Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough.

Transformer Prime Receives No Guesswork Overclocking
We all knew that with the unlocking of the bootloader, would come a boost in development for the Asus Transformer Prime. Not only are there new mods being released every day, but there’s some apps and mods that are helping out our more novice community members.
XDA Forum Member DrWowe brings us an application that overclocks the tablet with nothing more than a click of a button. No tricky user interface to learn, and no guess work. The application, named EZOverClock, does as its name suggests and allows users to change their clock speed using the Asus status bar using pre-configured settings. This is done to allow anyone to overclock.
In the words of the developer:
Once this application is installed, you can switch speeds as usual using the ASUS statusbar. The speeds become (by default, but there is a configuration menu) as follows:
Power save: 1.0 ghz
Balanced: 1.3 ghz
Performance: 1.6 ghz
Naturally, root is required to run the application. For those who want an easy way to overclock without all the mess, please visit the application thread for additional details and download links.

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.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. 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...
