Terry Halvorsen was the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at the US Department of Defence till February this year, but right now, he has been hired by Samsung Mobile as their executive vice president. The ex-deputy commander of the US Naval Network's Warfare division will be working directly under the CEO of Samsung Mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun as an advisor. His main job will apparently be to assist the South Korean company in expanding their network security business across both the US and Europe.
This move is part of the company's ongoing venture to work with the military in different countries. Not to say that Samsung is an amateur in this field though, since they have had a business relation with the US Department of Defence for more than three years now. However, after the recent revelations and allegations regarding Samsung's own Tizen OS having a whole bunch of security gaps in it, things may seem a bit dicey right now. On that note, one can speculate that maybe Samsung hired Terry Halvorsen in order to make sure that such mistakes do not happen in the future?

LG broke it's silent about its upcoming flagship, An LG exec. announced that his company won't be unveiling the LG G4 at the MWC 2015 event on March. He explained that the reason behind this decision because they want to spend more time perfecting the new phone, now comes another nugget of info about the upcoming flagship, straight from LG's conference call with investors during the quarterly earnings report.
LG Mobile is apparently planning to make a big product announcement in Q2, which will likely be the G4, as its predecessor, the G3, was announced during a dedicated even at the end of May last year.
The LG exec continued that with the G4, design will continue to differentiate in terms of strategy, leaving us wonder whether he means another innovative placement of the physical keys, or an outright change in housing materials, given that the S6 is widely rumored to be metal-clad, for instance.
