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.
Mad About Your Transformer’s Low Volume? Try This…
For those of you who have been around the world of smartphones for long enough, you will likely agree that most, if not all manufacturers set the volume of the devices at a very low level, no matter if it is the speaker volume, media volume, or in call volume. We always have a hard time hearing to others because of this. The ASUS Transformer unfortunately did not escape this fate as the volume coming either from the speakers or even from the head phones is annoyingly low. Whoever, our devs came up with a solution for this a while ago. Most sound parameters are contained in csv files that can be easily modified and replaced. For instance, XDA member meww tried the same method that he had used in his G1 and surprisingly enough, he claims that it worked. Results being reported in the thread are somewhat mixed as many people cannot even push the file into the device, but it is worth a shot if you are up to it. Needless to say, you must be rooted and you need to have some basic knowledge of adb to do this.
Please leave feedback if this worked for you.
All credit goes to Meltus from G1 forum. I use this on my G1 and gave it try my transformer and it worked great.

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...
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. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
