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?

Punish Those Who Offend You with Angry Pocket Voodoo
Have you ever felt like someone or something was having a go at you simply because of a fight? Ever had that burning sensation in the back of your ears, which normally points at people talking about you? How about those unexplained and sudden surges of pain, as if someone were sticking needles into your muscles? If this all sounds familiar, you either have some medical problems (may want to get those checked), or someone is playing with a Voodoo doll somewhere in the world.
While we know that most of this is not a real practice, many people have claimed that it works for several centuries. And even in this day and age, Voodooism is still actively practiced. To aid those who have moved on to more modern techniques, XDA Forum Member 4ilab developed Angry Pocket Voodoo. The app is essentially the same concept as a standard voodoo doll. You get a virtual rag doll, upon which you can attach a picture of your “victim.” Once that is ready, you can start working your “magic” to inflict all kinds of painful experiences on your target—all the way down to dismemberment. So, if you ever wanted to rip someone to pieces or stab needles into their legs, now is your chance.
The dev would like to get some feedback on this app, so, if you happen to try it out, please report any bugs and make suggestions to make this app even better. Have fun!
For anyone who is searching for a remedy to reduce stress!

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...
