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.
HTC Threatens shipped-roms.com
Thanks to a tip from XDA moderator hilaireg, which was based on a thread started by XDA member ongoingissues, we just learned that HTC decided to raise the legal flag against one of our developer’s website. More specifically, a website called shipped-roms.com, which is maintained by our very own XDA member conflipper. For those of you not familiar with the site, it is meant as a repository for shipped roms (hence, the name of the site) for all devices, including devices going as far back as the Blue Angel. HTC has claimed that the roms being hosted in there represent illegal distribution of Intellectual Property, and therefore has sent a “take down” notice to conflipper.
The website is question was only set up to aid younger chefs in the cooking process and also to help those who needed to return their devices to stock, which happens to be complicated for older devices since the roms are no longer distributed by either HTC or the carriers for these devices.

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.

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