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.

Starksoft Smart CallerID for Android
We would like to see more work on dialers for Android as the default one is quite simple. So, XDA member -=(Kad)=- presents Smart CallerID for your Android device. The app allows you to use a high resolution image to give that touch of personal style to your dialer, features notifications after the end of an outgoing call with the contact information and call duration, notify the loss / finding the network, as well as the inclusion of flight mode, and full screen callerID.
The developer has tested it on a HTC HD2 but should work on other similar devices running Android 2.1 and up. You can grab it in the usual place and on the original thread. Please leave some comments.

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...
