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.
Flyer Owners And Devs – HTC Puccini Rom Leaked!
Leaks are the life and blood of the mobile development scene. More often than not, leaks get ported to all sorts of devices, enabling new features in the process. The rather silent HTC Flyer world just got hit with a leak for its AT&T counterpart, the HTC Puccini. XDA member ikingblack found it and immediately posted a link in the Flyer forums for the devs to start cracking it open to see what goodies it was loaded with. And better yet, what kind of bloatware will be taken out from the rom once it becomes bootable.
Needless to say, and as you would expect, the leak in its virgin form cannot be flashed onto anything. What is more, the devs who have been able to flash it cannot get it to boot. It will take some time, but it looks rather promising and if this can be cracked, we may start seeing new roms for the Flyer and maybe even for other devices as well. So far, logcats are being retrieved, so sit tight as answers (and possibly a booting rom) will be here soon!
If you can help and/or contribute to this project, please drop by the thread and take the leak for a spin.
It’s a HTC Puccini leak/rom, but it isn’t flash able.

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...
