MTV releases Android app offering full TV show episodes, bonus content

MTV has released an Android app on Google Play for its programming, bringing it in line with the version for iOS devices. The free app lets users watch recently-broadcast TV shows on a mobile device, though only after the user has authenticated a cable subscription with the app, reports Android Community. Other users can watch smaller video clips, see extra show content, view show-specific Twitter feeds, and read music and fashion news.




Dogecoin wallet service hacked, estimated 21 million coins taken

A storage service for Dogecoin, a virtual currency in a similar vein to Bitcoin, has revealed its servers were hacked with the intention of stealing the currency. A page at Dogewallet was modified to make all transactions point to one specific account, stealing an estimated 21 million Dogecoins worth approximately $12,000. Dogewallet has shut down its website and, in a message on its site and on Reddit, has begun the process of refunding coins back to their rightful owners.
