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.

Unofficial CM10 Lands on the MyTouch 4G
The number of AOSP Jelly Bean releases has slowed considerably over the last few weeks. This is mostly because so many devices already have it, and not many left are truly capable of running it properly. However, there are still ports coming through now and then. One of the latest is for the HTC MyTouch 4G.
The unofficial port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member elginsk8r. Like most early releases, it is a little unstable, but that shouldn’t scare you away from trying it if you want to see what Jelly Bean is all about. Quite a few things are working, including:
LCD Screen (Both variants)

Currently, the camera is not functional, and there are possibly other unknown broken features. If you do try it and find any issues, feel free to submit a logcat so the issue can get fixed faster. User response has been positive despite the issues.
The problems should be fixed in coming releases, so if you’re waiting for a more stable ROM, patience is the key. For more details, check out the original thread.

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...
