A little over a month ago, XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan reviewed a device that was an external battery plus a plethora of options from RAVPower. Perhaps the most useful feature of that device is the battery, because while it is nice to have a Wireless SD Card Reader, most the time you just need it to juice up your phone. So why buy a multipurpose device when you can get just a battery—and a big battery at that!
Let’s be honest with each other for a moment here: You have something in your teeth. Just kidding. But seriously, as awesome as our smartphones are, they are not dedicated MP3 players.

We’ve said this before, but one of the best things about Android is just the sheer number of options available. If I want my phone to act in a certain way, there is always (pardon the phrase) “an app for that!” With Android, you can access apps and other parts of your device with gestures, and today we will talk about another option to control your device with gestures.
XDA community members are known for boosting the performance of their Android devices in much the same way that baby boomers would modify and improve their hot rod cars.

The great thing about Android is you have your choice of apps to do just about everything. There are over 9000 different Messaging apps, so you can find the one you like best.

We’ve often heard that the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup. That may or may not be true, but reading news articles about my topics of interest, like XDA and Android news, is one of the first things I do when I wake up. I’m not a morning person, so navigating to different places can be annoying. Maybe there is a way to aggregate all my articles.

It’s coming, it will be huge, it will change the world as we know it, and it has a pretty silly name. What is it? It is the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is the buzz term for the world when everything is connected to the Internet: TVs, toasters, couches, anything. The great thing about that is that we will be able to develop and automate things, or at least make them easier. How can we take advantage of that?
