Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Sixaxis Controller Configuration Tutorial for GTA III
One of the biggest pains of playing video games on a non-console platform is configuring your controller to work properly. Making sure everything works in every environment, testing and re-testing until everything seems right.
Well, if you’re a Sixaxis controller user and you play GTA III, then this is a pain you won’t need pills to fix. XDA Senior Member Jameslepable has taken the trouble to figure out the most optimal button configuration and has created a tutorial to help those who are having trouble doing it.
The instructions for use are relatively simple and noob friendly, so it doesn’t take a great deal of knowledge to get his configuration to work. His instructions:
1)Download sixaxis and GTA3 from market place (obviously)
2)Download profile from bottom of post.
3) From GTA3 menu go to options>controls>adjust on foot controls/adjust driving controls and make them look like the screenshot.
4)Then go to sixaxis controller settings>edit touch profiles>Load Profile>gta3 vx.x and ensure that they match the screenshots.
The file he mentions can be found, along with the screenshots needed, further instructions and the button mapping list in the original thread. So far, it’s confirmed working on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus since that’s where it’s posted, but the directions seem pretty universal and could possibly be used on other devices as well if they’re compatible with GTA III and Sixaxis.
Now, as Jameslepable puts it,
Go shoot some hookers!

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
