This may not be an Android specific announcement, but it's worth mentioning nonetheless. Yesterday at the Google I/O press keynote, Google announced Google Play Music All Access. It is a revamped version of Google Play Music that brings an exciting new feature, full access to streaming music like Spotify or Rdio. If you combine the new All Access feature of Google Play Music with your own music library, you get one powerful music solution.
Unfortunately, this Google service isn't free like many others, but the price is nothing to freak out about. $9.99 a month gets you unlimited, ad-free streaming of over 18 million songs on your Android device or any computer with a web-browser. But wait, as if that wasn't good enough, if you sign up for the All Access feature before June 30, you get All Access for $7.99. That's $2 less than competitors like Spotify and Rdio. Plus, it works seamlessly like any other Google app on your Android phone.
On top of the All Access debut, Google decided to revamp the existing Google Play Music app to include the new feature and totally redesign the app. It takes after many of Google's recent design changes, mimicking the Google Now card-style interface.
If you're in the market for a new music streaming service but have a collection of your own, Google Play Music with All Access sounds like a perfect solution. Tack on the cheap $7.99 early adopter price and the deal just became that much sweeter.

Well, readers, Google I/O is off to the races and I've been listening to it starting at the keynote this morning. This is obviously a very exciting event for the entire Android community and I want to keep you all informed of the major happenings as they unfold.
Three and a half hours in and, no we don't have any X Phone info, but we DO have info on the Google variant of the Galaxy S4!
For the most part, the device is the same as it's carrier branded brothers, boasting 16GB and 4G LTE but it will come from the factory with an unlocked bootloader and will have a "pure" Android experience. This will be very appealing to Galaxy users who may not have enjoyed the TouchWiz launcher experience. It wall also get updates as they are available, with no delay due to the carrier rebranding and rebloating the OS.
It will retail for $649 and will be available directly through the Google Play store. As of now, AT&T and T-Mobile are the only carriers that will support this variant and it will be available on June 26, 2013.
We, of course, will keep you posted on any additional major announcements as they come out!
One of the easiest things you can do is root a phone with an unlocked bootloader. If you have rooted your device manually though you may not know the method. The above method shows you how to first flash a custom recovery then install root.
Check out the above video to see just how easy HTC has made it to Unlock the bootloader on their latest flagship device with their HTCdev website. Everything is pretty simple and if you can follow directions then you can unlock the bootloader on your HTC One!
After Unboxing the HTC One this weekend it is easy to see why this is the Flagship device. It comes equipped with a Snapdragon 600 quad core processor clocked at 1.7Ghz, 2GB Ram, and a 1080p display! This looks to be a really sweet device!
A 2013 guide illustrating which companies help protect your data from the Government.
When you use the Internet, you entrust your conversations, thoughts, experiences, locations, photos, and more to companies like Google, AT&T and Facebook. But what do these companies do when the government demands your private information? Do they stand with you? Do they let you know what’s going on? This report will allow us to recognize and applaud those that do and condemn those that don't.
