Facebook phone rumours have been circulating for a while. HTC revealed the Cha Cha, a phone with a dedicated Facebook button. Cha Cha is a registered trademark, since 2007 and as you can imagine they were not very happy with HTC name for the new phone because they don’t want users thinking  they have endorsed the phone. Cha Cha is asking for money for damages and an injuction to prevent the phone going to market with their name.    

Twitter Down

So it would appear Twitter is down. I have not been able to access twitter at all, after a quick Google search it would appear I am not alone. It would appear most users are not able to access the site however some are but those lucky enough to be able to access the site are experiencing slow loading times. The site Twitter Status  says “currently experiencing elevated error rates” Twitter better get fixing this pronto.
