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.

Forums Added for the Moto X and LG G2
So the much anticipated Moto X launch has come and gone, and many power users were left feeling a bit underwhelmed. Packing a 1.7 GHz dual-core variant of the Snapdragon S4 Pro and a 720p AMOLED panel, the Moto X is certainly not in the same category as the class-leading flagships of 2013—or even 2012. Though with two ancillary processors working in tandem with the main CPU to process specialized tasks, the device’s X8 “Mobile Computing System” is certainly its standout feature.
The LG G2, on the other hand, is every bit a flagship device. The device, which as yet to hit store shelves, features a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC. The Snapdragon 800 is comprised of the new Krait 400 processor and the Adreno 330 GPU. The G2 features a 5.2″ 1080p True HD-IPS+ LCD, weighing in at relatively dense 424 ppi, and all of this is packed into a relatively thin 8.9 mm chassis.

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...
