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. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
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.

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...
