Today's topics include Google giving publishers a way to load content faster on mobile devices, FireEye reveals a new Android Malvertising threat, Samsung's Q3 profit forecasts beat analysts' estimates, and Big Switch and Facebook demonstrate their open switch software.

Google has launched an open-source initiative dubbed Accelerated Mobile Pages that is designed to give publishers a way to load their content faster on mobile devices. Central to the effort is AMP HTML, a new framework built out of existing Web technologies that Google says will give Website owners a way to build lightweight Web pages optimized for faster loading on mobile devices.

Security firm FireEye reported yesterday a new malicious adware attack called Kemoge that is already affecting Android users around the world. While the full impact of Kemoge has yet to be quantified, FireEye warns that it's non-trivial. FireEye research scientist Yulong Zhang told eWEEK that they don't have the exact infection number in the wild, but based on the fact that customers from over 20 countries have been infected, the infection range should be quite large.

Based on forecasts from about 30 financial analysts, Samsung's estimated third-quarter 2015 operating profit is expected to be about $6.3 billion, which is an increase of about 80 percent from the same quarter one year ago. The forecast and estimates were revealed yesterday in a post on the Samsung Tomorrow blog. They also estimated Q3 sales at about $44.4 billion. 

Big Switch Networks, Facebook and NTT are unveiling a Linux-based network operating system that can be used to bring together the disparate networking components that have been developed within the Facebook-led Open Compute Project. The three companies will demonstrate Open Network Linux tomorrow at the Open Compute Project's Engineering Workshop in Boston. Big Switch contributed Open Network Linux to the OCP, and now more than 15 open switch hardware platforms support the operating system, including Facebook's Wedge switch.
