Members of China's two million strong army are banned from wearing unauthorised tech while on duty China has forbidden its armed forces from wearing internet-connected wearable tech, according to reports. The People's Liberation Army Daily, the Chinese military's official newspaper, said security concerns had been raised after one recruit had received a smartwatch as a birthday gift. News site NBC said its sources had confirmed a ban was now in place. One expert said the move was a natural extension of restrictions already placed by most armies on mobile phones. The PLA Daily said army leaders had sought the advice of experts last month after being alerted to an incident in which a soldier had tried to use a smartwatch to take a photo of his comrades stationed at the eastern city of Nanjing. It said the country's agency responsible for protecting state secrets subsequently issued the following decree: "The use of wearables with internet access, location information, and voice-calling functions should be considered a violation of confidential regulations when used by military personnel." The newspaper reported that teaching materials and warning signs had subsequently been created to ensure that the message was spread among military personnel. "The moment a soldier puts on a device that can record high-definition audio and video, take photos, and process and transmit data, it's very possible for him or her to be tracked or to reveal military secrets," it added. A spokeswoman from the UK's Ministry of Defence was unable to provide a statement about its own rules. But one expert suggested that other armed forces were likely to adopt similar rules. "Any self-aware organisation will have measures for operational security," said Peter Quentin, a research fellow at the British defence think tank Rusi. "Anything that is networked - whether it is in your pocket or on your wrist - can be remotely accessed and exploited by others to provide an advantage to adversaries. "That can happen inadvertently or be done deliberately, so it needs to be controlled wherever possible.

He added, however, that there could sometimes be benefits from letting soldiers use wearable tech beyond battlefield duties. Mr Quentin highlighted the case of Our War, a BBC Three documentary series that made use of footage filmed by British troops who had fitted small video cameras to their helmets. Officials had initially tried to clamp down on the troops' personal use of the kit before it became apparent that the resulting video was useful. "It helped the Army communicate the realities of the operations in Afghanistan through the soldiers' own eyes, which was very powerful," Mr Quentin said. Source:http://www.bbc.com/
China could have a new homegrown operating system by October to take on imported rivals such as Microsoft Corp, Google Inc and Apple Inc, Xinhua news agency said on Sunday. Computer technology became an area of tension between China and the United States after a number of run-ins over cyber security. China is now looking to help its domestic industry catch up with imported systems such as Microsoft's Windows and Google's mobile operating system Android. The operating system would first appear on desktop devices and later extend to smartphone and other mobile devices, Xinhua said, citing Ni Guangnan who heads an official OS development alliance established in March. Ni's comments were originally reported by the People's Post and Telecommunications News, an official trade paper run by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). "We hope to launch a Chinese-made desktop operating system by October supporting app stores," Ni told the trade paper. Some Chinese OS already existed, but there was a large gap between China's technology and that of developed countries, he added. He said he hoped domestically built software would be able to replace desktop operating systems within one to two years and mobile operating systems within three to five years. In May, China banned government use of Windows 8, Microsoft's latest operating system, a blow to the U.S. technology firm's business which raised fears China was moving to protect domestic firms. Microsoft is also under investigation for anti-trust violations. In March last year, China said that Google had too much control over China's smartphone industry via its Android mobile operating system and has discriminated against some local firms. Mutual suspicions between China and the United States over hacking have escalated over the past year following revelations by Edward Snowden that U.S. intelligence planted "backdoor" surveillance tools on U.S.-made hardware. The U.S. Justice Department, meanwhile, indicted five Chinese military officers in May on counts of extensive industrial espionage. Ni said the ban on Windows 8 was a big opportunity for the Chinese sector to push forward its own systems, but that the industry needed further development and investment. "Creating an environment that allows us to contend with Google, Apple and Microsoft - that is the key to success," he added.
