Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Dim Capacitive Buttons on HTC Rezound Running Sense 4
Capacitive buttons aren’t generally the most tweaked items in the Android hacker’s arsenal. While they can often be too dim, many find them way too bright.
Having the backlight too bright can distract users attempting to use their devices to read or play games in dim environments. After all, it’s a little hard to concentrate with that home button glowing at you. In fact, the capacitive buttons being too bright was a major issue causing light leakage for the HTC Amaze 4G. Now owners of the HTC Rezound can lower their brightness as well.
XDA Senior Member rsage has released an easy-to-install script that will lower the brightness of the Rezound’s capacitive buttons. The idea came when rsage found a script that permanently turned the lights off or on. He then figured that this would be a nice in-between solution for Rezound users.
The installation instructions are pretty basic. Place the update.zip on your SD card, flash in recovery, and reboot. The modification is currently only compatible with Sense 4.0 ROMs—as any version below that is actually compatible with LeeDroid Tweaks, which includes a similar mod.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
