The Failed PR of HTC, Verizon, and HP [Weekly Recap]

This week on XDA TV, Azrienoch makes up for his Weekly Recap negligence by bringing you nearly every bit of news he missed the past few weeks. First, SassiBoB steps into her new role and tells us what all we might have missed on XDA TV. Then we hear about the various new conferences the OEMs are starting to encourage and entice developers, including XDA’s sponsorship of the Samsung’s invite-only DevCon. Then, Azrienoch does his best to respectfully announce the death of Steve Jobs. To liven the mood, next we’re told about new developments with UnBrickable Mod. And after Jeff explains and scolds HTC and Verizon for how they handled TrevE’s discovery of the CIQ security leaks, he works through egzthunder1’s article about HP and how they continue to violate GPL.
