XDA is Back; SOPA/PIPA Still a Threat

We want to thank all of you for signing our pledge today. We hit 50,000 signatures much faster than expected (actually, we had over 80,000 before eliminating duplicate IPs). We debated staying dark longer, but are keeping our commitment to XDA members to return online at the 50,000 mark.

We know that sites like Wikipedia will continue to raise awareness among the general public. We hope more savvy users–like those on XDA–will continue to be the loudest and most vocal opponents of SOPA and PIPA. We all have the most to lose. Whether you signed our pledge or not, please do contact your local Senator or Representative, or, if you’re not in the US, inform any friends or family you have in the States that might not know about the damaging repercussions of SOPA and PIPA.

XDA continues to look for ways to protest this legislation. If you have any ideas, please PM Svetius.

Now in a world with smartphones and notifications, you can get richer, more reliable experience on your mobile device, even offline".

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
