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.

Reboot Options For Samsung Continuum
There are several roms out there that will allow most Android devices to perform a wide variety of actions upon pressing and holding the power button. Thanks to XDA member imnuts, the Samsung Continuum may be joining that family of devices capable of doing this useful trick. Once it pulls up, the app will give you several options to chosse from (airplane mode, silent, reboot, and much more). Please be advised that the dev does not have the device but based on information from other Galaxy devices, the Continuum should work without an issue by applying this flashable package. So, apply this at your own risk.
If this mod worked for you or if you are having issues with it, please leave some feedback to ensure that this can be fixed in case it doesn’t work properly. The dev has attached the stock power off options in case you want to go back.

This requires a deodexed system and CWM recovery, and the ROM from Adrynalyne would probably be a good start since that’s where I pulled the files from.

The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. 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...
