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.
Make Calls Via T-Mobile Wifi on Your Nexus One with CM7
One of the thing that plagued Nexus One owners wanting to use CM7 was the fact that they could not use Internet calling via Wifi. Due to the fact that his girlfriend wanted to have this feature running in her Nexus One, XDA member unforgiven512 took matter into his own hands and started working on a patch to enable Wifi calling on T-Mobile, just like the G2 has. Cyanogen added as well all the necessary code fixes to get this patch to work in all nighties version 21 and above. Please bear in mind that this fix is only for those of you on T-Mobile USA and will not work with any other carrier.
If you have a Nexus One, why don’t you give it a shot and see if it works well? According to the dev, all bugs should be gone, but feedback is always welcome.
I finally did it. I’ve got T-Mobile WiFi Calling working on CyanogenMod 7.0.0 on the Nexus One!
Here it is, everyone!
UPDATE: Here’s version 1.2, everyone! It will work with CyanogenMod 7 Nightlies, build 21 and up. It’s been tested, and works. The necessary changes are actually in the new CM builds (unlike last time, but that’s been fixed), and there should be no issues (as there were with version 1.1). Enjoy!

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...
