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.

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.
EVO Shift 4G Kernel Sources Released by HTC
XDA moderator toastcfh comes bearing a nice little gift, courtesy of HTC. If you were happy about getting perm root on your HTC EVO Shift 4G, this will likely make a tear roll down your cheek. HTC just released the sources for the “speedy” kernel used in the aforementioned device.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
