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?

Epic 4g Touch Receives Sony Xperia Bravia Engine Port
Development for the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch has been slowly increasing over the last couple of months. Just a couple of days ago we told you about the modification to allow Epic Touch users access to all their 4g settings and there’s word around the rumor mill of CM9 in the works as well.
This very unique port has add ons and features that many Xperia fans are already used to, including:
-Sony Xperia Software
-Sony PSP Live wallpapers
-Sony Bravia Engine

Anyone who’s looking to try out the Sony Bravia goodness can check out the full change logs, screen shots, download links and the not yet working list in the original thread. The link to the Sony Bravia wiki may be down as many sites are doing a black out in opposition of SOPA and PIPA. If you travel to Wikipedia, you may get redirected to a site where you can sign a petition against those two bills.

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...
