According to engadget (citing TouchPal as well as an internal source), HTC aims to replace Swype with TouchPal as the default input method in upcoming devices, including the new HTC One M9. The official TouchPal Twitter account also tweeted the engadget article about this, further confirming the move. What prompted this move?

HTC Peep Security Update for Windows Mobile
A few days ago we published an article on the Portal regarding HTC Peep Vulnerability. Well, today we have an update thanks to XDA member cajunflavoredbob who posted a series of .cabs. The developer pulled files apart and recompiled again with the help of XDA member JVH3 changing the way the Twitter Tab (HTC Peep) authenticates your user account. They should work on Windows Mobile 6.5, 6.5.x, and perhaps also on 6.1 but you need to have Sense 2.5 on your device to make it work. The developer mentions that the 4 files contained on the original thread are more or less the same, so you may want to try several to see which one works better for you. Remember that these cabs could harm your device, so be sure to know what you are doing before proceeding.

Peep Update *.cabs
After pulling them apart and recompiling them, with the help of JVH3, here are the HTC Peep Update *.cabs. These are for Windows Mobile users with version 6.5 or higher. It should work, in theory with version 6.1, but I didn’t feel like testing it out. Obviously, you’ll need Sense 2.5 as well. There are four versions, but they all seem to be exactly the same. I didn’t notice any differences other than the dates they were packaged. The Rhodium version seemed to have a slightly smaller TwitterApp.exe file, but I still don’t think it was different.

Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
