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.
CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 3 Now Available for 50 Devices
Nowadays with the growing popularity of rooting and device modification, there are quite a few legitimate players in the large-scale, multi-device custom ROM scene. There are new greats such as OmniROM making a splash with impressive new features, as well as older giants like ParanoidAndroid and AOKP, both of which have been home to quite a bit of major innovation over the years. However, there’s one large-scale, multi-device custom ROM that for better or worse stands in its own category, and that’s CyanogenMod.
After its relatively recent incorporation, CyanogenMod Inc started doing some pretty interesting things. We recently took a look at the CyanogenMod edition of the Oppo N1, and are all very excited to see if OnePlus One really amounts to two. But luckily, despite all of CyanogenMod Inc’s progress as a company, they have still kept up with their original mission of developing for the community.
Now the CyanogenMod team has gotten one step closer to the “stable” build of CyanogenMod 11, with the release of CyanogenMod 11 Milestone 3. Unlike their nightly builds, these nearly monthly snapshot builds are highly polished, with almost no major bugs or issues. That said since these are not final builds, there may be a few minor issues here and there that have crept through the cracks. In any case, these are likely to be incredibly minor. So if you’re a CyanogenMod user, you should definitely give the M3 builds a shot.
You can get started with M3 by heading over to the source links below and downloading Milestone 3 for your device, as well as the appropriate Gapps. Then once you’re done downloading and installing, be sure to head over to your device forum here at the XDA Forums to get in on the discussion and also share your thoughts on M3 in the comments below!

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...
