Toggle Auto Update for Android Market
A new feature that is available in Android 2.2 (Froyo) is the option to allow auto updating of Apps in the Android Market. This is incredibly useful if you have tons of apps and want to update them all without individually clicking “Install” on each application prompt.
Thanks to XDA member eddieringle for releasing their simple toggle that allows you to toggle this feature using a simple widget. Since the app is just a toggle there aren’t many “features” to it, but we encourage you to go install it and let it handle all your Android Market updates. The developer also added that if enough people want to that they will develop a little widget for it which would be even simpler than opening the app.
To try it out and leave feedback, check out the discussion thread. and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments!

But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...
