This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

Hulu Plus App for Rooted and Unrooted Epic 4G Touch and Other Unsupported Devices
As we’ve discussed before, the use of video streaming applications such as Hulu and Netflix while on the go has been on the rise recently. Despite the developer’s efforts to make Hulu available to all (major) devices, there are still a few devices such as the Samsung Epic 4G Touch that are not yet supported.
To help ease the pain, XDA Senior Member ReActiveDisorder has released a modified Hulu application that works on all Epic 4G Touch devices, regardless of Android version. In fact, since the developer removed the phone check, there is also a chance that this could work on many other devices that have not yet received Hulu’s official blessing. Says ReActiveDisorder:
I have a Hulu membership and was angry cause our device wasnt “Compatible”. Talk about a total rip off. So I modded the apk to work with our device.
I disabled the phone check within the app itself.
The modified app is easy enough to install. Simply put it on your SD card and side load it like any other application. The best part is that there is no root required, so on the off chance that one of our community members hasn’t yet rooted, they can still take advantage of this modded file. While the application is modified, users will obviously still need a Hulu Plus account in order to access content.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
