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.

Put an End to Library Late Fees With Biblioholic for Android
You just remembered that your son had taken some books from the library and they were due a few days ago. Also, the fees for late returns may have just gone up in your public library. If this situation sounds familiar, then you really need to look into XDA member vesperaNovus‘s app. In essence, the app is a reminder type app, which will allow you to input as much information as you want for a book that you took out from the library. It will also remind you about the book’s due date before it happens. That way, you can stop wasting money on fees and such. The app also has the capability of notifying you via Twitter, so there is little to no excuse for being late any longer.
If you think this is a useful app or if you can think of anyway in which to improve it, the dev would love to get some feedback from you. So, please share your thoughts and findings.
Greetings. Tired of returning library books late? Biblioholic allows you to manage books you have checked out of a library system.
Add a book(s) to the list, select the due date, and receive a notification when it is due!

You can find more information in the application thread.

We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
