vous devez négocier au mieux les virages en épingle de ces circuits urbains afin de remporter la course.
Fastlane offre des graphismes de très bonnes facture. L'impression de vitesse est bien restituée mais gâchée par des effets sonores un peu bâclés.
On apprécie surtout le style de pilotage qui profite à 100% de l'accéléromètre de l'appareil. L'iPhone se transforme en volant, l'écran tactile offrant alors de chaque côté de l'écran une "pédale" d'accélération et une de frein. Avec un peu d'entraînement, il devient possible de glisser dans les virages.
Dernier point sympathique, le mode "replay" qui permet de revoir la course et ses meilleures actions.

Snake XT pour iphone

Si vous faites partie de ces gens qui ont passé des heures entières sur les versions Nokia du Serpent, voici de quoi redonner de l'exercice à vos pouces. Snake XT est une "avancée majeure" dans l'histoire du serpent.
Graphiquement au point, on apprécie les textures et détails qui habillent chacun des niveaux proposés. Plus surprenant, l'évolution dans le gameplay donne au jeu une nouvelle jeunesse.
Snake XT free offre deux modes de jeu bien distincts.En mode Arcade, 28 niveaux vous défient à travers une difficulté croissante faite d'obstacles et autres pièges divers.
Le mode Challenge vous permet quant à lui de réaliser le serpent le plus long possible, comme dans la version originale du jeu.
Seul souci, le contrôle du reptile laisse encore à désirer. En obligeant le joueur à garder la main proche de l'écran, on perd en visibilité. Cela devient très frustrant quand le serpent commence à devenir très long...

Ici, tout est plus simple. Sélectionnez le contact, piochez le document dans la base de données de l'iPhone (photos, images, adresse) et faites glisser le doigt sur l'écran tactile. C'est tout.
Seul problème, et il est de taille: il faut que votre correspondant dispose de l'application et soit connecté... sous peine d'échec de l'envoi.
Fliq pour iPhone permet d'envoyer des documents, mais si vous souhaitez en recevoir et les visualiser (notes, tâches et documents, etc.), il faut passer par les autres logiciels de la gamme offerts par l'éditeur. Une application par fonctionnalité? Ca devient un peu compliqué...

Mobile banking patents

The number of patents that have been lodged to claim ownership of the concept of using a mobile phone to make a payment is staggering. Because this is important to me, I have tried to stay on top of any Intellectual Property claim that is made in this space, and I am amazed. Maybe because it is sheer magic to see a payment transaction being performed by means of a hand-held device that makes people think they own the concept.

It is unlikely that any of the overall claims regarding mobile payments will ever stand the test of proper patentability. The concept is too generic and obvious (?). Also some of the existing prior art (that has been tested in court) did not stand up to scrutiny. (the Vazvan patent). I am much more interested in the claims that is being made of inventions that are closely related to mobile payments. As the industry and the technology starts to mature, it is likely that some of these patents will become much more relevant.

Foot L1 Lite pour iphone

Foot L1 Lite pour iphone

Foot L1 Lite mérite bien son appellation de "Lite", puisque cette application pour iPhone ne sait faire qu'une chose: afficher le classement de la Ligue 1. Ni plus, ni moins.
Inutile de tapoter dans tous les coins pour obtenir des informations sur l'Olympique lyonnais, l'OM, le PSG ou les Girondins de Bordeaux. Foot L1 ne permet que de faire défiler le classement en faisant glisser le doigt sur l'écran.
Seules 8 premières équipes sont affichées par défaut dans le sens de la hauteur, avec leur nombre de points, de matches joués et leur différence de buts.
Une fonctionnalité tout de même: lorsque vous tournez l'écran dans le sens de la largeur, l'affichage s'adapte et laisse apparaître quelques données supplémentaires (mais moins d'équipes). Vous voyez ainsi le nombre de victoires, de nuls et de défaites, ainsi que le nombre de buts marqués et encaissés pour 5 clubs affichés.

Yahoo!

On profite cependant de fonctionnalités propres, comme l'envoi de photos prises avec son iPhone (avec possibilité de publication sur Flickr) et l'envoi de SMS gratuits vers les téléphones portables (non testé en France).
Enfin Yahoo! Messenger permet comme ses grands frères de profiter des superbes émoticônes Yahoo!, d'utiliser une barre de recherche spécifique pour retrouver un morceau de conversation ou un message envoyé, et de personnaliser son statut.
Au final, une messagerie très bien faite, agréable et ayant quelques fonctionnalités intéressantes, mais trop peu ouverte sur les autres réseaux pour réellement s'imposer.

