It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Do You Want More Fingers On Your Atrix Screen Recognized? Try This…
So, you have probably seen some of the newer Android devices like the Asus Transfomer do something rather interesting. Their screens are set up in such a way that the device will accurately recognize up to 10 individual touch points on it. While the Atrix may not get that much from this new fix, XDA member michael0619 brings us the next best thing by providing a way to get the Atrix to recognize up to 5 points on the screen. Want to slash away on Fruit ninja? Now is your chance. In retrospect, 5 fingers should be enough as it would be somewhat complicated to get all 10 of your fingers on a screen that size. The dev also does mention that it is possible to get the device to recognize more than 5 points but it becomes less accurate. Finally, the dev provides two ways of getting this up and running: one via CWM and the other by modding a few things by hand, so choose your method depending on your level of comfort.
Please leave some feedback for the dev to see if this is working correctly or not.
More than 5 points is not perfect,but it can be identified.
use cwm recovery update .zip file
you can also modify the code in the file by youself

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
