Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Looking For Developers Who Want to be on XDA TV
Come join me on XDA TV!
Hey everyone. I need to start out by apologizing for the slow start on my XDA TV show. It turns out that doing interviews over hotel internet doesn’t work no matter where you are in the world. My business trip has ended, which means my show, XDA Insider, is ready to get going.
My show is all about you! The community. Each week I will be sitting down with a developer, admin, moderator, or anyone else who helps contribute to the community.
Obviously, I can’t kick start the show without a guest, so this is my callout: Would you like to be on XDA Insider? Post here or send me a private message containing 2 pieces of information – 1. what you do on this site 2. what times during the day you are available for interview.
Please remember that this show will be interactive, so we will need to set a recording date so I can give the community ample time to ask any questions they would like.
Show recording times
I prefer to record the show on Sunday in the morning Japan Time (+9), but anytime Sunday should be fine. Keep in mind that this is Saturday evening for those of you in the Americas
Suggested Recording Times Based on Location
Americas: Saturday evening or Sunday morning (This is Sunday morning or evening for me)
Europe and Africa: Sunday morning (This is Sunday afternoon for me)
Asia and Australia: Our times are similar. Mid-day would be best to adjust for the couple hours difference.
Continue to the original thread.

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.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
