Moshi for iPad
  • By Aldo Panessidi


    The founder of one of Europe’s leading illegal movie-streaming sites confessed and apologized for his crimes and got his sentence cut in half by a German judge.  Deutsche Welle reported that 39-year-old Kino.to founder “Dirk B.” has been sentenced to 4.5 years in jail. He could have been ordered to spend 11 years in prison, but received a reduced sentence after confessing to his copyright infringement crimes.


    Jail time and fines for Kino.to founder


    Millions of eager viewers downloaded movies and watched them on the latest smartphones including the iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy2, HTC EVO 


    Many viewers also used tablets like the New iPad/iPad 3, Samsung Tab, Motorola Xoom and the HTC Flyer 


    Dirk B. will have to pay a $4.7 million fine to cover 1.1 million instances of copyright infringement. While in operation, Kino.to is estimated to have brought in as much as $8 million in advertising revenue.


    Most recently, law enforcement officials in Sweden first raided The Pirate Bay in 2006, and the company’s founders were eventually sentenced to jail and forced to pay millions in fines. The service remained online, however, and it is still operational today.   “The Swedish district attorney Fredrik Ingblad initiated a new investigation into The Pirate Bay back in 2010. Information has been leaked to us every now and then by multiple sources, almost on a regular basis. It’s an interesting read,” The Pirate Bay said on its blog. “We can certainly understand why WikiLeaks wished to be hosted in Sweden, since so much data leaks there. The reason that we get the leaks is usually that the whistleblowers do not agree with what is going on. Something that the governments should have in mind – even your own people do not agree.”

    HTC the manufacturer of the HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC One VHTC Evo, HTC Amaze smartphones and HTC Flyer and HTC Jetstream tablets   is buying S3 Graphics in an effort to add to its patent portfolio, as well as help defend itself from some of the lawsuit activity plaguing the electronics and software industries.


    HTC working on its own patent protection by acquiring S3 Graphics


    Grace Lei, HTC’s general counsel, said the company wants ownership of S3′s patents, in part, as a response to the 2011 U.S. International Trade Commission finding that Apple was in violation of various S3 patents (although this ruling was later overturned.) As Lei put it at the annual HTC shareholder’s meeting, “We think S3′s patent portfolio is valid and strong, and we have decided to complete the purchase of S3 after cautious assessment.” Lei also noted that S3 owns about 270 patents, including those licensed to Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft.


    HTC has been locked in a battle with Apple over its alleged infringement of Apple patents in its Android handsets. Apple had been able get U.S. Customs to delay shipments of the HTC One X smartphone to U.S. carriers, in effect delaying that device’s launch by two weeks.


    U.S. Customs cleared the devices for shipment at the end of May. HTC is insisting that its technology does not infringe upon Apple’s patents.

  • We did have major reports that the CyanogenMod 6 will be coming out on the Sprint Unlocked HTC  EVO 4G Phone. However we did not really have much of a time frame attached with the release but as per what we have seen recently, the CM 6 is ready and is running pretty well on the EVO 4G.  This is a welcome change from the Sense UI which in our opinion was getting somewhat cumbersome and posing a large number of problems for the users, Although the Sense UI has been a worth service provider for the user but the in built Android UI is far easier to use as compared to this one. This however is a departure from what is was before.



    We believe that the CyanogenMod 6 will grant the EVO owners a great feel for the Android 2.2  phone or the Froyo and allow them to escape the HTC custom skin on the Sense UI.  In fact the faster the new ROM is launched on the EVO, the faster it can get the update for the Froyo which it could not have done otherwise. The release date for the update was around Christmas. In a statement given by the company, they have said that they would prefer picking the early release of the Froyo on their phone almost half a year ahead of time, to sticking with the Sense UI. Furthermore what has pushed this decision of theirs is the fact that CM 6 other than getting Froyo out early on the HTC EVO 4G also has great amounts of features like the facility which allows you to pair it with a mouse via Bluetooth. What you can do is you can then connect the video output through a HDMI port and you have a proverbial computer on your hands. This is amazing in our opinion. According to us, it is not long till we see this update and more in the market.

