Authorization problem for Facebook in HTC One X

I recently started receiving error of "Authorization problem" on my HTC One X with my Facebook app. It seemed that HTC Sense was not able to access my Facebook account and this error message continually popped up in my notification.

Zoom in and out with single hand on Google Chrome for Android

Some time back I ran into this article which detailed about a nifty feature which enables you to zoom in and out of Google Maps by just one finger. To perform a one-hand zoom simply double tap and, after the second tap, leave your finger pressed. You can then move your finger up and down to zoom in an out.

And after the recent update to Google Chrome on Android (version 32) I found that this feature has been also been added there. So now you can zoom in and out using just one finger.

New features in HTC One X with Sense 5 and Jelly Bean 4.2.2

Around 2-3 months back I upgraded my HTC One X to 4.19.720.1 which came with Sense 5 and Android (Jelly bean) 4.2.2. Its a bit of disappointment that this would be the last update for this phone.

The above screenshot lists down some major changes in software, but there are many more tweaks. Sense 5 is major upgrade over Sense 4 with lot of UI changes with almost every icon updated (read that as flattened).
