Home Launcher for LG Optimus Ripped and Available for Android
We have been seeing Android devices from virtually every smartphone manufacturer out there, and all of them presenting features different from the next one. A bit of a late bloomer, but LG decided to join in the fun as well with the Optimus series of Android phones.

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.
