Why Doesn’t Android Come Rooted?

Rooting your Android phone is a rite of passage. It unlocks the functionality that separates Android from iOS and opens a realm of almost infinite customization. Replacing the entire operating system is possible on a rooted device. So, given the benefits, why aren’t Android phones rooted from the factory?

ochDownloader – A Small & Simple Downloader Manager

The average Internet user will probably handle nearly everything they download online through their web browser. Some browsers do it right – Opera’s built-in download management is the best in the field. Others, not so much.

Technology Explained

How To Get The Most From Your Earphones

You might be swayed by the fact that such-and-such musician has their name on a certain pair of headphones, or that these particular earphones looks really cute, or dashing, or whatever.

Waze: A Social GPS For Your Daily Commute [iOS]

Out of all the navigation apps that are currently on the market, Waze may very well have the best concept. The only catch is that it doesn’t have a “big name” backing it (like Google or Apple Maps). Regardless, it’s on our list of Best Apps For The iPhone, and there’s a reason for that. The app blends elements from both crowdsourcing and mapping to create something truly useful.

Sick Of Your GPS App’s Data Connection Flaking Out? Try 3 Updated Offline Maps [Android]

Not long ago, Chris covered three of the best offline GPS apps available on Android. Since then, many other GPS apps released or received major updates. Do these newcomers compare favorably with those reviewed by Chris? To answer this question, I evaluate the apps based on four criteria – first, how effective is the app at helping users navigate offline? Second, what are its top features? Third, how data efficient is the app? Fourth, is the paid version worth purchasing?

Can You Recover Data Deleted From Your Cloud Drive?

We put our files in the cloud to make things easier – we can access them anywhere and it’s our cloud storage provider’s job to keep them safe, not ours. But it doesn’t matter how reliable a cloud storage service is if you delete a file from your cloud drive and want it back later. Luckily, there are several ways you can restore deleted data. None of these methods are completely foolproof.
