HTC withdraws from the Brazilian market, A spokesperson for the Taiwanese company HTC confirms date information disclosed by the Brazilian daily examination namely, the end of commercialization of terminals in Brazil.
A decision that comes as the Brazilian market is a key goal for the entire industry: with 8.9 million smartphones sold in 2011, Brazil continued to rise and analysts estimate that by 2016 the country could be expected to become the fourth world market, ahead of the United Kingdom.
The HTC One will not be launched in the country and several hundred jobs will be eliminated in the Brazilian territory. The company will retain an entity in place to ensure the terminal support already on the market.

The verdict is, Assange, founder of Wikileaks, will be extradited to Sweden where he is accused of sexually assaulting two young women, aggression he has always denied. Five of the seven judges of the High Court of Justice UK have indeed given the green light for the extradition.
On probation and house arrest for two years, Assange had already appealed in February 2011 for the same judgment. This time, all cards are exhausted English to avoid extradition, and his only recourse is the European Court of Human Rights.
Assange was arrested in 2010 for sexual assaults, shortly after the release of thousands of confidential diplomatic cables from the white house. This very short period of time between the two cases is an argument for the proponents of conspiracy theories. If Assange is repatriated to Sweden, he might fear extradition to the United States where it may very big.

Microsoft has just released its figures for the third fiscal quarter. And the numbers are quite good. Redmond says in effect that its revenue is up 6% to 17.41 billion dollars and recording a profit of 5.11 billion. Well beyond the 17.18 billion expected by the market.
This is the pro division that allows such an increase. The business division sign up in revenues of 9% to $ 5.81 billion, and the Windows division represents $ 4.62 billion profit.
Still, the entertainment division is struggling in this fiscal year for Microsoft. Indeed, with the Xbox 360 sales rising to 1.4 million consoles sold against 2.7 million last year at this time (although the 360 is the console that sells the best), Microsoft posted a 16% drop in its entertainment sector. The fault also Windows phones that are struggling to impose.
A drop logic. The slowdown in the Xbox 360 is quite normal. The console nearing the end of life attracted more consumers now expect the next generation. Especially to two months of E3 where Redmond could introduce its new console (which would still be amazing). In addition, Windows phones are handicapped by the upcoming release of Windows 8, while Redmond is not clear on the fact of compatibility with Win 7 WP 8. Microsoft is therefore within the scope of consumer expectations about new products of the firm, and the results of next year with the same period could well be very different.
