XDA is Back; SOPA/PIPA Still a Threat

We want to thank all of you for signing our pledge today. We hit 50,000 signatures much faster than expected (actually, we had over 80,000 before eliminating duplicate IPs). We debated staying dark longer, but are keeping our commitment to XDA members to return online at the 50,000 mark.

We know that sites like Wikipedia will continue to raise awareness among the general public. We hope more savvy users–like those on XDA–will continue to be the loudest and most vocal opponents of SOPA and PIPA. We all have the most to lose. Whether you signed our pledge or not, please do contact your local Senator or Representative, or, if you’re not in the US, inform any friends or family you have in the States that might not know about the damaging repercussions of SOPA and PIPA.

XDA continues to look for ways to protest this legislation. If you have any ideas, please PM Svetius.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
