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.
The Great Fusion: a Thought-Evoking Adventure
It’s rare to see an old school point-and-click adventure on the relatively modern tablet and smartphone, which is surprising, as the touch screen is probably the perfect medium for such a genre. Hoping to change that, we introduce The Great Fusion: developed by XDA Recognized Developer hazex. It’s a classic point-and-click adventure game driven by a not-so-futuristic plot that’s eerily within the realm of possibility of our world’s future.
You take on the role of Max in the year 2022, a once aspiring hardware and biotechnology engineer who had his future and aspirations stripped from him due to the prevailing social, economic, and political corruption in wake of the drastically degenerating global economy. It’s a world that you don’t want to be part of, but are forced to dwell in as you try to scrape a living. The Great Fusion isn’t a game of action or simple-minded fun. It’s a journey that explores the underlying social, economic, and political criticisms of our modern world through an enjoyable medium. As you point and click your way through a journey represented through beautifully hand-drawn graphics and atmospheric backtrack music, The Great Fusion cleverly alludes to the many affronting aspects of the society we live in and further draws you into the a well crafted plot.
The Great Fusion isn’t for everybody. The Great Fusion is compatible with Android versions 2.2 and above, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if you’re a fan of the point-and-click genre, or a patient person who can appreciate the thought, design and cleverness that The Great Fusion has to offer, check out the original thread for more details.

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 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...
