Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
All In One Galaxy Hack Pack
Our devs spend countless hours and tons of blood, sweat, and tears in the process of gathering information and knowledge so that they can make our devices better. This is no easy task as you have to remember that manufacturers don’t always provide the documentation required to do half of the things that we normally do on our phones and tablets. In many rare occasions, the tech representatives from the manufacturers will have nothing themselves. So, where does one go to get this information? To answer your question and save you a ton of search time, XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler has put together what he calls the “Galaxy Hack Pack”. The dev, as you may know from some of his work, has spent a tremendous amount of time researching into the Galaxy devices, particularly on unbricking methods such as JTAG and a few others, and has picked up a ton of useful utilities in the process. He has decided to compile all of this information and his findings about what apps are useful for hacking the Galaxy devices into a single thread. Please keep in mind that these tools are not for novice users since they can mess up your device beyond recovery if used incorrectly. Also, the dev states that because of this, he will not be walking people through the “how to use” each tool. Basically, if you cannot understand what each tool does from its description in the thread, you should probably not be messing with them.
If you have any additions that you would like to point out for this wonderful resource, please let the dev know.
However, you are here looking for the GalaxyS Hack Pack. During the last few months I’ve been collecting software and resources. This package contains everything known to help with research, investigation, security and hacking on GalaxyS phones and the Android platform. I’m not helping you root your phone, nor providing market applications. This package is not intended for new users.
You can find more information in the original thread.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
