Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day?

Share Your Statuses on Facebook and Twitter at the Same Time with Shareboard
The constantly increasing popularity of social networking forces us poor Android users to share our statuses multiple times. But why should we spend much time Tweeting and sharing our statuses on Facebook when we can use a single application designed and developed to handle multiple social networks at the same time.
One of these application is Shareboard by XDA Senior Member anandbibek. With this application, we can easily post our statuses on Twitter or Facebook and possibly other social networks that are not yet added. Our statuses can contain both text and images. And of course, if you don’t want to use one of these services, you can disable it.
This application doesn’t run in background, so unnecessary synchronization won’t be triggered. Shareboard is free of Google Analytics, so the big brother from California can’t spy on us either. With this application, your privacy is kept intact as no statistics are collected and cached on your device—though that’s obviously not the case for when the posts make their way onto the aforementioned social media sites. Perhaps the UI isn’t quite as flashy as other social media apps, but many will favor its minimal interface.
More information about privacy and the app itself can be found in the original thread, so if you are a #Facebook and #Twiiter junkie, you should definitely go there and give Shareboard a shot.

But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
