Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

It’s here, the first real OpenGL ES 2.0 demo! Some of you may know already my Tigre Engine. The last few days I started to add OpenGl ES 2.0 support and below are the first results. I’ll publish all the code as soon as its 100% ready, if you can’t wait you should have a look at the current engine at my page, with full source code and a lot of demo applications.
To the demo itself: It shows a very simple phong shader applied to different meshes. If your device has a gsensor, then you can spin around the camera by rotating your device. I’ve tested the demo with my HD2 and got a bit more than 50 FPS, which is really good (but remember, its only a prototype and I have a lot of ideas how to improve the performance:-))
- .net 3.5 runtime
- windows mobile 5,6,6.1,6.5 or 6.5.3
- opengl 2.0 with shader compiler and 1.x support
For more information continue on to the application thread.

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.
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...
