Courts reject Hasbro claim the Trasnformer tablets stole their copyright.

   Asus' Transformer Prime is one fine bit of kit but the company has faced a lawsuit from Hasbro, the people behind the toys from the Transformers movie. But, today a judge has thrown out their case, highlighting that people don't get confused between the two, the tablet itself does actually transform and the fact that Hasbro took a very long time before it decided to complain about the name. 
   It's always good to see some common sense being exercised with things like this and now everyone can peacefully co-exist knowing there is a clear divide between Transformers and Transformers..... Ohhh yeah awkward... maybe that's why they sued.

HTC set to temporarily end HTCSense.com.

   HTC has today warned it's faithful who have used HTCSense.com to back up messages and contacts have until March the 30th to download their information and store it elsewhere while HTC set to work rejuvenating the site with a lovely new design. 

   It is a tiny bit of an inconvenience, but HTC assures us it does need doing. Just make sure you don't forget because you will lose anything you leave stored on there.
