This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

Triple Boot WP7, SD, and NativeSD on the HTC HD2
When we talk about the HTC HD2 nowadays, it is in shock and awe that it managed to survive yet another round of software updates from Windows Phone and Android. It has even been shown running Windows RT. It continues to exceed all expectations, as developers have figured out a way to make it triple boot.
XDA Senior Member mengfei has posted a tutorial that will help get the HTC HD2 to triple boot. It is not a very stable method and mengfei says that not everyone will be able to accomplish this. The method works by creating three partitions using a SD card and the internal memory. Then users install ROMs to those partitions. It’s a loose description, as the tutorial is actually much longer.
To get started users will have to make the partitions. Here is what users will need:
1 FAT32 Partition
1 EXT4 Partition
1 WP7 Partition
MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition (MTPW) using this to do those above.
In the tutorial, users will be installing WP7 first, then the other operating systems afterward. The whole process will take some time. However, once finished, the HD2 will be able to boot into any one of three different ROMs. Users have reported that the method works, albeit with some tweaks here and there to the process.
To learn how to triple boot on the HD2, go to the original thread.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
