Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors.

Printing Done Right, with Simple Cloud Printing!
Many users routinely view and edit documents on their phones and tablets. Despite this, printing applications for mobile devices are not extremely common.
Thanks to XDA Member vivekkalady, those of us who need to print on the go now have another alternative with his latest application: Simple Cloud Printing. The application’s strongest point is its simplicity. According to vivekkalady:
