Enter Windows 8, Stage Left [Weekly Recap]

This week on XDA TV, SassiBoB takes the recapital reigns to deliver the sad, so sad news that she is leaving the Weekly Recap to pursue bigger opportunities. And as much as that might cause you to pound your fists on the floor and cry in agony, she musters the strength to recap this week’s news, such as AdamOutler’s release of the Unbrickable Mod for the Samsung Vibrant, and Mike1986’s work to turn the HTC Sensation into the HTC Sensation XE. And in an adorable attempt to rant with the best of them, Bob explains why she thinks Microsoft’s Windows 8 is important to the future of tablets and smartphones, and thus why the addition of the Windows 8 forums on XDA-Developers is an excellent step forward.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
