NFC Hardware Hacking Forum Added
NFC lends itself to some pretty interesting and amazing possibilities. With NFC-based task automation and well-publicized mobile payment options, NFC may well become a central component in your future (or current) smartphone. In fact, more and more new phones are coming with the technology, and for those lucky enough to have it, you are probably waiting for the next killer app for the nascent platform.
Maybe you’re an app developer thinking about incorporating NFC into your next application, or perhaps you’re trying to hack NFC onto previously unsupported devices and unsupported carriers. Whatever the situation, we realize that NFC hacking is important. As such, we are creating a new forum for NFC Hacking that will serve as an extension to our Hardware Hacking forum.
What are you waiting for? Head over to our new NFC Hacking forum to get in on the discussion and start some new development projects!

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
