Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Plethora of Tweaks Released for All Nexus S ICS ROMs
Modifications and tweaks are the spine on the book of the underground Android development community. Without them, a ROM is just a ROM and a kernel is just a kernel. With them, they become unique pieces of one of a kind work that people can truly enjoy.
It is in the spirit of sharing that XDA Recognized Developer brainmaster has released his collection of ClockworkMod flashable tweaks for the Samsung Nexus S and they are compatible with all Android Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs.
The tweaks cover a range of things, from RAM optimization to build.prop modifications and there’s well over half a dozen easily flashable tweaks in all.
Of course, as with flashing any tweaks, there is the disclaimer. As brainmaster writers:
ALWAYS make a NANDroid Backup of your current ROM so that you can go back if you don’t like the tweaks.
I will NOT reply any users PM’s regarding this thread or my ROMs, only the DEVs should contact me over PM.
If you are user and have questions, write HERE in the thread.
BEFORE asking any questions, make sure that you read this post.
So if you have a Nexus S and want to give it a little extra bump in its step, then you can check out the whole collection of tweaks with details on what they do along with download links in the original thread.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
