According to a report in China Business News, a recruitment firm that works with a Foxconn plant in Henan Province has begun a large-scale recruitment of workers for production of Apple's next-gen phone. Though the report refers to the product as the "iPhone 6," this appears to be guesswork, as there is no indication of a model number confirmation from Foxconn. Sprint announced the upcoming availability of the HTC 8XT, the carrier's first Windows Phone 8 device. Sprint will launch the HTC 8XT on July 19th for $99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year agreement. Microsoft said hackers have attacked some computers by exploiting a bug in Windows first disclosed two months ago by a Google researcher, who came under fire at the time for publicizing the flaw without going to the software company first.
