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. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
SC2Casts App for Windows Phone 7
XDA member Nudua presents his application SC2Casts for your Windows Phone 7, sporting all the same great features from the SC2Casts.com site but with a nice metro UI. With this app, you’ll be able to enjoy some of the most intense, amazing and unique battles between the Starcraft II Pro players, narrated in English.
So far, it has cataloged over 1000 games, and the database is being updated and increasing daily.
– Recent section – displays the top 20 matches from today/yesterday;
– Top section – displays the top 20 matches from either last 24 hours/week/month or all time;
– Search – there’s a search button in the top right corner that lets you search for players/casters/events;
– Browse section – let’s you browse by player/casters/event or match up.
This app is fully functional in free mode but with limited ads, only difference is that the full version has no ads. Get it via Zune and if you liked it, please leave your feedback.

Just wanted to share a project I’ve been working with SC2Casts.com, that lets you watch Starcraft 2 vods from the site.
There are currently thousands of vods up there, with players like Idra, White-ra and recent dreamhack winner Huk. (dreamhuk!) And more videos are added daily.
*Browse section – let’s you browse by player/casters/event or matchup
*Favorites – add any match to your favorites list, easily displayed on the first page
*Mediaplayer – a fully customized mediaplayer that lets you toggle the quality HQ (360p) / HD (720p) (u can also set defaults at the settings page)
The matches are displayed in a way that doesn’t spoil the results of a set.
You can also Like or Dislike any set, those are updated directly to the site as well.
This is the free ad-supported version, but it has all the same features as the full version.
Continue to the discussion thread.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. 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...
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...
