HTC fixes rare One S chipping finish issue, swaps phones for free

HTC fixes rare One S chipping finish issue, swaps phones for free
The black HTC One S uses a process called micro arc oxidation (MAO) to harden its aluminum unibody and make it feel like ceramic. We’ve recently experienced some chipping on the finish of one of our review units, so we reached out to HTC to find out if this is a known problem. Turns out we’re not the only ones to report the issue, and while rare, the company’s gone ahead and tweaked its manufacturing process and is offering to swap affected phones for free for existing customers. Here’s HTC’s statement:

HTC is committed to delivering a high quality product and great experience for all our customers. There have been a few, isolated reports of this issue. The finish on the One S was laboratory tested as being at a hardness similar to ceramic. While that’s hard, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to damage. Regardless, HTC takes quality very seriously and are providing all customers with an immediate fix and we are implementing some small changes to ensure customers do not experience this issue in the future.

Facebook Offers starts rolling out, spamming your news feed with coupons

When Facebook first announced Offers you we’re probably wondering if there was even room for yet another coupon service. Between Google, Groupon, Yelp, Living Social and countless others we’re not entirely sure there’s a niche left untapped for Facebook, but that isn’t going to stop Zuck and crew from trying. The service is officially rolling out as we speak, and offering its wares to any business with a Facebook page, regardless of size. The hope is that it’ll catch on with smaller businesses in particular, which will now have an easy way to place deals directly into user’s news feeds. Of course, after the failure of Facebook Deals, you’d be forgiven for assuming this experiment is doomed from moment one. Check out the video after the break and the source link for more details.

Google Chrome and Chromium add protection against malicious downloads

google chrome malicious download

Google Chrome already sports a number of security-minded features, from Incognito mode to a software sandbox which makes exploiting the browser a Herculean task. Now, Google has announced additional protection for Chromium and Chrome users.

Built upon the Safe Browsing API, the new feature introduces protection against malicious downloads. If a download link appears in the Safe Browsing blacklist, Chrome and Chromium will warn users against downloading — a save button is still presented, of course, in case you’re convinced a file is perfectly safe to download.

We’d like to see something a bit more eye-catching than the red warning icon — like perhaps painting the entire bar red. Many of the people a feature like this aims to protect probably won’t notice the icon or change in wording as they’ll be focused on clicking the save button.

Google is initially making download protection available to Chrome dev channel users, and you’ll likely see it in Canary and Chromium snapshot builds as well. After thorough testing, beta and stable users will be next in line.