Skype pour iPhone
L’intérêt de ce Skype pour iPhone, c’est bien sûr de pouvoir appeler gratuitement ses contacts grâce à une connexion Wi-Fi, mais pas via les réseaux de téléphonie 3G habituels. Les appels en vidéo et les SMS ne sont pas encore opérationnels.

L’interface de Skype iPhone reprend les canons de l’application de bureau, même si cette version mobile met l’accent sur le côté “Appel” plus que sur les options de chat et de messagerie.
Un domaine qui semble un peut avoir été oublié par Skype: l’interface est peu claire et la fenêtre de discussion à moitié mangée par le clavier virtuel…
Au bas de l’écran, 5 boutons permettent d’accéder rapidement aux contacts, conversations, pavé numérique d’appel, historique et profil personnel.Skype pour iPhone peut également être utilisé avec les iPod Touch équipés de la connectivité WiFi, moyennant l’usage d’un micro et d’un casque.

Jouer plus facilement par manette de jeu pour l'iPhone




Après les applications inutiles comme le I am Rich vendu 1000 $ sur l’Apple Store américain, ou encore des applications plus intéressantes tel que la reconnaissance de ses titres musicaux, certains se sont penchés sur l’aspect console de jeux de l’iPhone.

Jouer plus facilement, pour rendre plus agréable l’utilisation des applications vidéoludiques sur le téléphone de Steve Jobs, quelques utilisateurs ont eu l’idée de lui offrir un carcan de contrôle. De cette opération est né le iControlPad. Commencée en mai dernier, l’aventure arrive à son terme. De l’état de concept, l’objet est désormais fonctionnel selon ses constructeurs.



Il s’agit d’un boîtier de commande sur lequel se trouvent une croix directionnelle, 4 boutons d’action et les classiques touches Start et Select. L’iPhone trouve sa place au centre de l’objet en lieu et place de l’écran. Selon le site du iControlPad, il serait plus agréable de jouer à Quake avec ce système plutôt qu’à partir de l’écran tactile. On n’aura pas trop de peine à les croire.




Un prototype est d’ores et déjà créé. Son apparence laisse à désirer, mais l’objet devrait arborer un design glosy dans sa version définitive. La date de sortie de cet accessoire reste la grande inconnue. Seul son prix a transpiré. Il ne dépasserait pas les 30 $. Reste à savoir si l’ensemble ne sera pas trop encombrant dans une poche. On en doute.

Repurpose your tablet's car mount

If you do not use your car that often, and have built/bought a car mount for your tablet, why not repurpose it and stick it up to your desk near the main monitor? Having Mauku running in it which lights up the display whenever someone posts updates surely is nice. Some other use cases are monitoring servers with an open X-Terminal or listening to some music/podcasts with the media player of choice.

I built mine by buying a gooseneck mount and screwing the included car mount onto it. This still allows me to use the mount in the car, too.

A Framework for Compliance

We at Fundamo have worked hard over the past ten years to find a mechanism to ensure that our clients' deployments comply with local banking regulations. During this time, we developed significant collateral that we refined with each new deployment. We produced a substantial document with a clever model to assist our clients to ensure compliance. We have called it a Framework for Compliance.

During the recent WWU worksession organised by the GSMA, we made a number of aspects of this framework available to everybody. This was done because we believed that general access to this information by all, will improve the industry's ability to comply. It will also demonstrate that the industry has a genuine drive to find ways to comply. While others may be surprised that this intellectual property was made available, we believe that it will improve the general capability of the industry for everybody to benefit.

Aspects of the framework will appear on Fundamo's website soon and players in the industry will be welcome to download this compliance framework.

MPI as a new regulatory entity?

Since the growth of Micro Finance Institutes (MFI's) in many parts of the world, new regulatory bodies were established to regulate Micro Finance. It was (wisely) recognised that existing regulation and control for lending products cannot be made applicable (as-is) to the micro-lending industry. The much more smaller amounts and a risk profile very different to traditional mainstream lending products necesitated a new thinking. The format of regulatory bodies for MFI's are diffirent from one country to another, but many similarities exist.

