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.
Tap Your Bee all the Way to the “Honey-Line”!
Yes, pun was intended, and it was terrible. But that’s not the point. It’s the distant future and science has progressed so far that humanity now has the ability of helping the neighborhood friendly bees through their daily lives and routines with technology. However, pollution and the negative externalities of industry have weakened our bees, so you, a scientist at Cybernetics Science Laboratories, have been assigned to help out a bee.
That’s the brief backdrop of a game called Cyber Bee, an app developed by XDA Forum Member Maze Software. The aim of the game is to tap and guide your bee through a variety of mazes to reach the honeycomb on the other side, while dodging hornets and bumblebees who block your way, collecting flowers and crates full of goodies such as fuel and bullets. You can deck your bee out with different bodies, weapons and flying mechanisms which improve your bee’s performance and agility, and also allow your bee to fight back against the nasty hornets. There are four different gaming modes each consisting of fifteen levels, ingame grading system and ingame store.
Cyber Bee is most definitely a challenging game, but with a pretty fun and novel concept behind it. It is compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if this sounds fun to you, head over to the original thread for more details.

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...
