Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? 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.
Voodoo Soundpatch for Asus Transformer
The sound of the SRS speakers in the Asus Transformer has been loaded with issues and haunted by what many believe are hardware defects. However, over the last couple of weeks, our devs have been putting out fixes and patches for things such as the balance of both speakers. Since things are working now, it is time to start improving them a bit and this is just what XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had in mind. According to him, the tablet from Asus comes loaded with a good set of sound drivers that make it compatible with one of his most infamous fixes (if you come from the SGS world, you will likely recognize this in no time), Voodoo Sound. This is being made available for Transformer users and tweaked specifically for this device by the dev. According to him, this will allow the TF to play either through the speakers or headphones, crisp clear sound without crackling or breaking.
There are two versions of the app, one which will require a kernel with modules to enable this and the other being a stand alone. Please get the one that is most suitable for you. Also, please leave some feedback.
Asus EeePad Transformer hosts a very nice audio codec by Wolfson that powers both the headphone and speaker output.
Its the ultra low power WM8903, implementing a midrange DAC (Wolfson-scale) that outputs a clean and musical signal, and my favorite Class W headphone amp, that gives a clean controlled and accurate output, and is able to drive full-size 300 Ohms headphones without distortion.
You can find more information in the fix thread.

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...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
