calc+

MultiROM Once Again Available for the Galaxy S4

Galaxy S4 MultiROM

Multiboot, or the ability to select between multiple operating systems on a single device at boot, is an inherently interesting concept.

Lego Mindstorm NXT Charger

Unfortunately, we don’t quite see so many hardware modifications, probably because many users are unwilling to turn their expensive devices into guinea pig test platforms for potentially hazardous hardware mods. However, not every hardware mod has . . . READ ON »

An Android Enthusiast’s Apple iPhone 6 Challenge

Adam's Apple

The media has gone batty again over Apple “revolutionizing” smartphones. However, as a lot of Android fans will tell you, there is nothing revolutionary in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