As we are grapling with mobile payments, money transfer and providing banking services to the underbanked, one should consider a new category of Financial Services. At the same time it may be advisable to establish a new regulatory dispensation (with different rules and applications), to not only govern these financial services, but also facilitate the growth of the industry. The question is, will central banks and national regulators be bold enough to do this?

The first related to the screen that automatically changes a landscape when the phone is playing. While the second is the ringing phone will die if there is an incoming call phone us back ago or do we beat 2 times. This work at the time we are meeting and other.

Nearly all the features to have in office. Suppose only internet connection and a letter. For internet connection, E66 has provided facilities and Wi-Fi email settings wizard. Usually we have to manually enter the parameters and other POP3, is now automatically have the settings. Enter your email address and password, then email can be directly legible.
DESIGN
Sliding concept adopted by the phone. Nokia E66 reaches Weight 121 grams. Know, this is due to the steel material in the mobile phone body. Cover the back of the material provided with rust-resistant stainless material is quite light. On the inside there is a small sized foam 1 cm that functions as a barrier to the casing in the body.

Card number or Cellphone number

Here is a question:
" When requesting some-one to send you money via a mobile payment schema, would you want them to send it to your card-number or your cell-phone number?" What is the most suitable routing number for a mobile payment?

If we were to pose this question to consumers, I am sure that the majority would pick a cell-phone number. Using a cellphone number as a target number for mobile payments will also be more secure as it would not compromise a card number (which, if it falls in the wrong hands, can be used for fraudulent transactions).

This means that, if we were to deploy a P2P solution based on credit (or debit) cards, a mapping between the cellphone number and a card number will have to be maintained. An interesting question for me is who should ideally be in charge of this mapping table: a bank, the mobile operator or the card association?

Feedback from MMU worksession

Gavin and his team is doing an amazing job at making sure that the mobile money initiative retain the momentum that it currently enjoys. The Worksessions organised by the GSMA is a critical instrument in making sure that the industry develops into a sustainable environment for all participants in the eco-system.

During the recent worksession held at the Mount Nelson in Cape Town, the following insights struck me:
  • The complexity associated with the establishment of a viable agent network. It is critical that the micro-economics of a typical agent be designed in such a way that it is sustainable for prospective agents.
  • The mZanzi initiative of South African banks to sign-up millions of account holders offers many answers. Dave Porteous' presentation on this topic was very informative
  • Regulatory dispensations are well understood by the experts and should not be the hurdle experienced by many. However, a lot of work must still be done to ensure that it is understood better by all.

mPesa Macarena

Lets face it, mPesa has been so successful that we can now give them idol status. Almost every person with an interest in mobile payments and banking (especially when looking at emerging economies), want to do mPesa. This reminded me of that song of madness: "Macarena". The dance that everyone wanted to do to show how clever they are to be able to remember all the steps.

mPesa is very specifically applicable on the Kenya situation. The size of Safaricom, the composition of the management team, the regulatory dispensation, the need of the subscribers... all of these contributed to this amazing success. I am sure it will be recognised at some stage, that not all of us have to dance the Macarena, especially if the tune is different.

USA: Bank Failures - Faillites bancaires

Another word on Fraud

During the past few weeks, many reports highlighted the alarming growth in fraudulent transactions. Without having an authoritative body providing a holistic overview, it is unclear how big this problem is, but judging from these reports, it is probably huge:
  1. UK payment association reports that online banking fraud grew 132% form 2007 to 2008. Most of this seems to be driven by phishing and Malware attacks.
  2. The Association of Financial Professionals (AFP) of the US estimate that more than 70% of firms in the US were victims of attempted or actual payment fraud. While the majority of the fraud were check related, a large percentage were electronic payment fraud
  3. Symantec announced that they detected a growth of 66% in phishing sites and 47% in active bots creating risks for electronic fraud
  4. Gartner reports that more than five million Americans lost money because of electronic fraud during the 12 months ending September 2008
  5. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) estimated that more than 5% of Australians fell victim to electronic fraud in 2007
  6. Verizon reported that hackers stole 285 million electronic records in 2008. Of these, by far the biggest percentage were sensitive financial information destined for sale on the black market.
The lessons for mobile banking and payments are that one cannot ignore the immense threat of criminals and innovative mechanisms to defraud individuals. It is of critical importance to this young industry to design bank grade security into the solutions being deployed at the moment. As mobile payments start growing in scale, it will attract the attention of experienced cyber criminals.
