Stress Test Google Latitude: Android User’s Help Needed
XDA moderator Stericson, known for being the creator of MetaMorph and NinjaMorph, is stress testing Google Latitude on Android. Goal of this stress test is to see how it performs under heavy load. The way he tests it is by getting as much ‘Latitude friends’ as possible. The current number of friends is 840 and Google Mobile seems to be showing some interest in the test.

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...
