MTV has released an Android app on <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301248==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mtvn.mtvPrimeAndroid" rel='nofollow'>Google Play</a> for its programming, bringing it in line with the version for <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301249==https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mtv-watchwith/id422366403?mt=8" rel='nofollow'>iOS</a> 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, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301250==http://androidcommunity.com/mtv-app-arrives-with-full-episodes-and-companion-viewing-experience-20131223/" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> <em>Android Community</em>.

<strong>Dogecoin wallet service hacked, estimated 21 million coins taken</strong><br />
<br />
A storage service for Dogecoin, a virtual currency in a similar vein <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301245==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/11/28/hard.drive.with.7500.bitcoins.lost.in.landfill/" rel='nofollow'>to Bitcoin</a>, 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 <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301246==http://dogewallet.com/" rel='nofollow'>website</a> and, in a message on its site and on <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/301247==http://www.reddit.com/r/dogecoin/comments/1toz92/dogewallet_explanation/" rel='nofollow'>Reddit</a>, has begun the process of refunding coins back to their rightful owners.
