Right-Click Android Tools for Ubuntu

It’s no secret that Android is a Linux-based operating system. It stands to reason that ADB and the other Android SDK tools just feel more at home running on Linux. Many developers, ROM cooks and power users choose Ubuntu to run these tools because of its ease of use and low learning curve.

If you are a developer or power user running Ubuntu, XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm has created an invaluable collection of Nautilus scripts that allow you to preform several crucial tasks with a simple right-click. This makes processes like signing APKs and running scripts as root quite simple. There are currently five right-click scripts to accomplish tasks such as compressing and signing multiple packages or compiling packages.

If these scripts could be of use to you, head to the release thread and install them. Don’t forget to thank lithid-cm, and be sure to check the thread regularly for updates to the toolkit.

Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. 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...

Do ISPs Abuse Their Power?

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...
