Have you Tried Binary Sudoku?

We live in a world that is hungry for high-end graphics. Especially in the tech community, we constantly strive to make games that are ever more processor intensive. We tend to forget that some of the greatest games of all time are the simplest.

XDA Member rickboerebach decided to keep it simple as well. His latest game is called Binary Sudoku. The basic premise is simple: solve a modified sudoku puzzle using only one’s and zero’s. The rules of the game are as follows:

#1 Each empty cell has to be a one or zero.
#2 A maximum of two similar numbers below or next to each other are allowed.
#3 Each row and each column is unique.
#4 Each row and each column must contain as many zeros as ones.

The game is definitely challenging to play, and has over 100 puzzles built in. So head on over to the thread here and give it a spin. Your brain will thank you for it.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. 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 Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

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.

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