Avast has been busy today. The company has released its new Mobile Backup app in Google Play, and it looks to have an okay feature set (it was previously in beta). The Mobile Security and Antivirus app also got a substantial update. Mobile Backup will grab your contacts, call log, images, videos, SMS, and more, then upload them to the cloud for safe keeping.
Bitdefender (check out our review of their Mobile Security app here) and Android Police have teamed up to bring you one of our biggest giveaways ever, giving you a chance to one of eight awesome grand prizes (or one of 10 runner-up prizes) - one of four ASUS Transformer Prime 32GB tablets, or one of four GSM unlocked Galaxy Nexus smartphones.
I'll admit it, I'm anal about CPU and RAM usage. I'm the kind of person that goes into MSConfig every 6 months to scrape useless startup processes like barnacles off the hull of a ship to keep boot times down and squeeze every last possible increment of free RAM and CPU that I can (insert "Then you should use Linux" joke here) out of my system. If you're like me, then you probably avoid heavy, suite-ized security solutions like the bubonic plague crossed with bird flu.