  • With the release of the Unlocked IPhone 4 a few days ago, many developers and phone manufacturers have now started paying attention and worrying that their sales would drop. However, one manufacturer that does not worry about the iPhone 4 is that of Sprint as according to the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, while the iPhone might have certain features that stand out against other manufacturers, HTC’s EVO 4G, carried by Sprint, can hold its own and prevent current users  from flocking to the iPhone. There might be some truth in this considering EVO is the first 4G mobile launched in the country.



    Says Robert Brust, Sprint’s CFO, “We know that with the launch of the iPhone from Apple there is an air of worry with many manufacturers, but Sprint is not one of them as our EVO 4G is the first such phone in the nation. We also expect our end of year results to be much better than last year.”



    “Every year when there is a new introduction in the market from Apple, most U.S carriers wonder ‘what if’- What if our customers leave us and decide to go in for the iPhone. As people’s contracts tend to expire, one expects that they will change over to AT&T’s iPhone,” says Brust. Last year it was stated that the Sprint Palm Pre would be able to overcome the effect of the iPhone which was not the case. However, according to Brust, the Pre was a phone for those that did not want the iPhone, whereas the HTC  Unlocked ( EVO 4G )  is a good option instead of the iPhone.


    This might be true as the EVO 4G is simply stunning as apart from the battery life, the display, responsiveness and speed of the device were lauded. It seems that Sprint is not the only one excited about the EVO 4G as sales of the phone have increased within the last week.

  • Remember one of our previous articles stating that there were an unbelievable number of sales made by Sprint in the sale of their HTC EVO 4G? Well, apparently it did not happen. Sprint says that it “miscalculated” the number of devices it actually sold. We had earlier reported that the EVO 4G carried by Sprint had broken its earlier records in a single day and sold three times the number devices that the Samsung Instinct and Unlocked Palm Pre devices sold in their first three days together. This came as quite a surprise to many around the country.



    However, a retraction statement printed by Sprint suggests that it had overstated the total number of devices sold on launch day, “inadvertedly”. Instead of selling three times the number of devices of the Samsung Instinct and the Palm Pre, the EVO 4G sold a total number in line with these two phones. A press release of Sprint acknowledges the error  stating, “We had previously stated that the total number of launch day sales of the EVO 4G was six times greater than the sales of the Samsung Instinct for the same day and nearly twice that of the Palm Pre. While sales for the HTC Unlocked ( EVO 4G ) continue to rise, we erred in comparison of these phones as the total number of sales of the EVO 4G were in line with those of the Instinct and Palm Pre. We now acknowledge our error in judgment and state that the total sales of the EVO 4G on launch day were in line with those of the Instinct and Palm Pre over the first three days.”


    Well, there you have it, a complete apology directly on the website. So what is the final word? While, we should credit Sprint for actually going ahead and printing an apology, they should have really got their act together in the first place before going ahead and publishing untrue facts.

  • Earlier today cell phone network Sprint announced that the forthcoming HTC Unlocked (EVO 4G) will be one of the first mobile handsets in the US to support live video chats.  The application that will be used for these video chats is being provided Qik, which already offers a live video streaming service for smartphones.  Sprint did not mention if this feature would incur extra charges on top of the required data plan.



    The new HTC EVO 4G can also handle simultaneous voice and data sessions in 4G markets.  This new phone will also be able to stream HD video content.  According to Sprint it will be the first mobile device with ability to watch YouTube videos in “high quality.”


    The HTC EVO 4G will require a $70/month Everything Unlimited plan and WiMax 4G access will incur an additional $10 per month which is mandatory for certain 4G devices no matter if there is WiMax coverage or not.  Consumers can also choose to make the EVO 4G hotspot available for up to eight devices for an additional $30 per month.  The HTC EVO 4G is set for release on June 4th.


    As if we needed more features for the Unlocked HTC Phone ( EVO 4G) to get us excited about its pending release on June 4th Sprint makes this announcement today that this device will be able to handle live video chats.  Consumers are already excited about the reported speeds of the 4G network and the high quality video that is supposedly going to accompany the HTC EVO 4G.  Now with this announcement that people will be able to hold live video chats on their mobile devices will surely prompt a few more consumers to purchase this new mobile device when it finally hits the stores.
