Just two days after news broke that Verizon Wireless is collecting and in some cases selling web browsing info, its parent company has been given a black eye for insecure practices associated with the FiOS Internet service.

Verizon Is Still Using 'Supercookies' To Track Your Browsing Whether You Like It Or Not

If you are using data as a Verizon Wireless customer, Verizon is tracking you. Not only that, but their method to ensure that you can't navigate around it makes your unique identifier visible to every website you visit. The injected data has been called a "supercookie," a term that reflects the fact that it is not removable like a tracking cookie. Now, recent reports show that at least one third-party ad agency has been using Verizon's supercookie to track users after they have deleted cookies or opted out of data collection.

DROID Ultra, Maxx, and Mini All Get Minor Updates With Advanced Calling Improvements

In a series of very minor updates, three of Verizon's DROID line will be getting Advanced Calling 1.0 enhancements. The Ultra, Maxx, and Mini will each receive what amounts to the same update, which is described as no more than "bug fixes and stability improvements" to Verizon's VoLTE calling service. For the unfamiliar, Advanced Calling promises far clearer voice quality by using only LTE when possible and on supported phones.

[Updated] Verizon Galaxy Note 3 OTA Update Brings The Phone To Android 4.4.4, Improves Data, Voice Quality, And Bluetooth

Update, January 11th, 2015: Verizon has issued another update alert for the Galaxy Note 4.4.4. This one also updates the phone to 4.4.4 and includes the same changelog, but for some reason the build number is changed to N900VVRUDNK1. Whether or not there was a problem with the original rollout, we can't say, but it appears to be continuing.

No, it's not Android 5.0. There, we've got that over with.

Verizon Picks Up The Galaxy Note Edge Priced At $399 With A Two-Year Contract Or $799 Without

Three of America's five largest carriers all started selling Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge back in early November for a price just short of physically painful. For whatever reason, Verizon Wireless (along with US Cellular) needed an extra two months to add the device to its lineup.

Fortunately, there's a bright side. While the Big Red still wants the same $399.99 with a two-year contract, it's only asking for $799.99 to sell the phone outright.

Both AT&T And Verizon Send OTA Updates For Carrier Versions Of The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 And 10.1

Here's something you don't see every day. American carriers AT&T and Verizon both offer the fourth-generation models of the Galaxy Tab 8.0 and 10.1, and this weekend, they're each updating both versions. That indicates some kind of coordinated effort on the part of Samsung's software engineers... or a remarkable coincidence. In any case, owners should start seeing the over-the-air updates come in today, though some will have to wait a few more days.

Verizon's LG G Pad 8.3 Gets A Small Update To Add LTE Roaming And Fix Power-On Issues

LG's G Pad 8.3 is, at least for the moment, the company's most high-end tablet available on Verizon's proprietary CDMA/LTE network. Today this carrier-specific model (VK810) gets a small software update to address one big user issue, one small carrier issue, and an outdated app. The latter is the Redbox streaming video app, formerly supported by Verizon, and now out of service. The latest update removes the RedBox app completely.
