Stress Test Google Latitude: Android User’s Help Needed
XDA moderator Stericson, known for being the creator of MetaMorph and NinjaMorph, is stress testing Google Latitude on Android. Goal of this stress test is to see how it performs under heavy load. The way he tests it is by getting as much ‘Latitude friends’ as possible. The current number of friends is 840 and Google Mobile seems to be showing some interest in the test.
However, 840 Latitude friends is not enough yet. He needs a lot more to push the limits as far as possible. That’s why he asked us to place a notice on the portal, asking Android users to be a part of this.

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...
