Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Inspire 4G Audio Issues on CM7 and MIUI Using Boot Manager Resolved
It’s incredibly frustrating when audio doesn’t work right. As many different things we use our devices for, one of the key features in these scenarios is that they involve sound. When the audio is messed up, it can really throw off user experience, and turn what should be an a great ROM into something no one wants to use. Owners of the HTC Inspire 4G have been running into said problems recently, most notably with using Boot Manager with CM7 and MIUI. Now, there’s a fix.
The fix, released by XDA Senior Member elbermu, is actually a modified version of InspireMod, but it adds a couple of extra files to help make the audio work again. The mod is easy to install, as it’s just a recovery-flashable update.zip. Elbermu explains the contents a little more clearly:
AIC3254_REG_DualMic_MCLK.csv and CodecDSPID_MCLK.txt.
NOTE: installing this in another ROMs may break sound (mic included) specially ICS. I’m not responsible for anything that may happen.
MAKE A BACKUP FIRST
Don’t attempt to use this fix on any ROM that isn’t in the aforementioned list, as it will likely do nothing more than break your audio altogether. And while fixes are nice, half working audio is better than no audio at all. In case this doesn’t work for you, you must either restore a Nandroid backup or navigate to /system/etc in your favorite file root-enabled manager and deleted the files manually.
If you’re having audio problems on your Inspire, hit up the original thread to get your fix.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
