It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis.

Know The Song At All Times With Tune Pop
XDA member rbtconsultants came up with the perfect solution to the eternal quest of not having to do anything with your device and yet get every last bit of interaction with it. Well, it may be a bit of an exaggeration but this app is still rather neat. If you are listening to music, the app basically will display a pop up window with the name of the song and the artist on your device, regardless of the app that you are using at the moment. You could be browsing the web, trying to find directions to your friend’s house, or anything really, and the app will pop up each time the song changes, giving you the information that you need.
Please provide some feedback for the dev to see if the app can be improved.
Do you use your Android phone with GPS Navigation while playing music in your car?

Tune Pop is the answer! Tune Pop will pop up the Song Title and Artist name, as a toast popup. Now when a song starts or resumes you will be alerted with the title and artist of the song.
You can find more information in the application thread.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
