ASUS Transformer Boasts a 500Gb Hard Drive

A thing of fairytale, the idea of 500Gb storage on a tablet. Especially on any device we own, it’s something no one has seen or heard of, only complained about.

The ASUS Transformer, for me, really is the peak of progression. It was the product we, in the technology community, had been waiting for for a very long time, and didn’t expect to see it rising over the horizon. The Transformer as a whole is comparable to a Macbook Air or a netbook, because of its design, being the same size and featuring the same functionality. The tablet itself is comparable to the iPad 2, with its aluminium design, mobile operating system, and camera’s, front and back. There is an element of functionality which surpasses the rest of the market. The ability to use the keyboard in conjunction with a stand-alone tablet, retaining the touchscreen functionality.

However, there is a massive flaw with this device when deciding to choose it over a regular netbook. A netbook has an average of 250Gb storage–Where is that on the Transformer? It’s non-existent. XDA member goodintentions didn’t feel this was good enough and I agree. If you’re going to create such a breakthrough product, at least stock it with storage that can rival other manufacturers. He decided to open his Transformer dock, rip away plastic which wasn’t doing very much, push wires in different directions, and place a 500Gb hard drive in the middle.

These are the developments we like to see. Thank you for taking the time to void your warranty with no guaranteed success, for our guaranteed success after voiding our warranty. The original thread to void your warranty is here.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
