Tech News RoundUp: Zynga, Microsoft, Apple and HTC


Zynga launches Zynga.com

Zynga announced launched a new site, Zynga.com, where users can play social games directly without logging on Facebook.
It is a big move by Zynga considering the fact that Facebook gets 12 % of its revenue from Zynga, & Zynga gets more than 90 % of its revenue from Facebook.
But that doesn’t mean Zynga will withdraw games from Facebook and it will continue to use Facebook Credits as the virtual goods payment system even for Zynga.com’s users.

But it is definitely a good move by Zynga as a long term strategy to increase its revenue and build a stand-alone website and brand.

More Loopholes in Apple iOS

After reports of various apps storing your address book on their servers, the New York Times reported that apps without permission can access your photos as well.
After a user on iPhone gives an application permission to have access to location info, the app can copy the user’s entire photo library, without any further warning/notification, according to various app developers.

This is a much bigger threat than the address book loophole.
Apple have not given a comment on this issue yet.
