ID4me is an internet service that enables its users to log in to many different internet services with one account. This is also known as "single sign on".
Unlike existing global single sign on solutions like the ones from Google or Facebook, ID4me does not track and analyze the internet surfing habits of its users. ID4me will make sure that the surfing habits stay secret.
Also, ID4me does not belong to an enterprise. It is an open standard that is maintained by a nonprofit organization. Anyone who wants to can participate. This way the users can chose freely between different ID4me providers and can also change the provider anytime.
As expected, HTC stuck very close to the stylish design of the One with the One Mini, but there are a few changes. Above all, the frame consists of shiny, polycarbonate plastic rather than aluminum. This impacts the design language in the sense that the HTC One Mini is more rounded, but also a little less refined compared to the original One. If you appreciate the design and features of the HTC One but find the size or price a barrier, the HTC One Mini offers a really good alternative. Along with the decreased price you lose some performance and hardware and get a hint of plastic.
