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.
Mount Points Available For HTC Rezound
This one is more directed to devs and cooks out there than anyone else. It seems that XDA member xboxexpert has been able to fully identify the mount points in the memory map for the HTC Rezound. Basically, what this does is to let a kitchen or a rom builder know where everything is located and how much space is available to flash something. Every piece of memory inside of the device has a specific location and knowing which location this is basically enables you to flash a rom in the correct partition, a kernel in the correct partition, etc.
The dev, due to not having a device with him at this point, was unable to provide the sizes for each part of the map. However, we are certain that once this device becomes more available to people, all the missing gaps will be filled in. If you are using a kitchen like XDA Senior Moderator’s dsixda, you will need to update the script manually with the values provided. XDA Recognized Developer JoelZ9614 does this in a post in the second page of the thread.
So, what are you waiting for? If you were simply waiting for this to start cooking, get to it!

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...
