Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter.

Remove Cell Standby Service from Nook Color
Many of our members have noted a thing or two about the Nook Color, but XDA member xboxexpert hit the nail on the head while trying to remove useless processes from the device.
