Solar Powered Charger Screen Protector

New clean technologies are just around the corner and soon we won´t need to use wall chargers anymore.
XDA member oka1 let us know about a solar powered charger screen protector that apparently will be out next year. Picture yourself during a trip and imagine that you forgot to charge your device the previous night. That could be a nightmare for a lot of people, but with this screen protector all you need to do is to get close to the sun to recharge.

According to the source, the typical smart phone could charge completely in 6 hours under direct sunlight, or longer under indoor light. But even more exciting is the fact that the covering would constantly top-up your phone’s battery, meaning that you have to charge via a wall plug much less often. And because phone batteries can use this constantly-available power to stay charged, phone manufacturers can stop making them so huge. Smaller batteries can lead to even smaller, thinner phones!.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

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...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
