Get Your Nut On with Noogra Nuts
I’ve never written about a game before. It’s not that I don’t like fun, I just don’t have much time to play games with my (not so) busy schedule. I’ve even been neglecting my Steam buddies for the last few weeks due to my schedule. My very busy schedule. Did I mention that I was busy?
What drew me the Noogra Nuts, developed by XDA member Oren Bengigi (user Obg1), is its simplicity and ability to be as addictive as many of the old 2D games that we all know and love. With a similar 2D engine to that of Pong or Brick Breaker, the aim of the game is to stop any falling nuts from hitting the ground, long enough that they will crack open and let you eat their delicious contents.
Now, this may sound like a game which is easy and lacks many pull factors. However, you’d be wrong. It’s popular, enjoyable, and a darn good challenge for one reason; You can never get all the nuts and you know you never will, but you can’t accept it!
This really is a game for those who want to kill a lot of time, and have a lot of fun doing so. If you would like to grab it yourself and show the developer some support, head to the original thread, hit up the Market, and leave a delightful message of gratitude for all those hours that you’ll now spend playing this game instead of World of Warcraft.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
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? 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.
