Back in June 2015, T-Mobile announced that they would start selling the Lumia 640. Unfortunately it would seem that barely 2 months after the device was released on the carrier’s network that T-Mobile has decided that they will no longer be selling the handset. It seems that this has to do with the demand for the handset.
In a statement T-Mobile provided to the folks at Windows Central, “We work closely with phone manufacturers, including Microsoft, to continually adjust our device portfolio based on supply and customer demand. As a result of this, we no longer have inventory to support taking online orders for the Lumia 640 – and Microsoft will not be providing us with additional inventory.” Read full post →Lumia 640 No Longer Sold By T-Mobile After 2 Months
As if the creation of malware wasn’t bad enough, it seems that a student from Carnegie Mellon University, a 20-year by the name of Morgan C.

Culbertson had recently pleaded guilty in court for selling a malware he had created and could face up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.
To be specific, he pleaded guilty to a charge of “conspiracy to damage protected computers”. Culbertson is one of three men who were responsible for creating an Android malware called Dendroid, and that him and his partners had planned to sell the malware on an online marketplace for $300, essentially distributing the malware to others who might use it for even more nefarious purposes.
