New Facebook and HTC smartphone reportedly coming in 2013

We've heard rumors which claim a new Android smartphone from Facebook and HTC is on the way, but today Bloomberg is reporting a mid-2013 window for the phone's arrival. Apparently, the original plan was to release the phone sometime before the sun sets on 2012, but with HTC wanting to work on different projects, this new Facebook phone has now been pushed back to mid-2013. This also gives Facebook more time to develope its modified operating system for the new phone, sources close to the project have said.

Apple offers temporary fix for in-app purchase hack

Apple offers temporary fix for in-app purchase hack

Late last week, we caught wind of a hack that allows iPhone users to receive content from in-app purchases without actually paying for it.

Of course, saying that it will fix the vulnerabilities in the next release of iOS doesn't help much when developers are stuck dealing with this hack now, so Apple has also issued a temporary fix that should suffice until iOS 6 is available.
