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.
New Low Storage Notification Fix for Galaxy S I9000
Many Android phones have random and silly bugs—nothing serious, mind you, but things that can often be annoying. One such bug is the receiving a low storage warning when you have plenty of storage space left. While it may seem like a minor inconvenience, your Android device believing it has no space left can prevent you from doing a lot of things such as downloading new apps from the Google Play Store. This is a problem that has apparently plagued Samsung Galaxy S I9000 users for awhile. Now, there’s a fix.
While the issue has been resolved in the past, this particular mod is aimed at devices running CyanogenMod. This is because CM utilizes a small, but fast flash chip to store data in /datadata. However, this partition is just 170MB in size. For many users, this is no big thing, but for those who use a lot of apps, the dreaded low notification is quite the unwelcome guest.
This is where XDA Senior Member Wendigogo comes in, bringing a fix that alleviates the problems associated with the low storage notification. The fix gives users control over where applications store their cache. For larger applications that use a lot of space, you can move it to the standard /data partition and leave the other apps where they were. This eases the burden of the tiny partition somewhat, and should stave off the low storage issue for awhile.

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...
