Android in November 2013

As is customary for Android, they release a monthly pie-chart in which they show the progress of each new version of the Operating System, as well as indicate how all the rest are doing.

Motorola during Cyber Monday: Apologies and Rectifications

A few days ago I posted something about Motorola’s upcoming sale. They were going to offer their device, the Moto X, for a very reasonable price on Cyber-Monday ( which, as a non-american, I had little to no reason to care about, but I went ahead and told people about it anyways – if you you’re curious, I have a ...

CyanogenMod Installer: Not on Google Play Anymore

Nokia Owning 90% of Windows Phones

It’s no big secret that Nokia is owned by Microsoft now, and whether that’s good or not remains to be discussed ( I’ll do that at some point in time – weight the advantages and disadvantages, so keep a look-out for that article ).

GTA San Andreas – Soon on Android

GTA San Andreas, arguably one of the best ( if not THE best ) installment so far ( I haven’t played GTA V so don’t tell me IT IS THE BEST – as a PC Gamer, it doesn’t exist for me ) is finally coming to Android as of December. Rockstar Games, while taking a break from basking in the ... Read More »
