HTC’s One, the company’s flagship phone that drew great reviews but failed to become a big hit, sank the company’s first-quarter earnings.

The Taiwan-based company’s unaudited results, released on Monday, showed a net loss before taxes of $ 62 million on revenues of $ 1.1 billion, down from $ 1.4 billion in the previous quarter. The loss comes after HTC posted its first quarterly loss ever last October. HTC posted a net profit of $ 10 million in its fourth quarter, which came in below analysts’ expectations.

Released in March 2013, the One was released on a staggered basis due to manufacturing delays. Upon release, many reviewers deemed it the best Android phone on the market...

The journey to a coveted internship program isn’t easy

For job seekers, an internship can be a great way to test the waters of a new company or industry, as well as gain invaluable experience; but opportunities are often competitive and can be elusive. It’s important to go into the search with a clear idea about what you want to accomplish, the skills you’d like to cultivate and connections you hope to build.

Companies seeking to hone their internship offerings must take the talent pool, as well as other factors, into careful consideration. Not only is it crucial to craft the ideal program that will foster the next generation of workers, but also to consider elements like compensation and the skills that interns are looking to gain during their stint.

Rovio released its highly-anticipated Angry Birds Space on Thursday — and its easily the most inventive game in the franchise yet.

I should add that I’m no fan of the original. Angry Birds never grabbed me; after a few levels the content felt recycled. As far as mobile puzzles go, there are many more challenging games.

But Angry Birds Space feels different in gameplay, if not in the premise. It sees the familiar bird crew shooting off to space to battle the pig enemy once again. The game presents the 60 levels a planets to explore and conquer as your rid the galaxy of bovine scum. (It was very hard not to yell “PIGS IN SPACE!” while playing this game.)

But while the classic elements remain, to draw players familiar with the franchise, the levels turn many of the gameplay ideas on ...

Samsung trademarks Galaxy Emerge, Halo, and Stellar names

Samsung is adding to its cadre of potential new phone names, filing three new trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Korean mobile maker has cast dibs on Galaxy Emerge, Galaxy Halo, and Galaxy Stellar. While we can’t say what the names will be used for (if used at all) specifically, the filings are categorized as relating to “Mobile phones; Smartphons.” We could speculate that these names will be attached to US variants of the upcoming Galaxy S III, but they are just as likely to be applied to low-end or midrange Galaxy handsets. The Halo and Stellar names, at least, seem to have some sort of celestial or otherworldly connotations. Other recent Samsung trademark filings include the Galaxy Axiom, Galaxy Awaken, Galaxy Heir, and Galaxy Rite.
