Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store.

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.

We've documented many of the reasons as to...
