Nintendo DS on Android – Early Stages

XDA member shad0wboss pulled our attention regarding the upcoming Nintendo DS emulator for Android. No, it´s not here yet but the work seems pretty neat and started to test an alpha version of the emulator, which is ready for download. just make sure that you have a powerful enough device to use this. According to the original article, future versions will include Dynarec CPU simulation, GPU simualtion improvement for speed, and hardware render (eg, OpenGL ES), among others.
It is mentioned as well that a final stable version may not be ready before 2012 or more. This is definitely worth the wait.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance.
