I have always been a fan of Sony products. Back in high school, Sony used to be the preferred Walkman music player. They revolutionised the world with the minidisc, which unfortunately didn’t catch on in the rest of the world. Sony jumped on the Android bandwagon and has produced a few of the most recognized Android phones, namely the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play.Sony Is Still Trying To Please Everybody

After being informed of a gaping security hole in devices that it manufactures, HTC has promised to send out an over-the-air (OTA) fix for the vulnerability.
HTC is still conducting a series of tests for the upcoming OTA patch.

These tools gather user information such as SMS data, email accounts, last GPS location, phone logs, and systems log–which are data that only specific users and privileged apps should be allowed to access.
The security hole can be exploited by malicious third-party apps, a deed that [...]
