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?

Sixaxis Controller Configuration Tutorial for GTA III
One of the biggest pains of playing video games on a non-console platform is configuring your controller to work properly. Making sure everything works in every environment, testing and re-testing until everything seems right.
Well, if you’re a Sixaxis controller user and you play GTA III, then this is a pain you won’t need pills to fix. XDA Senior Member Jameslepable has taken the trouble to figure out the most optimal button configuration and has created a tutorial to help those who are having trouble doing it.
The instructions for use are relatively simple and noob friendly, so it doesn’t take a great deal of knowledge to get his configuration to work. His instructions:
1)Download sixaxis and GTA3 from market place (obviously)
2)Download profile from bottom of post.
3) From GTA3 menu go to options>controls>adjust on foot controls/adjust driving controls and make them look like the screenshot.
4)Then go to sixaxis controller settings>edit touch profiles>Load Profile>gta3 vx.x and ensure that they match the screenshots.
The file he mentions can be found, along with the screenshots needed, further instructions and the button mapping list in the original thread. So far, it’s confirmed working on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus since that’s where it’s posted, but the directions seem pretty universal and could possibly be used on other devices as well if they’re compatible with GTA III and Sixaxis.
Now, as Jameslepable puts it,
Go shoot some hookers!

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...
